For Bryan Bennett, designing hostage negotiation programs is
the perfect jobâ€”as long as he doesnâ€™t deal directly with
kidnappers or their victims. Intense nightmares of his own
abduction and imprisonment as a small boy still plague him
thirty-some years later, and claustrophobia prevents him
from attempting to travel.
So when Bryanâ€™s boss asks him to fly to Reykjavik to teach
his corporate-level kidnapping and extortion seminar, he
initially refuses. But a CEO has specifically requested
Bryanâ€”or no one else. Finally Bryan relentsâ€¦
For decades heâ€™s treaded gingerly around his deepest
terrors. Now, on this trip, Bryanâ€™s taken hostage again and
must face his fears full-on. Will he realize that in this
battle of will and nerve, he is his own greatest enemy? Or
has this fight already been lost years ago?
