Overview

"Take the kid." Adrenaline took over his body. Dominic bolted towards the back door. He could hardly see, hardly think. Where's the door?! Where's the door?! The store erupted in shouts, falling shelves and merchandise. Dominic screamed as someone behind him lunged forward and dragged him to the ground. His hands hit the floor with a jarring pain that traveled all the way up his arms. Dominic fought to get out of the man's hold, but then another pair of hands was on him. Then another.

Overview

"Take the kid." Adrenaline took over his body. Dominic bolted towards the back door. He could hardly see, hardly think. Where's the door?! Where's the door?! The store erupted in shouts, falling shelves and merchandise. Dominic screamed as someone behind him lunged forward and dragged him to the ground. His hands hit the floor with a jarring pain that traveled all the way up his arms. Dominic fought to get out of the man's hold, but then another pair of hands was on him. Then another. There were too many. Dominic twisted and screamed and screamed until someone punched him hard in the gut. He could only cough and sputter as his body curled in. Someone else slapped his face so hard, his vision blurred. They all dropped him to the floor where Dominic could only squirm in pain. Dominic, a young Haitian man living an average life, is thrown into a sea of troubles when he is mercilessly kidnapped from his home for ransom. This sets off a chain of events that spans three countries and launches him on an adventure of struggle and perseverance.
