I love it when I come across a lesser known book or one I've never heard of, and it turns out to be a very good read. That's what 'The Kidnapping of Aaron Greene' is. I had a hard time putting this one down. Obviously, the theme and overlying question of the story is 'What is a 'nobody' worth?' And that in itself leads to a very good and suspenseful story. But I was impressed also with the way Terry Kay incorporated other dynamics of human life into the story as well. He addresses friendship, love, and even hate. Not only does the reader get to see that through the characters, he/she gets to feel it. I mean, who wouldn't feel like taking a sledgehammer to Katie Harris' microphone? And who couldn't feel good about the type of friendship Yates and Menotti have; or the one with Carla and Aaron; or how about Cody and Millie? Throw in some humorous moments, and Kay does a good job of writing a complete story full of suspense, excitement, and feeling. All of the storylines are interesting, and they all come together in a wonderful, yet unexpected conclusion. This was the first Terry Kay novel that I've read, and it most certainly won't be the last.

My husband and I read this book together and we both have recomended it any time someone asks for a new book. It is gripping and keeps your attention from the beggining.

Terry Kay leaves his usual rural settings for an urban mystery. The book asks the question: What would happen if a 'nobody' was kidnapped and held for ransom? Kay does a masterful job of developing his characters, and the plot twists are intelligent. Very creative story from one of America's best authors.
