Ransomed: A Jake and Shannon Blue Novel

My Baby is Gone!

Life went awry for Jake and Shannon Blue of Madison, Kentucky when kidnappers stole their infant son. What was not immediately apparent to the Blues or law enforcement agencies was that ISIS instigated the crime. Eventually, they learned that ISIS was holding Baby Jacob in Aleppo, Syria.
ISIS propagandists in Paris worked rapidly to brainwash Shannon and force her to pledge allegiance to Mohammed. But her captors hit a brick wall with Shannon who is not only an accomplished attorney but also a well-discipled Christian.
Primarily because of Shannon’s notoriety, the kidnapping of Baby Jacob rivaled the coverage of the Lindbergh baby kidnapping nearly eighty years previous. The world’s media locked into the story and kept it at the forefront of their newspapers and broadcasts.
