“I have your children. Don’t call the police, or they’ll die.”

It’s a nightmare no parent should ever endure. Especially Alice Glendenning, a South Florida real estate agent who hasn’t managed to sell a single home—or collect any insurance money—after her husband’s fatal boating accident. Her daughter and son’s kidnappers demand $250,000, the exact amount she’s supposed to receive from the insurance company. To complicate matters, her housekeeper has contacted the police—a glaring error in judgment that puts a spotlight on the crime, the children’s lives at risk … and Alice in jeopardy.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Money, meddlers, and mayhem…well worth the read.”

    People

  • “This tricky plot turns on the small, unexpected details.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “A deft, sharply drawn, and thoroughly enjoyable stand-alone from a master writer, this fast-paced suspense novel features an appealing heroine, a well-realized plot, and enough wit to dial down the tension, let the reader take a deep breath, and enjoy Ed McBains latest.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “A sparkling departure from his 87th Precinct detective series…A swift, cleverly plotted story line, sassy dialogue, and a well-drawn, resilient heroine make this gripper a hands-down success. As one of our most prolific and talented writers, McBain appears to have struck gold once again.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “McBain has been writing crime fiction through five decades. He’s always very good, usually excellent, and occasionally transcendent. If this were his first novel, we’d anoint him the next great crime novelist of the new century. But since we have more than fifty years of great work on which to judge him, we’ll say instead that he’s still at the top of his game.”
