Summary
On January 21, 1998, federal prosecutor Stanley Alpert was kidnapped off the streets of Manhattan by a carful of thugs looking to use his ATM card, but when they learned his bank balance, the plan changed. They took him, blindfolded, to a Brooklyn apartment. But the later it got, the more the plan changed, as his captors held guns to his head, threatened his family, engaged him in discussions of gangsta philosophy, or sought his legal advice. All the while, Alpert, still blindfolded, played on their attitudes and fears, tried to figure out where their mood swings would take them next, and memorized every detail he could in the event he ever managed to get out of there alive. Meanwhile, his friends and law enforcement colleagues launched a major investigation. It, too, would take many twists and turns before it was done--and some of them would be strange indeed.--From publisher description
