Sonny Lofthus is a strangely charismatic young man. In prison, the inmates who seek out his uncanny abilities to heal, leave his cell feeling absolved. They don’t know or care that Sonny has a serious heroin habit—or where or how he gets his uninterrupted supply. When he learns a stunning, long-hidden secret concerning his father, Sonny makes a brilliantly executed escape from prison—and from the person he’d let himself become—and begins hunting down those responsible for the crimes against him . . . The darkly looming question is: Who will get to him first—the criminals or the cops? Based on the book 'The Son' by Jo Nesbo.
