Wow! Eight years ago reporter Scott Fleetwood was interjected into the case of the serial kidnapper called the Piper. At the time, Scott thinks he is dealing with that person, but instead, he and the FBI are fooled by a wannabe. The confusion leads to the real Piper taking his first life, that of the only child of wealthy real estate mogul Charles Rooker. Now the Piper is back and wants revenge. To start, he has kidnapped one of Fleetwood’s twin sons, and demanded $2 million ransom. But is it really money he wants, or Fleetwood’s help in tracking down the man whose imitation created the earlier problems. Its every parent’s nightmare and it affects everyone, Fleetwood, the FBI agent who was originally on the case, Rooker, the wannabe Piper, and of course the Piper himself. Hard to believe this is Wood’s sophomore effort. Delightfully twisty and an amazing climax.
