The message is one simple word: Vengeance.
Anonymous threats aren't unusual for a crime reporter. Even direct threats face to face are common, most never amounting to more than words. Michael Elliot has assisted the police with putting enough criminals behind bars to have earned his fair share.
But when Megan Scott, the love of his life and frequent investigative partner, goes missing, Michael realizes this threat is real. He has a list of five potential kidnappers, each more cold-blooded than the last, for the police to investigate.
Michael's instincts often steer him in the right direction, but he can't wait for the police to find Megan. Someone is out for revenge, and now they've given him just forty-eight hours to find her or she dies.
How is he going to beat the killer at their sick game?
