|Plot Summary of The Wrong Hostage|
Judge Grace Silva got a cryptic call from her son's private boarding school telling her to come to the school right away. Grace rushed immediately to the school fearing her son, Lane, was in trouble. Upon arriving there, she met Mexico's most corrupt and wanted druglord, Hector Rivas, telling her that she needed to present to them her ex-husband, Ted Franklin in exchange for her son. He told her that Ted stole money from him and if she couldn't get the money back from Ted in two days, they would kill her hostaged son. Grace was at a loss on how to contact her ex-husband and two days were not enough to procure the 150 millions dollars Ted owed Hector. Desperate she contacted her ex-lover, Joe Faroe, a kidnap specialist from the St. Kilda Consulting firm. Although they parted bitterly 14 years ago, Grace knew that Joe was the only person who could get Lane back. Joe agreed in helping Grace and both of them got entangled inside the world of corrupt politicians, wealthy druglords and catholic spies. Manipulating Hector's enemies and the FBIs, they kept ahead of everyone and one step closer in saving Lane. Grace, who always upheld the law, was forced to compromise the law in order to save her son. Joe, who still had feelings for Grace, was furious and stunned when Grace confided to him that Lane was actually his biological son. In spite of the anger and hurt at her betrayal, Joe wanted to save Lane so that they could have a chance at being a family.
