On his journey, Tom meets other pilgrims from around the world, each with their own issues and looking for greater meaning in their lives.

Friction is Sandra Brown’s newest novel.

Now his chance of getting her back rests with Judge Holly Spencer, who is running for election and whose every decision is high stakes. When a masked gunman barges into the courtroom Crawford saves the Judge from a bullet, but the man gets away – pursing the culprit in his usual diehard fashion could jeopardize his custody suit and compromise Holly – decisions need to be made carefully is this very personal pursuit.
