Stealing People Book Description:

Around the world, the children of the rich are disappearing . . . A chilling thriller starring kidnapping expert Charles Boxer, “a great character” (Kirkus Reviews). Kidnapping expert Charles Boxer is contemplating retirement. He’s found a measure of contentment, even as a mystery from his own past gnaws at his sense of justice. Meanwhile, his ex-wife, Mercy, balances a complicated personal life with an even more precarious professional one in the woefully under-resourced metropolitan police department. But both are suddenly pulled back into action when six children of ultrawealthy families vanish—families from India, China, Russia, Australia, Germany, and the United States—taken by a ruthlessly efficient organization with a single astonishing demand. Trapped, off-balance, and with little left to lose, they plunge into a cauldron of warring intelligence agencies, morally destitute billionaires, and human traffickers, coming finally to a fateful reckoning that will forever change them—in this smart, suspenseful thriller by a Gold Dagger and Gumshoe Award–winning author. “A great character whose emotional trials are exciting to follow.” —Kirkus Reviews
