Publisher Comments:

Charity Meyers has only 12 hours to live.

By 2035 the rich have gotten richer, the poor have gotten poorer, and kidnapping has become a major growth industry in the United States. The children of privilege live in secure, gated communities and are escorted to and from school by armed guards.

But the security around Charity Meyers has broken down. On New Years morning she wakes and finds herself alone, strapped to a stretcher, in an ambulance thats not moving. If this were a normal kidnapping, Charity would be fine. But as the hours of her imprisonment tick by, Charity realizes there is nothing normal about whats going on. No training could prepare her for what her kidnappers really want . . . and worse, for who they turn out to be.

Synopsis:

When Charity Meyers is taken, she knows better than to panic--at first. As the hours of her imprisonment tick by, Charity realizes that no training could have prepared her for what the kidnappers really want--or worse, who they turn out to be.
