His only chance to save a young girl’s life is to put his trust in a headline-hunting kidnapper.
Former reporter Scott Fleetwood and his family are still recovering after tangling with a notorious kidnapper, the Piper, when another kidnapper grips the city. The Shepherd has snatched a young girl from a vacationing family. Other than money, he has one demand: he’ll talk only to Scott.
Special Agent Tom Sheils is on the case and will watch over Scott every step of the way. The Shepherd promises the girl’s safety as long as Scott follows the rules of his game. Forced to trail the kidnapper’s twisting lead—and haunted by the last victim he failed to save—Scott is desperate to keep the past from making a brutal comeback.
But just when Scott and Sheils think they’re winning and that it will all be over soon, the Shepherd ups the stakes. Scott begins to realize he’s a pawn in a scheme that runs deeper than greed…and colder than death.
