What would you do for love? Would you die? Would you kill?

“So, we have your wife. You can get her back for 2 million cash.”

Landscape gardener Mitchell Rafferty thinks it must be some kind of a joke. He was busy planting flower beds for one of his clients when his phone rang. Now he’s standing in a normal suburban neighborhood on a bright summer day having a phone conversation out of his darkest nightmare.

Whoever is on the other end of the line is dead serious. “See that guy across the street?” Rifle fire shatters the stillness as the man goes down, shot in the head. “An object lesson.”

The caller doesn’t care that Mitch has no way of raising such a vast sum. He’s confident that Mitch will find a way. If he loves his wife enough.

Mitch does love her enough. He’s got sixty hours to prove it. He’ll pay anything. He’ll pay a lot more. than two million dollars.
