Overview

Ransom by Danielle Steel, Ron McLarty

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 andbetrayal, 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.

This was my second book by this author. I thought the book was a bit wordy, but I finally finished reading it after a week. I was somewhat disappointed.

The reason this author is so prolific is that her books are becoming very repetitive in the content. She says the same thing over and over with no character building and a predictible plot. Read the first 10 pages of Ransom and the last ten and you have the whole book.

This book was Danielle Steel meets Mary Higgins Clark. If you don't like some mystery you won't enjoy it. It was not boring and very easy to get into. I am a HUGE Danielle Steel fan and although this is very different from most of her other books, it is my favorite thus far!

This book isn't keeping my interest at all. I'll read a chapter or two and then put it down. I'm only half way through it and can't wait until I'm done. The problem is that I can't get excited to pick it up and finnish it.

This story could have been told in about 100 pages or less. This book has way too many words and is quite redundant. It was very predictable from page one and I would not have read page two if I had not paid for the book. Definitely not one of her best works. Perhaps Danielle needs a change of pace or a vacation from writing for now.

This was not one of Danielle's best. It was very wordy and hard to read Did not hold my interest at all. Definite snooze! Skip it and get her newer one coming out. Everyone is entitled to a mistake here and there, especially with the number of books she puts out.

I just read her book and like many other readers, I am a huge fan of Danielle Steel. This book is the greatest and kept me reading till the end!

I don't understand. FBI and police knew that Peter was involved kidnapping, why they did not go after him after Sam got kidnapped. It doesn't make sense at all.
