Aaron Elkins has been hailed as "a master" (The Dallas
Morning News) for his Edgar(r) Award-winning Gideon Oliver
mysteries. Now, in an original new novel, he illustrates how
quickly everything can go wrong when you ask: What's the
worst that can happen?
For Bryan Bennett, designing hostage
negotiation programs is the perfect job-as long as he keeps
a safe, theoretical distance. What he can't do is deal
directly with kidnappers or their victims, as a result of
his own abduction and imprisonment as a small boy.
Thirty-some years later, intense nightmares still plague his
sleep, and a fear of enclosed spaces prevents him from
attempting to travel. So when Bryan's boss asks him to fly
to Reykjavik, Iceland, to teach his corporate-level
kidnapping and extortion seminar, he automatically says no.
But the CEO of GlobalSeas Fisheries, Inc. has specifically
requested Bryan-or no one else. Bryan finally relents...
decades he's treaded gingerly around the edges of his
deepest terrors. Now, on this trip, Bryan'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 and years ago?
