Surgeon Dooley McSweeney and his wife Claudia worries about the health of their adopted son as they fear he has leukemia. Thankfully, the infection turns out to be mononucleosis. However, they also learn that Teddy's bone sample displays evidence of the antibiotic tetracycline, a drug the McSweeney never provided to their son nor could the dirt-poor Russian orphanage be able to have obtained it. It seems that Teddy never came from Russia so Dooley begins a quest to learn more about Teddy's past.

In Moscow, celebrity reporter Gabrielle Coulter is stunned when someone kills her video-photographer and destroys their tapes that expose horrid conditions at a local orphanage. Soon her search for the truth joins the McSweeney efforts, but a bottom line only adoption factory mill will do anything even murder of innocent little ones to keep the profits high.

This is an exciting thriller that will shake readers with what feels like a modern day Charles Dickens tale of child abuse caused by an orphanage manufacturing plant. The story line is action packed yet quite emotional as the audience will feel for the children and the McSweeneys. Fans of taut thrillers that provide a deep message will want to read D'Amato's tale.
