The AbductionBook - 1998
U.S. Attorney General and Democratic presidential candidate Allison Leahy finds her campaign threatened by the return of a vengeful former lover, a situation complicated when her opponent, African American ex-Army general Lincoln Howe, is faced with the kidnapping of his young granddaughter.
U.S. Attorney General Allison Leahy is the Democrats' best chance for holding on to the Oval Office. But she's running neck and neck with her opponent, Republican Lincoln Howe, a retired four-star general and bona fide African-American hero. Then, days before the election, disaster strikes. Twelve-year-old Kristen Howe, the general's granddaughter, is kidnapped. As the nation's leading law enforcement officer, Allison launches a nationwide manhunt—even as her opponent publicly questions her motives. For Allison, though, finding Kristen isn't about politics. It's a personal crusade that taps into terrifying secrets buried deep within the past—secrets that can shatter all of Allison's hopes, twisting them into a nightmare of lies and the ultimate betrayal.
