Synopsis

The Negotiator My Life at the Heart of the Hostage Trade by Ben Lopez

I'm writing this book under a pseudonym.If I used my real name, I may become a hostage myself. And I don't want that. I've seen what it can do to people. Ben Lopez is a Kidnap-for-Ransom consultant. He spends his days travelling from one crisis zone to the next, negotiating with people who value money over life. On behalf of government agencies, law enforcement teams, multinational corporations and private clients, Ben sets up and commands the negotiator's cell, bartering with some of the world's most desperate people for the safe return of their captives. Working alongside a shadowy team of former spies and special operatives, his arsenal of psychological techniques is just as powerful as brute force. He remains on location for as long as it takes to get the job done. Then he disappears.

About the Author

Ben Lopez was born in New York and spent part of his childhood in Venezuela, where he witnessed first-hand the devastating effects of Kidnap for Ransom (K&R). His work has taken him across the globe, from Mexico to the Middle East. In more than twenty years in the K&R field he has never lost a hostage. Ben Lopez isn't his real name. If he told you it, it would be too dangerous for him to travel to many countries ever again. He lives with his partner in London.
