A KIND OF KIDNAPPING is the story of 30-something couple Maggie and Brian, both struggling to get by, they decide to kidnap London politician, Richard Hardy. Sadly no one wants to pay the ransom but just before they let Hardy go he offers them the money himself, as long as they continue to keep him hostage. Why? Well, he’s never had better PR than this and he believes the sympathy vote will help with his campaign to one day become Prime Minister. What follows is a series of lies, double-crossing and even murder, in this taught, darkly comic thriller.
