The Three-Day Affairby Michael Kardos

They are life long friends. Their lives are routine, even boring. But that is about to change.

Will, Jeffrey and Nolan have been friends since college. Their lives are normal, even boring. Until one shocking moment changes everything.

One night, in a moment of madness, Jeffrey robs a convenience store and drags the only witness into Will's car. Before they know it, Will, Jeffrey and Nolan are holding a young girl hostage, with no idea what to do next. They have three days to decide her fate. Three days to choose between right and wrong, prison and freedom. Three days to manipulate each other into a unanimous decision.

These ordinary men are already guilty of abduction and robbery. What else are they capable of?
