The Three-Day Affair

by Michael Kardos

Will, Jeffrey, and Nolan have been friends since their undergrad days at Princeton. Now, nine years after graduation, Will is a failed musician still reeling from the death of a band mate. Jeffrey got lucky and then rich from the dot-com boom, and Nolan is a state senator with national aspirations. Their friendships have bent without breaking for years, until one shocking event changes everything.
One night on a drive, they make a routine stop at a convenience store. Moments after entering the store, a manic Jeffrey emerges, dragging a young woman with him. He shoves her into Will’s car and shouts a single word: “Drive!” Shaken and confused, Will obeys.
Suddenly these three men find themselves completely out of their element, holding a frightened young girl hostage without the slightest idea of what to do next. They’re already guilty of kidnapping and robbery; it’s only a matter of time before they find out what else they might be guilty of. For these three friends, three days will decide their fate–between freedom and prison, innocence and guilt . . . and life and death.
The Three-Day Affair marks the emergence of an electrifying new voice in crime fiction.
My Thoughts…

I must admit when I first started reading this I began to think it pretty lame and really didn’t want to finish.  But, as I progressed and things started falling together it became quite interesting in some respects.  In other respects I would give The Three Day Affair three stars just because, realistically, I don’t know of too many people that would actually go through with the plan of action portrayed in this novel, the kidnapping, robbery-gone-bad scenario all for financial gain, but you never know what people will do for money.  It may be better left for a made-for-TV movie.  At three stars it was still somewhat entertaining.
