This book chronicles the random abduction of the author then a federal prosecutor his nearly 24 hours with the men who abducted him and tried to steal his money and the subseuent investigation and arrests of those men The book is riveting particularly in the first half when Alpert is with his captors and seemingly told with all realism The second half during the investigation dragged a bit Alpert tells the story with a lawyer s thoroughness and attention to detail sometimes forgetting which details are actually relevant and interesting and which are just details At times I was a little bit troubled by Alpert s self analysis I imagine it s difficult to write this kind of book and not be a little bit self aggrandizing but overall I thought his was a candid and captivating account

    This is a kind of book I'd normally never pick up a first person account by a New York federal prosecutor who was kidnapped by some low level Brooklyn pimps and thugs who wanted to use his ATM and credit cards He survived and this is the story of his kidnapping and then the police investigation As I said it's not something I would normally pick up but my husband had met the author on a tour of Jewish environmen
