Visceral Imagesby Christopher Metzger
Police soon discover the boy in a nearby motel room, only to find/p>
Veteran TV news producer Matt Fallon has covered the local Philadelphia news market for years and has seen it all: murders, fires, and natural disasters. But while on a seashore vacation, a respite from the mayhem, the unthinkable happens: his own 10-year-old son disappears into thin air.
Police soon discover the boy in a nearby motel room, only to find that he had been subjected to a horrific medical experiment. With little evidence and no suspects, Matt begins his own search for the perpetrators under the guise of doing a special news series for his flagging TV station, Philly4.
Driven by fury to avenge his chronically ill son, Matt's probe leads him to a dark place, not only in the real world but also in the shadowy realm created by television news images. As his investigation gets nearer to the core of the crime and the danger increases, Matt discovers that his fury and hate doubleback on him!

Visceral Images is great fiction with characters I hope to see in a sequel. It grabs you-this could easily be your kid in trouble. Beneath the fast paced story Christopher Metzger challenges us on some serious issues, such as the public's 'right to know' when this could endanger the victim. We see this media man struggle as a father against his co-workers-cool headed reporters...it leaves you with something to think about after you have enjoyed the read. It would be a good book for a book club to discuss!
I found this a fascinating read. I read this while on vacation in Block Island and was totally consumed with the book. What I really enjoyed was the mix of mystery, suspense, romance and adventure that this work provided. Kudos to this great new author. This is his second work that I have thoroughly enjoyed. Also loved the adorable baby on the cover!
This was a great quick read with something for everyone. I really enjoyed the mix of mystery, suspense, adventure and romance. I read this while on vacation in Block Island and it totally consumed me. That to me is the best test for a good book. Thumbs up to the author!! Really liked the cover-adorable baby!
I enjoyed this book, and I praise its style. I found it to be a real 'page-turner,' if I may use that cliche, filled with suspense and intrigue. I couldn't put it down. I highly suggest this book to all who enjoy suspense/thriller type books. I also enjoyed Metzger's other book.
