Price of Life
Penguin Group Australia, Jun 27, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 480 pages
August 2008, Bundaberg photojournalist Nigel Brennan travels to Somalia with Canadian reporter Amanda Lindhout. They are abducted by a criminal gang, brutalised, and kept in isolation and ignorance. The ransom amount is US$3 million; if it's not paid, they will be killed. And the Australian government does not pay ransoms.
This is the story of an ordinary Australian family discovering what they're capable of and how far they're prepared to go for what they believe in. Life. Freedom. Whatever the price.
