Book Description

Feb 2004 Steel, Danielle
A violent crime brings together four lives in Danielle Steel’s sixtieth bestselling novel, the story of a mother’s courage, a family’s terror, and a triumph of human strength and dignity in the face of overwhelming odds.

Outside the gates of a California prison, Peter Morgan is released after four long years and vows to redeem himself in the eyes of the young daughters he left behind. Simultaneously, Carl Waters, a convicted murderer, is set on the path of freedom with him. That night, three hundred miles south in San Francisco, police detective Ted Lee comes home to a silent house; for twenty-nine years, he has been living for his job—and slowly falling out of love with his wife. Across town, in an exclusive Pacific Heights neighborhood, a mother tries to shield her three children from the panic rising within her. Four months after her husband’s death, Fernanda Barnes faces a mountain of debt she cannot repay, a world destroyed, and a marriage lost.

Within weeks, the lives of these four people will collide in ways none of them could have foreseen. For Fernanda, whose life had once been graced by beautiful homes, security, success, and stunning wealth, the death of her brilliant, brooding husband was already too much to bear. She simply couldn’t imagine a greater loss, until a devastating crime rocks her family to its core—and brings Detective Ted Lee into her life.
A man of unshakable integrity, Lee will soon become the one person who tries to save Fernanda’s family from a terrifying fate. Fernanda must draw on a strength she never knew she had. Racing against time in the underbelly of the criminal world, buffeted by the dark side of power, and unmoored by loss and betrayal, no one can predict where this tragedy will take them.

Danielle Steel brilliantly explores the collision of a shocking crime with the ordinary lives of its victims in a novel that mesmerizes from start to finish. Ransom is at once a riveting evocation of life’s inexplicable turns of fate and a testament to the human will to survive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another brilliant book 17 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love Danielle Steel stories and have read this one before. However it was a long while ago and I had forgotten most of the story line. Like all of Danielle's books, this was another one that was hard to put down once you started it. The character descriptions made you feel part of the story.....and I am always a soft touch for a happy ending!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Different to the rest! 1 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
when I started to read this I had to keep checking it was a Danielle Steel book. so different to any of her others. This is more the type of book my husband reads, more cops and robbers. in fact I am going to get him to read it. very different although you knew how it would end. I was just hoping I wasn't wrong as you start to feel for the characters and want the best for them. Great book, highly recommend!
