Night Drop by Michael W. ShererWhat would you do to save someone you love?

More than a year after Blake Sanders’s life fell apart he’s finally starting to pick up the pieces and put it all back together. When his ex-wife Molly is abducted, he vows not to lose her, too. Her high-profile law firm calls in the FBI, which treats the case as a run-of-the-mill kidnap-for-ransom. But to Blake, it’s personal. When the kidnappers demand that he deliver the ransom, he knows it is.

With Molly’s life hanging in the balance, Blake does the unexpected, setting off a chain reaction and a game of cat-and-mouse with the mastermind behind the abduction. The deeper Blake digs for answers, the more apparent it becomes that money is lowest on the kidnappers’ list of demands.

One of Molly’s clients is an ex-Navy SEAL, an expert dolphin trainer turned animal rights activist. When he disappears the stakes suddenly go up, and Blake asks naval intelligence officer Reyna Chase for help. As soon as Reyna gets wind of what’s happening, the game changes from saving Molly to saving Seattle from a terrorist threat that could wreak havoc on the city and kill thousands. The only way Blake can stop it is to pay the ransom—not with cash, but with his life.

By the author of the Thriller Award-nominated Night Blind, Sherer’s third book in the Blake Sanders series grabs the reader by the throat and doesn’t let go until the last page is turned.

NIGHT DROP is available from Amazon.
