A King's Ransom
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 on a business trip to Colombia. The guerillas demand an impossible $3 million ransom, the exact sum Matthews kidnap-and-ransom insurance policy covers. The insurance company suspects fraud, however, and refuses to pay. And as Nick soon learns, it isnt the guerillas who hold the key to his fathers 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.
