(Tina Boyd 3)

A race-against-time thriller to save a kidnap victim, from one of the newest superstar.

Andrea Devane is terrified. Her thirteen-year-old daughter, Anna, has been kidnapped from her house while she was away on business. Her husband - Anna's stepfather - has also disappeared . There is no sign of forced entry.

Andrea has already received a ransom demand stating that her daughter will die if she does not pay two million pounds in cash. Somehow she manages to raise the money but when she delivers it, there is no sign of Anna. She's been betrayed.

Now she's received another demand for a further two million. And when two of her husband's fingers are posted to her, she knows the kidnapper means business. Andrea has thirty-four hours left to find the money, or her daughter dies.

But this time she's seeking help. She contacts Detective Mike Bolt of SOCA, who is convinced of one thing: this is personal. The kidnapper knows Andrea, and he's taking pleasure in tormenting her and those nearest to her.

But is her daughter still alive? The clock is ticking …
