Description
Allison Leahy is the U.S. Attorney general, the most renowned lawyer in America. She and her wealthy husband are the 21st-century version of the couple who has it all: A happy marriage and two successful careers. To top it off, Allison is the highly touted Democratic nominee for the presidency.

Her opponent is Lincoln Howe, a retired four-star army general and bona fide African-American hero. Like Allison, Howe is living the American dream -- but time is running out. For months the candidates have run neck and neck. As the countdown to election day begins, forecasters say the race could be the closest in history. Both sides need just one extra push to swing the election. And on Halloween morning, they get it.

A 12-year-old girl is kidnapped on her way to school. The girl is Kristen Howe, Lincoln Howe's granddaughter.

The nation and the candidates explode in outrage. As attorney general, Allison launches a massive nationwide manhunt. But her motives are under fire, especially from her political opponent, who wants his adversary off the case of his missing granddaughter. Each side claims the other is exploiting the tragedy and manipulating the investigation for political advantage.

In truth Allison's drive to bring Kristen home safe is far more personal than political. Years before, Allison's adopted baby was stolen from her home, never to be found. Now it seems likely that her own child's fate is somehow tied to the current crisis. Allison must step off the political ladder if she is to help save the life of an innocent young girl and unravel the secrets of her own painful past. But that may not be enough. The culprit remains mysteriously out of reach -- linked to the highest office in the land through the lowest act of deceit.

James Grippando "writes with the authenticity of an insider," says John Douglas, former chief of the FBI's Investigative Support Unit and author of MindHunter. In The Abduction Grippando exposes the ultimate election nightmare in which the race for the Oval Office takes a jagged detour of crime, lies and betrayal.
