Johnny Love was forbidden inside my home. As a child, I did not understand why my mother seemed to take pleasure in watching me suffer. I spent years searching for love. It was one thing I would trade my life for, and I relentlessly laid my heart on the line, causing myself even more pain. Another chapter of my life had unfolded, but it was still riddled with torment that did not seem to end. But despite everything, I accept each test that life gives me, knowing that even when the world turns away from me, God never will.
Johnny Billy Mack’s niece, Layla, disappears on her 16th birthday and her brazen abduction is caught on camera - intentionally. Her ransom demand is highly suspicious. Billy must deliver $3 million to a dubious location and wait for further instructions. If he obeys the kidnappers’ demands, he plays a game of Russian roulette with five bullets in the six-shooter. He has one chance to rescue Layla or she vanishes, forced back into her hellish former life. Billy has no choice but to infiltrate a world where human life has no value. He is out-manned, out-gunned and dealing with the kidnappers on their home turf – the seedy slums of Barcelona, where no tourist dares to enter. He must outfox both a vindictive, evil woman and her unstable, volatile son who is determined to keep Layla as his playmate. To rescue Layla, Billy must teeter on the edge of hell and pray his guardian angel still has his back.
