International business espionage meets high-stakes family drama in this global thriller.

Duncan Luke is no stranger to impossible situations. A high-priced lawyer, he excels at the game of using business intelligence to eliminate threats to his clients or make them millions. To be the best, though, he had had to sacrifice everything, including his family, but now he’s burned out. He gives up his lucrative practice for an academic’s life and a chance to be a better father. Then his wife files for divorce, demanding full custody of their 10-year-old, autistic son, Sam.

Duncan is reeling. Sam won’t speak to him and his new salary doesn’t cover the mounting legal fees. To fight for Sam, Duncan agrees to take one last job. He meets the stunning Ghislaine Bingham, an executive with the Bingham International Group, who needs help with a family battle of her own. Her cheating husband is dead and her stepson wants to steal BIG from her. Everything she’s built and the future of her life’s work is at stake.

When Duncan and Ghislaine meet, sparks fly, but neither can walk away. Ghislaine hires him to persuade his friend, Aoki CEO, Taro Takayama, to cast Aoki’s swing vote against her stepson Ward. Duncan plans to do the job, get paid and get home to Sam. But Taka won't listen unless Duncan first resolves Aoki’s Panama crisis. Duncan races to Panama where he is kidnapped and beaten, stumbles into an international human trafficking ring and saves the life of a beautiful woman.

From LA’s towering palms and Tokyo’s steamy noodle bars to London high-finance and Panamanian corruption, BIG: Beginnings is a thrilling, non-stop ride around the globe. As Duncan flies across time zones doing battle for Ghislaine, Sam slips further and further away. Duncan must finish the job to get Sam back, but time is running out.

Greyson Bryan is an international lawyer who earned his B.A. from Stanford and a J.D. from Harvard, and taught at the Harvard Law School and UCLA. A longtime LA resident, BIG: Beginnings is his first novel and the first book in the BIG series.
