This was a pretty good book. Moved a little slow at times and the ending was a little unbelievable. This was about Mitch Rafferty and his wife getting kidnapped. He was given 60 hours to come up with 2 million dollars to save his wife Holly. Mitch owned a landscaping business but nothing that earned that kind of money. The killers kill an innocent man to prove they mean business when they make that original phone call. Detective Taggart is the officer investigating the murder of the man. Detective Taggart proves to be a problem for Mitch throughout the book. He shows up at the most inopportune times. The kidnappers point Mitch to his brother to receive the next call. Here Mitch realizes why his wife was chosen. The story unravels. The thing is Mitch does a lot of bad things in the book. He kills a couple of people, assaults a cop and at the end it’s like none of that occurred. Life ends happily ever after. I just found this hard to swallow. There was no punishment for anything he did. There was not talk of what he did. It all just went away, the kidnapping, the murders, everything.
