Product description

All the gasping horror of a gun held to your head, by the In Darkness genius. Brutal, terrifying, real: the price of a life seen down the barrel of an AK-47. The peaceful sea, the warm sun: it’s a once-in-a-lifetime trip for Amy. A girl on a yacht with her super-rich father. A chance for the family to heal after a turbulent time. Except that a nightmare is about to explode. When ruthless Somali pirates seize the boat and its human cargo, the family are only worth what the pirates can get for them. Hostage One is Dad: the most valuable. His wife is Hostage Two. Amy – last and least – is Hostage Three…
