As a daughter of an FBI agent, Katie knows the basics of child abduction prevention: don’t talk to strangers, don’t get into a car with anyone you don’t know, and don’t piss off Midas. But Dad broke the last rule, and now Katie is left to pay for it.
Just days after her fifteenth birthday, Katie is taken by Midas, the most elusive and efficient kidnapper the FBI has ever seen. None of Midas’s victims have ever been found dead or alive, and it does not take long for Katie to find out why. Midas dumps Katie into a compound filled with his other ‘trophies,’ children he has kidnapped, ransomed, and abandoned to the elements. The thin green armband around Katie’s wrist separates her from the other kids, marking her as valuable, but once Midas is through extorting Katie’s father, she will become as expendable as the others. Katie now has to choose whether to merely survive or risk her life trying to escape.
