Interesting premise - the villains in this book are four unemployed college graduates who turn to kidnapping for money. They keep it low profile for two years - selecting wealthy men who can afford to pay small ransoms of $60,000. When they target the wrong man, however, their carefully built house of cards begins to crumble and it's a mad dash to freedom with the cops and the criminal underworld after them. The cop and the federal agent are better developed than in many thrillers. Good page-turning read for summer!
