“[E]ngrossing first novel…Readers will root for the sympathetic Duncan as he morphs into a more grounded version of James Bond or Jason Bourne.” –Publishers Weekly
“…very evocative, very descriptive…” –L.A. Review of Books
Duncan Luke is no stranger to impossible situations. A high-priced lawyer and expert in business intelligence, he knows how to extricate his clients from sticky situations while saving–or making–them millions. To be the best, he’s sacrificed everything, including his family, but now he wants out. He’s quitting his lucrative practice for academia and time with his autistic son, Sam. But his wife isn’t on board and files for divorce, forcing him to fight for custody.
With mounting legal bills, Duncan must take on one last job. He plans to get paid and get home to Sam, but Ghislaine Bingham, the client, has other ideas. She doesn?t like the looks of her new lawyer, though can?t win without him, so she hatches a plan to ensure his success whether he agrees to her meddling or not.
From L.A.’s towering palms and Tokyo’s steamy noodle bars to London high-finance and Panamanian corruption, BIG: BEGINNINGS is a thrilling, non-stop ride around the globe. As Duncan flies across time zones doing battle for Ghislaine, risking his life and reputation, Sam slips further away. Duncan must finish the job to get him back, but time is running out.
