The carefree existence of narrator Kofi, the year-old son of a West African Ashanti chief, is shattered when the family's slave sells him to a slave trader in Recaptured after a brief escape.

When a wealthy English man-about-town attempts to make advances to the beautiful twenty-year-old debutante Caroline Martin, she haughtily refuses him, thus assuring a remorseless series of punishments. As revenge, the wealthy man orders Caroline's abduction by the members of a white slavery ring who cater to the perverted desires of the aristocracy.

"The Captive" may appear to bite off a little more than it can chew but it's one of the most satisfyingly baroque thrillers of the year, and thanks to a perfectly judged performance by Ryan.
