When Gabrielle Ash's wife and kids were kidnapped four years ago by Somali pirates, his life spiraled out of control. He left his job working for the British government and moved to a small town where he descended into near madness. But with the help of his dog, Patience, and his friendship with young police officer Hazel Best, his focus returned. So when he discovers that his wife is still alive, Ash is once again filled with hope and fear. Hope that he has another chance to find her and their two young sons; fear that, in trying, he may bring about their deaths. --Publisher

I really enjoyed the writing in this book. The problem is that the second half of the book, when the plot needs to be starting to make sense of this bizzare situation, it falls apart. Who seriously could believe (even within the confines of fiction) in what eventuates. For me it just didn't work. First half of the book I really enjoyed and was caught up by the characters and the plot but the second failed to convince.
