Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The latest masterwork from one of the leading writers of suspense . . . New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Lowell returns with a chilling tale of the law gone wrong and a kidnapping that threatens more than one life.

The Wrong Hostage

Orphaned at thirteen, Grace Silva clawed her way out of poverty and violence to become one of the most respected judges on the federal bench. Grace believes in the rule of law — lives it, breathes it. She has always been buttoned up and buttoned down.

Except once.

Joe Faroe has learned that laws are made by politicians, and politicians are all too human. He believes in the innocents, the ones getting ground up by governments that are too polarized or too corrupt to protect their own citizens. He's been through the political meat grinder himself. It cost him his career, his freedom, and the woman who still haunts him. Since then Faroe has worked outside the rules and politics of government as a kidnap specialist for St. Kilda Consulting, a Manhattan-based global business that concentrates on the shadow world where governments can't go. He is good at his work — intelligent, confident, ruthless.

Until a friend dies trying to kill him.

Now Faroe is out of the business. Retired. He's through trying to save a world that doesn't want to be saved.

Then Grace comes to him, past and present collide, and Faroe finds himself sucked back into the shadows, tracking a violent killer who holds the life of Grace's son in his bloody hands.

Synopsis:

Grace Silva clawed her way out of poverty to become one of the most respected judges on the federal bench. A steadfast believer in the sanctity of the law, she has never allowed doubt or vulnerability to cloud her judgment or influence her actions . . .

Except one time.

Now her teenage son is in the hands of a desperate and bloodthirsty criminal-and Grace must seek help from a face from her past: retired kidnap specialist Joe Faroe, a man who ruthlessly plays outside the rules that Grace upholds, a man she once recklessly loved . . . and betrayed. With time ticking rapidly away, she must trust Faroe to lead her safely through a deadly shadow world where laws and governments don't exist. But once they cross that border together, they might never make it back . . .
