Brain surgeon David Evans confronts an impossible choice when a psychopath abducts his daughter and threatens to kill her unless he ends the life of a high-profile politician on the operating table. By the award-winning author of God's Spy.

Simon and Schuster
In this superbly written, nail-biting thriller, a top neurosurgeon is forced to choose between ending the life of the most important person in America or guaranteeing his own daughter’s horrifying death.

I am no saint, no martyr, no terrorist, no madman, and no murderer…I am a father. That’s my story.

Dr. David Evans is a well-respected brain surgeon at a hospital in Washington, DC, and a devoted father. But soon he is faced with the ultimate dilemma: if his next patient, who must undergo brain surgery, leaves the operating table alive, Dr. Evans’s kidnapped daughter will die at the hands of an implacable psychopath—and he will be forced to watch.

Over the course of fifty-five frantic hours counting down to his choice in the surgery room, Dr. Evans races to hunt down his pursuer and find a way out of this nightmarish predicament. But just how far will he go to save his daughter’s life?

“A roller coaster ride of fear and excitement unparalleled in modern fiction” (New York Times bestselling author Katherine Neville), Point of Balance will keep you on the edge of your seat with fast-paced action and raw emotion, as one man faces an impossible moral dilemma that could change the course of history.

Imagine if you will if you were persuaded to do something against all your value judgments while your child was being help captive, what would you do?

I liked this book, it was definitely page turner ,when i first opened the book and read the into i was hooked, its written in the first person and the author makes it work and it tells the story while the man was on death row, imagine 63 hours of adrenaline rush although the elusive Mr.White does escape it leaves the door open to a sequel whether there will be one i can't say but it would be interesting.
this was a satisfying read!!
