Matthew Rey has been kidnapped. The guerillas want three million dollars to relase him. Matthew had bought kidnap insurance and the amount of coverage was three million dollars. Some how they knew that. How???? The insurance company refuses to pay, claiming fraud on Nick Rey's part but is that the real reason?? Matthew is held in the wilds of the jungle, he may or may not survive even if the ransom it paid. Nick meets blocks every way he turns. The insurance company, the FBI, all seem to be against him. The book will hold your attention. You won't want to put it down. It has many twist and turns, one at the very end that I did not see coming. If you like a good mystery that is full of supense, you will like this book.

I really enjoy this author's books and this one is no exception. It is an easy and a fast read as it's hard to put down. It reminds me a bit of his novel "Found Money" in the fact that Nick Rey finds himself uncovering secrets about his father's life that had been kept from him. It explores the father- son relationship in a very similar way as did the other novel. It makes one wonder how much do we ever really know our parents? Mr. Grippando always seem to throw a bit of romance in and does a swell job of it too. To me the most amazing thing about this book though are the facts about Columbia. I will certainly never go there!! All in all I found the kidnap thing very effective. Great read!!

I really loved this book. I knew little about the South American big business of kidnapping for ransom from the perceived rich gringos up north and even less about how prolific it is, but by the end of this well crafted story I felt I had walked every step of the way with the main characters. Grippando gives them great humanity so that you relate so strongly to their emotions that it's very hard to put the book down. It's a thriller with a heart beat that at times leaves you breathless!
