One by one, the children of New York’s wealthiest citizens are being taken hostage. But the criminal doesn’t crave money or power. He only wants to ask the elite if they know the price others pay for their luxurious lifestyles. And, if they don't, he corrects their ignorance by killing his prisoner. With ten kids of his own, Detective Michael Bennett can’t begin to understand what could lead someone to target anyone’s children. What is clear is that these murders are linked and must be part of a greater, more public demonstration. As the city is thrown into chaos, Bennett teams up with an FBI abduction specialist, Agent Emily Parker, to capture the killer before he begins his most devastating demonstration yet. One that could bring cataclysmic devastation to every inch of New York.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Bobby Cannavale returns as Detective Bennett, slipping into his best Brooklyn accent and giving a hard edge to the character. As the kidnapper, John Glover employs a nasal whining tone perfectly suited to the character, and the phone conversations between cop and criminal are rich with tension. Orlagh Cassidy gives Emily an appealing gentleness.” Publishers Weekly
