Description

A Kirkus Reviews Best Fiction Selection for 2012 Four friends, recent college graduates, caught in a terrible job market, joke about turning to kidnapping to survive. And then, suddenly, it's no joke. For two years, the strategy they devise-quick, efficient, low risk-works like a charm. Until they kidnap the wrong man.

Now two groups they've very much wanted to avoid are after them-the law, in the form of veteran state investigator Kirk Stevens and hotshot young FBI agent Carla Windermere, and an organized-crime outfit looking for payback. As they all crisscross the country in deadly pursuit and a series of increasingly explosive confrontations, each of them is ultimately forced to recognize the truth: The true professionals, cop or criminal, are those who are willing to sacrifice . . . everything.

A finger-burning page-turner, filled with twists, surprises, and memorably complex characters, The Professionals marks the arrival of a remarkable new writer.

display_descriptionKirkus Reviews calls this pulse-pounding tale by Owen Laukkanen a "fast-moving debut thriller with enough twists to fill a pretzel bag." Strapped for cash, four recent college grads decide to end their monetary woes by kidnapping a few rich businessmen. No one is supposed to get greedy, and no one is supposed to get hurt. But the situation spirals out of control when the FBI gets wise to their plans and one of their victims ends up having connections to the mob.
