Overview

A child has been kidnapped. His father, Evan Kiley, a reporter on the local newspaper in this small Australian city, telephones the home of the Wintons. They are a well-to-do family whose small daughter had been abducted - and returned - a year or so earlier. The Wintons had paid the ransom demanded without calling in the police. Because he cooperated with the criminals, Kiley accuses Winton of complicity in their crime. The men who took Robin Kiley, just a toddler, followed the same pattern as that of the earlier kidnapping of Winton's little girl. Had Winton notified the authorities, the criminals would have been caught and Robin would have been spared, Kiley says. Winton feels guilty and sorry for Kiley so he agrees to help him in his time of need. Gradually, the two men are drawn together in a plot to thwart the kidnappers and to get Robin Kiley back. But something goes wrong and a murder is committed.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When someone snatches his 15-month-old son for ransom and leaves the sitter dead, journalist Evan (having been warned off the police) begs Winton and Annette, whose own child was kidnapped, for help. Winton feels so guilty about never contacting the police--even after the return of his child--that he provides ransom cash and helps Evan hide the babysitter's body. Later, Evan disappears and police accuse Winton of murdering the babysitter. This nasty turn of events, like that in Carlon's The Running Woman (LJ 1/98), upsets the original version of things and spices up the plot. For most collections.
Chicago Tribune
An absolute master of wringing every drop of suspense from an apparently simple phrase or an exchange of glances.
Marilyn Stasio
