Four friends, recent college graduates caught in a terrible job market, joke about turning to kidnapping to survive. And then, suddenly, it's no joke. For two years, the strategy works like a charm - until they kidnap the wrong man. Now, two groups they've very much wanted to avoid are onto them: the law and an organised crime outfit out for revenge. They crisscross the country in deadly pursuit and after a series of increasingly explosive confrontations, each of them must face the truth: the real professionals, are those willing to sacrifice.

display_description "Four friends, recent college graduates, caught in a terrible job market, joke about turning to kidnapping to survive. And then, suddenly, it's no joke. For two years, the strategy they devise--quick, efficient, low risk--works like a charm. Until they kidnap the wrong man. Now two groups they've very much wanted to avoid are after them--the law, in the form of veteran state investigator Kirk Stevens and hotshot young FBI agent Carla Windermere, and an organized crime outfit looking for payback. As they all crisscross the country in a series of increasingly explosive confrontations, each of them is ultimately forced to recognize a brutal truth: The true professionals, cop or criminal, are those who are willing to sacrifice everything."-- Provided by publisher.
