The enormous sums paid for the release of hostages coupled with law enforcement’s inability to stem the tide has made kidnapping for ransom a worldwide plague. The increasing rate of reported incidents from every corner of the globe suggests this plague is growing. Kidnap for Ransom: Resolving the Unthinkable removes the veil of mystery and dispels some of the myths surrounding kidnapping. The book provides security professionals, families, and law enforcement personnel with the modern tools needed to understand and effectively respond to the crime of kidnapping. This volume traces the historical development of kidnapping for ransom and studies the behaviors of perpetrators, victims, and families. The author makes extensive use of case histories, and includes comments and anecdotes from those who have actually suffered at the hands of kidnappers. Based on his vast experience managing these incidents, the author provides an overview of the series of activities that represent the best opportunity for a successful resolution of a kidnap for ransom scenario. This tried and tested methodology for confronting kidnapping situations enables victims, families, and organizations to have a fighting chance. In addition, the book examines how kidnappers operate and describes the methods they use to select, target and abduct their victims. The work also details preventive measures that an individual can take to avoid becoming a victim, and the strategies that one must apply to survive a kidnapping. This is the first book to examine the kidnap for ransom phenomenon and to reveal the process from the moment of the kidnapping until the victim’s safe return. The author’s experience as the principal consultant and manager in the successful resolution of numerous kidnapping and extortion incidents makes this book an invaluable tool for those charged with the responsibility of kidnap prevention, as well as for those law enforcement agents called on to mitigate the potential consequences of an abduction in progress.

Eine alte Frau, abgemagert bis auf die Knochen, mit mattem weißem Haar. Sechs Kugeln richteten sie hin. Ihre Henker - Kriminelle, die im Auftrag des allmächtigen Paten des Medellín-Kartells handelten. Pablo Escobar ließ 1990 - auf dem Höhepunkt des Machtkampfes mit der Regierung - neun Angehörige einflußreicher Familien und Journalisten kidnappen, um von der kolumbianischen Regie-rung das Auslieferungsverbot für die inhaftierten Drogenbosse an die USA zu erpressen. In 'Nachricht von einer Entführung' hat García Márquez dieses aufse-henerregende Geiseldrama aufgrund von Aussagen der Überlebenden, ihrer Freunde und nächsten Verwandten rekonstruiert. Mit der Stilsicherheit und dem Einfühlungsvermögen des großen Romanciers sowie der scharfen Beobachtungsgabe des Journalisten führt er den Leser an den Schauplatz der Entführung, in die Wohnungen besorgter Freunde und Verwandten und in die Schaltzentralen der Macht. Angst, Verzweiflung, aber auch winzige Hoffnungsschimmer - Gebannt und erschüttert verfolgt man das individuelle Schicksal der Betroffenen und die tragische Situation eines Landes im Fadenkreuz von Gewalt und Gegengewalt.

Annika Bengtzon är tillbaka på Kvällspressens redaktion i Stockholm efter tre år som tidningens korrespondent i Washington. Hon har återförenats med sin make, Thomas, som arbetar på justitiedepartementet med internationella säkerhetsanalyser. En eftermiddag hittas en ung småbarnsmamma död och översnöad bakom ett daghem i förorten Axelsberg i södra Stockholm. Hon är det fjärde offret på kort tid under liknande omständigheter: kvinna, ung, mamma, knivhuggen bakifrån. På Kvällspressen anar man en seriemördare, något Annika avfärdar som vilda fantasier. Thomas befinner sig på en konferens i Nairobi. Under en rekognoseringsresa vid somaliska gränsen kidnappas hela delegationen – sju personer från olika delar av Europa. Allt eftersom kvinnomorden i Stockholms förorter blir allt fler, och misstankarna om en seriemördare börjar ta form även hos polisen, dras Annika in i ett våldsamt kidnappningsdrama som skakar både Europa och Östafrika. Kraven från kidnapparna är omöjliga och orimliga. När kraven avvisas avrättas gisslan i delegationen, en efter en. Du gamla, du fria är en roman om hur den gamla, fria världen bygger järnridåer mot den nya, ofria. Om hur relationer mellan människor rämnar och andra byggs upp. Om hur medierna utnyttjar den nya tekniken till att vrida verkligheten så att den passar deras deadlines. Och om hur ondskan i Stockholms förorter egentligen ser ut... Du gamla du fria är den nionde kriminalromanen om journalisten Annika Bengtzon.

»Ich war um den Hals an einen Baum gekettet, man hatte mir alles genommen und ständig wurde ich gedemütigt – es hat Jahre gedauert, aber schließlich verstand ich, dass ich noch immer das Kostbarste besaß, etwas, das mir niemand nehmen konnte: die Freiheit, zu entscheiden, wer ich selbst war. Ich hatte die Wahl, zu hassen oder nicht zu hassen. Ich war kein Opfer mehr, ich war eine Überlebende.«
