Ransom Theft Love is a mystery/thriller book that revolves around the journey of Dr. Anne Wadsworth. The lady doctor has been taking tourists to the vast plains of Africa for years. She not only adores the landscape, but she also views Africa as her second home.

Anne is kidnapped by unknown intruders and held captive while they journey from Zanzibar to Somalia.

She has little chance to defend herself, so she finds comfort in stargazing with her Sudanese guardian every night. After learning the terrifying reality, Anne recognizes that it is no longer about her.
