Alan Cope wants to be kidnapped.
He wants to be kidnapped because it might help him understand his older brother, Roger Cope.
Roger Cope is not easy to understand. At 21 years of age, he suffers from chronic anxiety, random paralysis and hallucinations. He wants to win the affection of his psychotherapist and protect Alan at any cost. But with his luck, it's not long before Alan is kidnapped.
Alan's captors believe that he is the key to producing eternal youth. Among them Alan finds his abusive mother, who is legally dead, and the man who imprisoned Alan's brother. Alan risks these encounters for a chance to decipher Roger. But doing so pushes Alan towards a secret of his own past, one that could ruin both him and his fragile minded brother.
Concealing this secret dismantles Alan's psyche until everyone, including Alan himself, is asking the same question:
Where is Alan Cope?
