In this follow-up to Church's bestselling Alibi Aficionado, a school bus with 54 student passengers is hijacked. Fresh off the success of a recent investigative victory, Edwin Burrows, CPA, seems like the least likely investigator to solve the case and bring the student hostages home. But his accounting firm isn't looking for the kids. Rather, the partners want to know whether their struggling client -- the bus company's owner -- was involved in the hijacking in the first place, through some twisted blackmail scheme that only an accountant could figure out by scrutinizing the client's financial statements. Boring!When the hijackers promise violence unless $50k per hostage is paid, pressure mounts for Edwin. Trading in the reams of paperwork in favor of real-life investigative work, Edwin races against time before any child will suffer the wild and reckless kidnappers' wrath.Will he save the frightened children before it's too late? Will the firm approve of his shift in focus? Find out in Harvey Church's Blackmail Broker!
