Trial lawyer turned nationally best-selling author, James Grippando has earned a reputation for his race-against-time thrillers, including Under Cover of Darkness, Found Money, The Informant, and The Pardon. His sixth book in just eight years, A King's Ransom surges with gripping tension. Fresh out of law school, Nick Rey lands a job with a prestigious Miami law firm, and he's at the top of his game. But a dark cloud of misfortune is moving in--his fiancee breaks off their engagement, and his father Matthew is kidnapped while tending to his fishing boat business in Colombia. Demanding three million dollars, the guerrilla captors can be dealt with easily enough. The real threat comes from men in suits--the lawyers, the insurance company, and the FBI. Keenly attentive to detail, Grippando spent 18 months interviewing victims and researching the notorious kidnapping trade in Latin America, including the secretive world of kidnap and ransom insurance. Narrator George Guidall masterfully voices this suspenseful, nail-biter--right to the final breathtaking scene.
