Jake Landry is a junior executive at the Hammond Aerospace Corporation, a steady, modest, and taciturn guy with a gift for keeping his head downand a turbulent past he prays hes put behind him. Ordered to fill in for his boss at the annual offsite, hes out of his element. Hes uncomfortable with the lavish accommodations and especially with the arrogant, swaggering men who run the company and the only person he knows there is the new special assistant to the CEOwho happens to be Jakes ex.
Then a band of hunters, apparently lost in the woods, crash the opening-night festivities. Soon the execs of a billion-dollar company, cut off from the rest of the world, find themselves at the mercy of a group of men with guns...and a cunning plan to take Hammond Aerospace for all its worth.
But the hostage takers arent who they appear to be and neither is Jake Landry. The high flyers hadnt wanted Jake to come along. Now hes the only one who can save them.
