This is the story of Georgie, a little boy who at only 3 ½ years old is in mortal fear of his mother’s boyfriend who he calls the Rudy monster, and whose only comfort in his life of abuse are his memories of the man named daddy who works where the airplanes live. Of his mother Kellie whose yen for excitement led to the breakup of her marriage to an Airforce officer. Of Rex, the faithful old dog who knows that he must get his boy to a safe place even at the cost of his own life and who takes Georgie to find daddy. Of Captain Allenford, the man named Daddy who while in Afghanistan is powerless to save his little boy. Of Tim Forester, the cop who will stop at nothing, break all the rules and do whatever it to find Georgie and bring him home. And of the Rudy Monster whose brutality is matched only by his cowardice and love of violence.
