Not even very interesting
I can't even begin to tell you my disappointment on this one. I was pleasantly surprised by Jordan's Taken, and was really looking forward to reading this one. Big mistake. In a review for 'Taken', I mentioned that the first half was the best I'd ever read. That made me look forward to this one. I didn't like most of the characters. I really did not like the plot and how it played out. I struggled to finish this book. Based on 'Taken' by this author, I would consider reading another book, but I wouldn't rush out to buy it and after reading it, if not enjoying, I would banish this author's works from my library. I certainly would not recommend this book. ...

Sorry, not a new author for me.
This book is a ridiculous interpretation of a child missing. The book seems forced along, not an easy read. The mother and retired FBI guy are the only ones trying to find her? Hello, the policemen would have, at the very least, taken the girl's computer. But we're made to believe it's the mom and Mr. Shane who cracked into her computer. It doesn't get any better from there. I couldn't finish it. I think the book IDEA was great, but writing style was so jerk-y, with no good flow. Switching from first-person, third-person, over and over again did not help.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
