The Auction by Justin Scott

The most influential and least-known man in history - who deals in governments, trades in empires and holds the key to world power - has been taken hostage...The kidnapper forces multi-national companies and presidents into an auction, within which they must bid for the captive's release - before markets collapse and nations fall. Ending the bidding is Pete Chamberlain's job. His assignment is to find the captive - and soon. Only the ruthless kidnappers, the Russians and the CIA stand in his way.
