A kidnap ... a ransom ... a choice. Matt Westbrook only turned his back for a moment. But when he looks around, his car--with his three young children inside--has vanished. Panicked, Matt assumes a car thief has got more than he bargained for, but then he starts to receive text messages: "This is a kidnap. If you want to see your children again, you will exchange them for your wife." Matt and his wife Annabelle are horrified. They can't involve the police, or their children will be killed. Which means they have to choose: Annabelle, or their children. Either option is unthinkable. But one is inevitable. And they have only hours to make their decision.
