Writing Prompt #13 - Unsolved
 
The mayor of a major city just gets re-elected. While on the way to her victory celebration, masked kidnappers ambush her motorcade. They’re pros and manage to make off with the mayor before police backup can arrive. She’s drugged and wakes up in a chair with a hood over head.

One of the kidnappers make their single demand directly to the mayor: to solve a murder case that was closed by the police two days ago. A double homicide. A boy and his mother. The kidnappers want the case solved in 72 hours. If it’s not, folks in City Hall will start dying. They ignore the mayor’s questions and tip SWAT off to her whereabouts.

What happens next?
