When Alexa Marcus, the teenage daughter of a billionaire hedge fund titan, is kidnapped, it's up to family friend and "private spy" Nick Heller--a former intelligence operative trained in the Special Forces--to find her before time runs out.
Alexa has been buried alive, a videocam trained on her night and day, her terror streamed live over the Internet. Who are her cunning and ruthless captors--and what do they want? And why is there no ransom request? With the help of an ex-lover, FBI Special Agent Diana Madigan, Nick must penetrate layers of deceptions and manipulations to hunt down Alexa's abductors. He will destroy anyone who gets in his way--even Alexa's own father, who refuses to reveal the one secret that will save his daughter's life. Meanwhile, powerful members of a conspiracy are on Nick's trail and determined to make sure that their secrets stay buried. But they don't realize how far Nick Heller will go to uncover the truth--and save a life.
