From the author of the Simon & Elizabeth Mysteries and the Loser Mysteries comes a fun and suspenseful chase story that asks the question: What if someone who’s had all she can take from crooks fights, taking on one bad apple at a time?
Robin Parsons is replaced at her law firm job, and though her bosses call it a layoff, she knows they’re making room for a rich client’s kid. While she’s still fuming about that, her odd but gorgeous neighbor calls to report that after a confrontation in a parking lot, he’s got a corrupt politician in the trunk of his car. He wants to know what he should do now.
So begins a caper novel that delves into an idea we’ve all had: What if we had the power to teach the crooks of the world a lesson? In a story that’s entertaining and satisfying, we grow to love Robin and the band of misfits who join her crusade for justice. Cam, a guy with developmental issues. Em, elderly but not done fighting crime yet. And Hua, determined to be a force for good in the world. Yeah, they’re vigilantes, but they’re the nicest kind you can imagine.
The Kidnap Gang takes on cheats of many kinds: a dishonest TV evangelist, a judge who uses her position for lascivious purposes, and politicians who leverage the power of their offices to make themselves rich and even more powerful.
Soon there are hints the gang isn’t as secret as they’d like to be, and that causes Robin to have attacks of conscience both mental and physical. The others look to her as their leader, but is she leading her friends into prison? Into danger? Can they escape retribution from their victims? Can they evade arrest and imprisonment? Can they deflect and deter the gray-eyed private investigator who shows up everywhere they go? It’s enough to make a girl pass out—but Robin can’t let that happen until the work is done.
The Kidnap Capers is a 3-book series, so once readers get to know the Kidnap Gang, they can follow more of their adventures.
