A thirteen year-old girl has been taken – and Special Agent Maggie Kincaid is the only one who can get her back. 
When a Senator’s daughter goes missing, every minute counts. The FBI’s best hostage negotiator, Agent Kincaid, knows what it’s like to be a terrified victim. Kidnapped as a child, those memories haunt her every day – and give her an insight into the evil mind behind this deadly crime. 
But the Senator’s family has other plans, and have brought in ex-forces security expert Jake O’Connor to oversee negotiations. He’s got secrets of his own, and doesn’t play by the same rule book. With time running out, Maggie and O’Connor will have to overcome their differences to keep this case from ending in tragedy.

Then her former boss and mentor, Frank, persuades her to help with a new case. A senator’s teenage daughter has been kidnapped. Maggie agrees as long as it’s clear she doing Frank a favour and not rejoining the Bureau. Continue reading
