Synopsis
A Kirkus Reviews Best Fiction Selection for 2012 Four friends, recent college graduates, caught in a terrible job market, joke about turning to kidnapping to survive. And then, suddenly, it's no joke. For two years, the strategy they devise-quick, efficient, low risk-works like a charm. Until they kidnap the wrong man. Now two groups they've very much wanted to avoid are after them-the law, in the form of veteran state investigator Kirk Stevens and hotshot young FBI agent Carla Windermere, and an organized-crime outfit looking for payback. As they all crisscross the country in deadly pursuit and a series of increasingly explosive confrontations, each of them is ultimately forced to recognize the truth: The true professionals, cop or criminal, are those who are willing to sacrifice . . . everything. A finger-burning page-turner, filled with twists, surprises, and memorably complex characters, The Professionals marks the arrival of a remarkable new writer.

Four friends, recent college graduates caught in a terrible job market, joke about turning to kidnapping to survive. And then, suddenly, it's no joke. For two years, the strategy works like a charm - until they kidnap the wrong man. Now, two groups they've very much wanted to avoid are onto them: the law and an organised crime outfit out for revenge. They crisscross the country in deadly pursuit and after a series of increasingly explosive confrontations, each of them must face the truth: the real professionals, are those willing to sacrifice.

Reviews
" The Professionals grips you on page one and doesn't let go until the last, satisfying page. Laukkanen provides plenty of twists along the way while developing a well-juggled array of complex and evolving characters. Highly recommended." --Alafair Burke, author of Long Gone

" The Professionals is a high-octane adrenaline and gunpowder-fueled rocket ride across the country from Seattle to Miami to Detroit and points in-between. What is remarkable about Owen Laukkanen's debut is how skillfully he makes the reader care for his characters on both sides of the law. An excellent first novel!" -C. J. Box

"A coiling plot, insightful characters, and a tale fraught with danger. What more could any thriller reader want? The Professionals has it all. It's top-notch entertainment." --Steve Berry

"A page-turning blend of classic suspense fiction and chillingly postmodern amorality. Ingenious plotting, perfect-pitch characterization and evocative sense of place combine to create an impressive debut." -Jonathan Kellerman

"A spectacular debut novel written with intelligence, toughness, and heart. Owen Laukkanen is a writer to watch." --Thomas Perry, author of T he Butcher's Boy and The Informant

"Fasten your seat belts, Owen Laukkanen's The Professionals is one heck of a wild ride. A first-class thriller by a terrific new voice."--John Lescroart

"Really terrific - characters that live and breathe, a just-right story, and chills aplenty. Highly recommended." --Lee Child

"Really terrific characters that live and breathe, a just-right story, and chills aplenty. Highly recommended." -Lee Child

"Smoothly written, with a slam-bang ending, The Professionals is a brutally beautiful piece of work. Owen Laukkanen takes us straight into the hearts of the bad guys, and what we find there is something very complicated and still very bad. The cops are just as complex as the villains, and Laukkanen nicely captures the personal and sexual tension between Kirk Stevens and Carla Windermere as they track down the gang: this is a pairing that will wear well." -John Sandford
