In this fast-paced political thriller, bestselling author James Grippando exposes the ultimate election nightmare. Filled with electrifying suspense, The Abduction delivers the edge-of-your-seat excitement Grippando fans have come to expect. Allison Leahy is the U.S. attorney general and the highly touted Democratic presidential nominee. She is running neck and neck with her opponent, Lincoln Howe, a prestigious African-American and former general, when his granddaughter is kidnapped. Allison's motives for finding the girl become more personal than political, especially since her own baby daughter was taken years ago, and now it seems likely there is some connection between the two abductions. A former trial lawyer, Grippando is known for his insider's knowledge of Capitol Hill politics and the workings of government agencies. With his involving narrative style, Paul Hecht captures the fine sense of tension and authenticity Grippando so skillfully portrays.
