The Abduction


THE ABDUCTION is the follow up to The Scribe and sees the return of bright, tenacious lawyer, Madeline Kramer, who has finally got her life back on track at top City law firm Sullivan, Blake, Monroe. But when two armed, masked men burst into a conference room one lunchtime, kidnapping inept trainee, Charlotte Dempsey, and popular head of litigation, Richard Barker, Maddy’s life is plunged into disarray once more, particularly when charismatic DCI Jake Carver, who caught a brutal killer when they last met, and with whom Maddy shared a mutual chemistry, is called to the scene.

Things become more complicated when a disturbing video reveals two more trainees have been taken. What initially appears as a random kidnapping for mercenary gain soon evolves into something far more complex, the horrifying events of thirty years ago motivating the abductors and having colossal implications for those in the present.

Against a backdrop of sleaze, sex, lies and murder, Maddy and Carver must work together to unravel the truth, and ensure that no crimes, past or present, are left unpunished.
