Pg. 99: Evan Kilgore's "The Children of Black Valley"

The current feature at the Page 99 Test: Evan Kilgore's The Children of Black Valley.

About the book, from the publisher:
There is an abandoned nuclear silo in the jungles of Africa. Sam Mackie isn’t sure what it has to do with him, with his life. He’s a mid-level pharmaceutical executive. He’s divorced. He’s lonely.

But then someone kidnaps his son, Daniel. Daniel, the quiet kid who other boys picked on in school. Daniel, who understood how much his father had to work, and ate pizza alone for dinner most nights. Daniel, the only good part of Sam’s life.

Sam will do anything to get him back, including traveling halfway around the world to discover the link between his son, the dark nuclear silo, and his own mysterious past.
Among the early praise for the novel:
"...picks up speed and chaos with the smash-mouth ferocity of a Bruce Willis epic..."—Kirkus Reviews
