Four friends, caught in a terrible job market, joke about turning to kidnapping to survive. And then, suddenly, it's no joke. For two years, the strategy they devise works like a charm - until they kidnap the wrong man.

Now two groups are after them - the law, in the form of veteran state investigator Kirk Stevens and hotshot young FBI agent Carla Windermere, and an organized crime outfit looking for payback. As they crisscross the country in a series of increasingly explosive confrontations, each of them is ultimately forced to recognize the truth: the real professionals, cop or criminal, are those who are willing to sacrifice everything.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Really terrific - characters that live and breathe, a just-right story, and chills aplenty. Highly recommended -- Lee Child
Ingenious plotting, perfect-pitch characterization and evocative sense of place combine to create an impressive debut -- Jonathan Kellerman
A high-octane adrenaline and gunpowder-fueled rocket ride across the country from Seattle to Miami to Detroit and points in-between... An excellent first novel! -- C.J. Box
A breathtakingly fast-paced novel that seldom pauses for breath * Daily Mail *
An impressive first novel * The Times *
A fast-moving, entertaining thriller * Sunday Express *
A fast-moving debut thriller with enough twists to fill a pretzel bag... Let's hope Laukkanen writes more thrillers like this one * Kirkus Reviews *
