The Abduction is a very exciting book and full of suspense. Originally published in 1998 it is most timely today. I checked Amazon and read the Publisher’s Weekly review printed at the time of publication. The book did not get a very good review. Maybe because no one could imagine a hot race for the office of President of the United States between a black man with a military background and a successful woman except in fiction.

Allison Leahy is Attorney General of the United States. Allison is currently in a campaign to be elected President of the United States. Her opponent General Lincoln Howe is a black candidate running a close race with Allison. Both sides are looking for an edge.

Howe thinks he has found it when he asks a question about adultery in a debate and Allison refuses to answer based on her principles and the thought that the question was entirely out of line. But the campaign really heats up when General Howe’s granddaughter is kidnapped. Allison is reminded of the fact that Emily, her baby daughter, was kidnapped while she was at home talking on the phone. This was year’s ago and although Allison did everything within her power she was never able to locate her daughter. She is now determined that as Attorney General she will do everything within her power to bring the General’s granddaughter home safely.

Campaign managers on both sides are fighting to gain the lead. Political tactics of the lowest kind are played out in The Abduction.

If you missed out when this book was first published grab it now.
