"I have your children.
Don't call the police, or they'll die."


It's a nightmare no parent should ever endure. Especially Alice Glendenning, a South Florida real estate agent who hasn't managed to sell a single home -- or collect any insurance money -- after her husband's fatal boating accident.

To complicate matters, her housekeeper has contacted the police -- a glaring error in judgment that puts a spotlight on the crime, the children's lives at risk...and Alice in jeopardy.
