Product Description

Product Description

Captured by terrorists, kept in solitary confinement, guarded by men with AK47s and little respect for life.

Could you survive it?

Bundaberg photojournalist Nigel Brennan travels to Somalia with Canadian reporter Amanda Lindhout.  They are abducted by a criminal gang, that puts a price of US$3 million on their heads.  If it's not paid, they will be killed.  And the Australian government does not pay ransoms.

After more than a year of stalled negotiations, Nigel's family takes matters into their own hands.  They go against government advice, scarifying their livelihoods, their houses and personal lives to bring the hostages home.  Meanwhile, the kidnappers are losing patience.  Brutalised, shackled, not knowing when or how the situation will end, Nigel faces the fight of his life.

This is a story about what it takes to survive, and how far a family will go for freedom, whatever the price.

Read this right after Amanda's House in the Sky which was in itself a master-piece. "Price of Life" provides a unique perspective of the rescue and Nigel's account of the events. Mesmerizing saga- both books are a must read!

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring March 19 2014
By Pam
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had read the other half of the story so looked forward to this half. Unfortunately, it was a really boring book. I found myself skipping pages looking for the parts where Nigel was the story, not his family, I really had no interest in whatever his sisters were doing with the press, blah blah blah. I would not recommend this book

2.0 out of 5 stars read a House in the Sky instead! March 16 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not very well written.
Too many acronyms and people mentioned without an explanation of who they are.
The last few chapters dragged on and on. Too much unnecessary detail.

I have read "House in the Sky", Amanda Lindhout's account also - the story of their ordeal is nothing less than compelling!! I liked that this book was written from the experience of Nigel, Kellie and Nicky! Thanks for sharing a most remarkable story! You are ALL so brave!
