It’s two in the morning when Josie Bates’ ward, sixteen-year-old Hannah Sheraton, slips into Archer’s Hermosa Beach apartment to see if Josie sleeps in his bed. But Josie isn’t there. In fact, Josie isn’t anywhere. When her Jeep is found abandoned in a parking lot near the Redondo pier, the only clue to her whereabouts leads Archer to Daniel Young, an expert witness for the prosecution in the case that made Josie’s reputation as a defense attorney ten years earlier. Fighting to keep Hannah from being taken into custody by child protective services, racing against a clock ticking off the minutes of Josie’s life, Archer reluctantly partners with Daniel Young and a rogue Hermosa Beach detective, Liz Driscoll, to race down a winding road of intrigue. From the Hollywood Hills to the glitzy evangelical enclave of Orange County; the seedy side of Los Angeles to the pristine and remote California mountains, Archer bores into the past. What he finds is that the woman he loves was once a ruthless and hated defense attorney, that the system he believes in has released a double murderer, and that there is more than one person who would be happy if Josie Bates was never seen again.

What really separates a man from a boy? Is manhood just marked by age, or is there something else that really turns a male into a man?Brian Tome believes there are five marks that every authentic man in history has displayed, and pursuing them can be life-altering. It's a simple, ancient code that all fathers, sons, and husbands need to know, but is rarely taught. While the world is full of fluffy and confusing ideas about how men should behave, Tome uses his practical experience in leading men to expose the clear, simple truths about what makes men most effective.Just knowing these five marks, however, is not enough. True transformation comes from aggressively pursuing them in your everyday life.In Five Marks Of A Man, Tome shows you:- Why it's critical to have a vision for your life, and how to make hard choices.- Why you need to be a protector of people around you.- How to find a team that will support your goals.- How to establish a ritual to lead your own son into manhood.- And much more.As Tome writes, "I have come to believe that the transition to manhood is not marked by age, it's about something much more substantial. It's about your mindset and your actions. It's about assuming responsibility for your place in the world and stepping into a new reality-one defined by strength, purpose, and a code of honor."Through Five Marks Of A Man you will discover a code that great men have followed for centuries. Now, it's your turn to man up.

Though the journey is treacherous, they finally find themselves isolated, safe, and as far from Hermosa Beach as they can get. But Hannah's relief is short lived.

"Charging through the crush of bodies, evading security, a frantic man launches himself at Josie. Toppling her to the ground, he pushes something into her hands, puts his lips against her ear and whispers five words that will send her from the icy winter of Wahington, D.C. to the tropical warmth of Hawaii in search of Hannah. What Josie finds instead is a flamboyant ex-pat who deals in pineapple and hula dancers, and a Victorian coupound on the infamous island of Molokai where she uncovers a horrific, long buried truth...a truth that will change her life forever if she stays alive long enough to live it." -- T.p.
