Renowned crisis and hostage negotiator Eric Beaumont employs insight into human behavior to deal with challenging kidnap and ransom cases, refusing to ever resort to violence, even when faced with the world's most dangerous criminals. While his ability to manipulate sets him above others in his field, it often causes issues in his personal and professional relationships. Beaumont's team includes psych-profiler Oliver Yates, ex-cop Zara Hallam and aspiring investigator Maxine Carlson. "Ransom" is based on the experiences of real-life crisis negotiator Laurent Combalbert and his partner, Marwan Mery.
