Stealing People

Robert Wilson

7 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Crime & mystery

A full-throttle, terrifying thriller from a truly masterful author.

In the space of 32 hours, the children of six billionaires are taken off the streets of London in a well-planned kidnapping. The perpetrators demand 25 million per hostage. For 'expenses'. Not ransom.

And when your child goes missing, you need Charles Boxer. A man who will stop at nothing. The wealthy parents of the missing children know that Boxer will do more than the police can, but that doesn't mean the law will leave it to him. Soon the investigation goes beyond the corridors of power and into even darker corners.

But still nobody knows what this mysterious kidnap gang ultimately want - and, if they have a cause, what the hell is it?
