    Nonstop horror!

    For her first novel, Donna Lee Comer has written a ripsnorter of a taut, suspenseful novel that had me on the edge of my seat most of the time. The story is about Maggie and Jim Taylor and their young daughter Sarah who live in a quiet Pennsylvania town. Their lives are perfectly normal until Sarah is kidnapped, the third kidnapping of young girls in the area over a few weeks. Maggie and Jim's faith is tested, and their marriage is shaken in trying to weather the storm created by Sarah's kidnapping. When Sarah's body is found a couple of weeks later, Maggie and Jim are devastated.

    Incredibly, just as Maggie has a startling revelation about the kidnapping, she herself is kidnapped by a psychotic man who makes Norman Bates look like a choirboy. Imprisoned in a small shed, Maggie learns that she is the fourth woman to be taken by Walter Mills, a ne'er do well who wants a woman to love him. Determined to live, Maggie tries to play along, hoping that an opportunity to escape presents itself.

    The police battle with the answer to the question: is there one kidnapper or are there two of them? The younger pre-teen girls were killed almost immediately, and their bodies were found. Maggie and the other young women, on the other hand, just disappeared without a trace, and no bodies had been found. And only Maggie knows the answer.

    "A Day For a Day" rachets up the tension and builds to a gut-wrenching climax, one that left me breathless. Ms. Comer knows how to write a suspenseful thriller. She expertly threaded the narrative so that the mysteries were gradually revealed, with the suspense steadily building.

    One element of "A Day For a Day" involved the experiences and emotions of families who have lost children to child molesters. I don't know how the author is so familiar with the process that families go through, but it sounded very believable. I should add that even though young girls are abducted and abused and killed in the novel, there are no explicit scenes.

    For a new novelist, Ms. Comer's writing style is very smooth, and if not quite at the level of big name authors, it's close. One minor comment about dialog between characters: the lack of contractions made some of the dialog seem a bit stilted or overformal.

    Overall, a fine first novel by Ms. Comer that I recommend to anyone.

    A CLEAN MYSTERY THRILLER!

    Donna Lee Comer has written a fast paced, suspense filled, reality fiction thriller! Donna is my wife and this is her first attempt at writing! When she told me she had begun a mystery novel back in 2007, I said, "Sure, and I'm going to take over for Evel Knievel and jump the Grand Canyon!" I didn't say that but it is what I was thinking.
    Donna has certainly quelled my skepticism and truthfully, after reading her first three chapters, I could not wait for her to complete "A Day For A Day"
    The way she has introduced each character and then stream lined a twist of events that keeps the pages turning, is nothing short of mesmerizing!
    If you like emotion, drama, excitement with a dash of romantic sentiment at the end, I think just one box of kleenex will get you through it!
    Five Stars, Donna! .... Great job!
