It sounds like easy money. Fly into Budapest. Handle the exchange in a straightforward kidnap for ransom case. Fly back home.
Total time involved: 48 hours.
But as private security operators Ryan Lock and Ty Johnson are about to find out, there is no such thing as easy money.
Budapest/48 is the new novella (short novel) from bestselling thriller writer Sean Black.
