The Eighth Ransom

by Given Hoffman View author's profile page

Overview
When Trent Soris is kidnapped with seven others, he's the only one without a ransom. He must either escape or find a way to make himself important to their kidnappers, otherwise he may be the only one not going home.
Description
Trent Soris is an artist with a chip on his shoulder, and Ashley Rye is what Trent would describe as an annoying religious kid. When they're kidnapped with six others from across the U.S., they have nothing in common but their enemy. To survive, all eight of them will have to depend on each other. By working together, they just might prevent their ransoms from being used in an international plot that captures the attention of even the National Counterterrorism Center. But when lies test their fragile unity and even the truth holds unexpected secrets, their strengths may not be enough to save them and everyone else at risk.
