Kidnapped is a fast paced story of murder, politics, history and friendship. It follows the travels of the young David Balfour, as he travels from his home village to the outskirts of Edinburgh to meet his uncle, and start to make his way in life. His uncle, however, betrays him and David is taken forcibly aboard a brig bound for the Carolina’s and a life of slavery. His luck changes when he meets Alan Breck Stewart, a Jacobite hunted by King George’s troops, who’s boat they hit on the voyage. Alan and David fight their way free in the teeth of a raging storm and end up deposited alive but separated on the West coast of Scotland. They then begin to make their way back to the city of Edinburgh to clear their names. This is no easy journey, as they play a dangerous game of cat and mouse with the English troops searching for them. Eventually they make it back to the city, where they meet trusted allies and right the wrongs that brought them together.
