Summary
"John Bekker returns in First Light to face the toughest challenge of his career as an investigator. Robert Gordon, chief of medicine at a major hospital, doesn't have long to live. He wants Bekker to locate the daughter he sold on the black market forty years earlier when he was a young widower still in medical school. Gordon's brother, a lawyer, handled the illegal transaction. Hospitalized with Alzheimer's, he doesn't remember a thing, but a detailed investigation of his records reveals that Robert Gordon's baby was sold to a childless New York couple. Mr. and Mrs. Gertz raised their daughter Sarah in a loving home until she moved to Washington, DC, to work as lobbyist. Twelve years ago, Sarah Gertz disappeared without a trace. Bekker heads to Washington and tracks the last days of Sarah Gertz's life. She was last seen after a meeting with Senator Oliver Koch. In the twelve years since, Koch has become the leading candidate for the vice presidential nomination in the next election. Bekker gets Koch's assistant, Chad Handler, to reveal that Koch had an affair with Sarah and she got pregnant, but Chad insists Koch had nothing to do with her disappearance. After an assassin's failed attempt on Bekker's life, Bekker is convinced that Koch was behind Sarah's vanishing act, as well as the attempt to kill him and his family, but he can't prove it. And without proof, a murderer could become the next vice president of the United States" --
