The kidnapping of Susie Q is about a teenage girl named Susie Quinn who lives in Northern Ireland. Susie, who is lovingly called Susie Q by her family, lives with her mother, an elected member of the local council and a teacher, and her younger brother Davy. Susie’s sister Ruth also lives with the family when she is not away at college. Ruth is a hard working English major at Queens, a university in Belfast. Susie’s father has been dead for a few years, and the family lives a simple lifestyle without his financial support.
