Summary

Two years out of law school, Nick Rey is already on the fast track at a hot Miami law firm. But his dreams of success are overshadowed when his father, Matthew, is abducted while on a business trip to Colombia. The guerillas demand an impossible $3 million ransom - the exact sum Matthew's kidnap-and-ransom insurance policy covers. The insurance company suspects fraud, however, and refuses to pay. And, as Nick soon learns, it isn't the guerillas who hold the key to his father's survival. A group of faceless lawyers at a powerful firm has something to hide and will stop at nothing to keep Nick from discovering the truth.

Routine hostage drama

Would you try another book written by James Grippando or narrated by George Guidall?

Standard hostage story.He can do better than this. Well written but not a lot of imagination.

Would you be willing to try another book from James Grippando? Why or why not?

Maybe but I'm worried he's run out of creative steam

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Average

Did A King's Ransom inspire you to do anything?

No, nothing

Good story well told

I enjoy Grippando's books, but this is an early one of his so I was a bit reluctant to read. In the book, he powerfully draws u into a family's torment and redemption.

Splendid!

Exciting, fast paced and unexpected. A great novel, and George Guidall fantastic as always! Absolutely recommended.
