“For Ransom” is nothing short of spectacular. “For Ransom” is
character gripping, bittersweet and touching; its suspenseful plot
leaves the reader wanting more.
Here’s a brief glimpse into the mind of Sarah McClain and her new novel, “For Ransom”.
Hailey always finds herself in the London spotlight, due to her
father’s political status. Her father, Jack, has been a prominent member
of the political circle since Hailey was a little girl. Parties,
debates, fundraisers, events, and money seem to sum up the family.
Jack and her mother, Anne, don’t speak much anymore. Jack focuses on
money and work and power over his family. Love once lived in their
house. Hailey remembers laughter and smiles, but those have been
replaced with tears and avoiding looks.
At only 18, Hailey’s been through more than your average teenager;
numerous threats on her life, the death of her best friend, a family
that no longer seems to be whole, constantly looking over her shoulder,
and a security team following her around everywhere. However, with
political power, comes personal danger and a security team was
necessary. Eli has been head of the security team for some time now. His
devotion for the family has grown deeper since he fell in love with
Hailey. Her feelings were mutual, but both keep their love a secret for
fear of Jack and his reaction.
And now, to top it off, Hailey’s been kidnapped! A ransom as been demanded and her life hangs in the balance.
Will her mother and father come together to pay this ransom and bring
her home? Will Eli be able to find her before it’s too late?
Will the kidnappers follow through or simply take the money without freeing Hailey?
Will Hailey lose her faith or even her life in the process?
Will a ransom save her life?
