A serial kidnapper known as the Piper spent years snatching children from San Francisco’s wealthiest families. When crime reporter Scott Fleetwood got himself involved in one of the cases, the Piper went from kidnapper to murderer…and vanished.
Now, after Fleetwood has languished under crippling guilt and public scorn for eight years, the Piper emerges from hiding to kidnap Fleetwood’s son. He’s demanding $2 million, but it’s not really about the money: the Piper wants blood - and he’s going to use Fleetwood to get it.
In the pulse-pounding tradition of Harlan Coben and Gregg Hurwitz, Simon Wood hangs listeners on hooks of suspense and action, leaving them white-knuckled until the bloody, bitter end.

Time to pay the piper
This book was so good. I had full intentions of giving it five stars up until the last two hours. Don't get me wrong, the author really knows how to put twists and turns in a story. It was a very clever story. But it seemed to take too long to execute each movement. It could've been shorter. All in all it was still worth reading/ listening to. I love this author's work. I plan on reading/ listening to all his books. Scott's wife was so annoying, and at times, so was Scott. I think this was mainly due to the narrator. He was pretty good with the story and most characters but a few of them sounded the same and the voice for the women sounded too whiny. I know that sounds too negative but there was so much more positive to the story that it is worth the read/listen.
