Cold-blooded politics, naked power, and raw terror behind the scenes. Murder in New York, terror in South America, bloody riots in Eastern Europe. That's the evening news as calmly reported by top TV anchorman Crawford Sloane. . .until his own life is torn apart in one dramatic moment. For when terrorists snatch his family, no one knows better than Sloane how slim are the chances of getting them back alive. Now their fate depends on Sloane's rival, ace reporter Harry Partridge; on a beautiful and ruthless network CEO, and on Sloane's determination to track the kidnappers down--from New York to Columbia to the Peruvian Andes and a final heart-stopping climax of danger and death.
