Aaron Greene is barely a year out of high school when he disappears on his way to work at a powerful Atlanta bank. The kidnappers demand ten million dollars, with one condition: the money must come from the bank, not Aaron's parents. But the bank refuses to pay. Suddenly Aaron's case is at the center of a storm of outrage that sweeps the nation -- while the shy young mailroom boy waits in an environment he never would have expected, guarded by people who care nothing for his ransom money.
