From the Inside Flap

‘We’ve got your daughter.’ It’s evening, you’re back late from work – and the house is in darkness. You step inside, and the phone rings. You answer it – and your world turns upside down. Your fourteen-year-old daughter’s been taken, and her kidnappers demand half a million pounds in cash. They give you 48 hours to raise the money, and warn you that if you call the police, she’ll die. Trying desperately to remain calm, you realise that your husband – the man you married only two years previously – is also missing. But he can’t be involved in your daughter’s abduction. Or can he? As your nightmare begins, you can be certain of only two things: that you will do anything to get your daughter back alive. And that time is running out … --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
