When the granddaughter of the wealthy Sachs-Smith family is kidnapped, Louise Rick's skills as a trained negotiator are put to work. She is tasked with helping the desperate mother negotiate what soon turns into a life-or-death situation. The kidnappers will only exchange the deathly ill little girl for an infamous stained-glass panel—known as the Angel of Death—that has been in the family for generations. The big problem is that the Angel, worth millions, was recently stolen from the family home. Racing against the clock as she matches wits with a criminal mastermind, Louise's sixth outing (following The Running Girl) will take her to the depths of human depravity. But will she be able to find the little girl before time runs out?
