24 Hours by Greg Iles
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
When Will Jennings heads to Biloxi for a medical convention he has no idea what a nightmare his life is fixing to become. Blaming Will for his Mother's death Joe Hickey kidnaps Will's daughter Abby. Joe has devised the perfect crime that has worked 5 times in the past. Abby is left with his retarded cousin Huey, while Joe holds Karen (Will's wife) hostage and Joe's wife Cheryl is with Will to ensure his cooperation.
Then Joe's plan begins to unravel. When Joe starts to rape Karen she attacks him with a scalpel, Will manages to get Cheryl on his side and Huey becomes Abby's protector. A desperate plane ride gets Will to Abby before Joe Hickey but will all their sacrifices be for nothing.
