John Bekker returns in First Light to face the toughest challenge of his career.
Hired by a man dying of cancer to locate the baby girl he gave up for adoption forty years ago‚ Bekker discovers the baby wasn’t adopted but sold to a New York couple named Gertz. They named the child Sarah‚ and Sarah Gertz disappeared without a trace twelve years ago in Washington DC.
Bekker uncovers evidence linking Sarah Gertz to the powerful Senator Oliver Koch‚ who is the next candidate for Vice-President. Twelve years ago‚ Koch and Sarah had an affair that left her pregnant. Bekker is convinced Koch had her murdered‚ but unless he can prove it‚ a murderer will be in the White House.
