Publisher's Summary

Allison Leahy is the U.S. attorney general and the highly touted Democratic nominee for the presidency. Her opponent is Lincoln Howe, a retired 4-star army general and bona fide African-American hero. Both candidates are living the American dream, until their neck-and-neck campaign takes an ominous turn when Howe's 12-year-old granddaughter, Kristen, is kidnapped on her way to school. Now both candidates come under fire for exploiting the tragedy to their political advantage, and Allison must face her own painful past, when her own adopted baby daughter was abducted and never found.

What the Critics Say

"This is a gripping (and frightening) story about the Machiavellian world of American politics." (Booklist)
"Janney's dramatization involves the listeners to such a degree that we feel Allison's desperation as time is running out for her to find and save the young girl and confront her own painful past." (AudioFile)

    "Utterly implausible"

    The plot is utterly implausible, specially the ending. There was no need for the protagonists to be presidential candidates. The book is too short. And the audio wasn't very good.
