The Mysterious Bookshop

McKenzie, Switch

Sam White lives to provide for his family. But everything changes in an instant when he arrives home to find his house burnt to the ground, his family seemingly caught in the blaze. Distraught, Sam receives a phone call from a psychopath informing him that his family was spared from the inferno, but to get them back he must follow the rules set out by their kidnapper. Rules that are anything but simple, anything but legal, and possibly deadly.

As Sam risks everything to find his family, he learns that another man, Zack Parker, had a family previously targeted by the same madman. Together these two desperate men plunge into the dark, labyrinthine underworld of Portland, Oregon in order to save their loves ones before the clock runs out. It's a race against time to discover the identity of the kidnapper and save their families before it's too late.
