From the bestselling author of The Fourth Perimeter comes the story of a father who’ll do anything to find his missing daughter—including kidnap the U.S. Senator he believes abducted her. Tom Redmond is a former cop turned lawyer in upstate New York who couldn’t be prouder of his daughter, Jane, an investigative journalist for the Washington Post. But just as she prepares to break a front-page story on one of the most powerful Senators in Congress, Jane mysteriously disappears. Suspecting foul play, Redmond drives to Washington. He knows that if an abducted victim is not found within the first 48 hours of a kidnapping, the odds of that person being found alive are very slim. And as time ticks by with no sign of Jane, Redmond is forced to confront the Senator—and take matters into his own hands.

    " Read like an action movie. The beginning was compelling, but reading about hand-to-hand combat, deranged ex-Soviet scientists, and the evil of corporations is only interesting when it has really great characters to back it up, and this book did not. "

    " Plot line along the lines of the movies "Vanished" and "Taken"...aggrieved /Father loved one seeks release and revenge of daughter...interesting characters; familiar plot line...still a decent read!!! "

    " I would give this book a 3.5 to a 4, because it's not as good as some of his other books. He gives too many clues, so the reader knows what's going to happen before it happens. It isn't really foreshadowing... "
