Publisher's Summary

There are 25 elite kidnap and ransom specialists in the world. Only one is a woman: Thea Paris. And she's the best in the business.

Twenty years ago, a terrified young boy was abducted in the middle of the night by masked intruders while his sister watched, paralyzed with fear. Returned after a harrowing nine months with his captors, Thea's brother has never been the same.

This life-shattering experience drove Thea to become what she is today: a world-class freedom broker. Most hostage-recovery work is done at the negotiation table, but when diplomacy fails, Thea leads Quantum Security International's black-ops team on highly sensitive rescue missions to political hot spots around the globe.

Her childhood nightmare resurfaces when her oil magnate father, Christos Paris, is snatched from his yacht off Santorini on his 60th birthday, days away from the biggest deal of his career. The brutal kidnappers left the entire crew slaughtered in their wake, but strangely, there are no ransom demands, no political appeals, no prisoner release requests - just obscure and foreboding texts written in Latin sent from burner phones.

Knowing the survival window for kidnap victims is small, Thea throws herself into the most urgent and challenging rescue mission of her life - but will she be able to prevent this kidnapping from destroying her family for good?

Uneven series start but would read the sequel

This is an interesting twist in the thriller genre, and welcome on many levels. But ultimately it thrills less than it should. That said, I'd listen to the sequel. Everything is "decent" or "good" but I never felt my pulse quicken.

A surprise! Never a dull moment!

This was a bargain purchase and in one of my favorite genres. I was pleased to find a complex and fast moving plot. I will try this author again.

Had high hopes for this one, but it was only ok!

I heard an interview with the author, just a couple of days ago, and this, her first thriller novel, sounded really interesting! I'm an avid listener of thrillers/mysteries, and feel that the author followed an already frequently used style of thriller story line! I'm certainly not qualified as a book critic, however, I found this book to be only mildly "thrilling" or interesting! So sorry!
