It seems I have arrived late for the party yet again. Kidnap & Ransom is Michele Gagnon’s fourth novel, The Gatekeeper, Boneyard and The Tunnels are here other works to date. I am going to get right to the rundown of what the novel is about and then we can discuss it:
“When the world's foremost kidnap and ransom negotiator is snatched by a ruthless drug cartel, Jake Riley becomes ensnared in the effort to save him. But he's up against Los Zetas, an elite paramilitary organization renowned for

This was my first introduction to Michelle Gagnon's work and I am very impressed. I understand it's her fourth book in the series, but I didn't feel like I had missed out on the histories and relationships because Ms. Gagnon did a great job of making this a stand alone story and peppering just enough back story to keep the character relationships complex but not to much to dilute the pace.

I loved the fact that I was carried away by the story, completely pulling me in to the point I was no longe

Another book that convinces me never to go to Mexico! Besides that the return of serial killer Stephan was as terrifying as his appearance in "The Tunnels". I hope Michelle Gagnon writes another one for adults after her recent foray into Young Adult novels. Overall without giving anything away...another good read from Michelle Gagnon!

A good addition to the Kelly Jones series. This one takes place in Mexico where Jake and his Co. look for a kidnapped businessman and Kelly chases her arch nemesis Stefan. Great action and adventure but a startling conclusion. I can't even guess where this goes next. I recommend it to fans of the series, but
if you haven't read this series start at the beginning.

Engrossing! Very dark read which means to me that it's probably pretty true to life. Had no idea that kidnapping was used that often in various parts of the world. Knew it happened but not to this extent. Characters and their problems are very well drawn and the resolution makes perfect sense.

Michelle Gagnon brings up a shocking conclusion to the Kelly Jones thriller series in Kidnap and Ransom. It continues where it left off in the Gatekeeper. More drama and tension are in the air as Kelly deals with the loss of her leg and wearing a prosthetic ankle for her leg, while she's on leave. There's friction with her relationship with Jake, while it takes a backseat for the while. When his brother Mark is missing in action in Mexico, he brings his K&R team along to help rescue Cesar Ca ...more
