Overview

Jennie McGrady's whirlwind life revolves around one guy: her adorable five-year-old brother Nick. But when he and a playmate disappear one evening, Jennie's world crashes at her feet. Panic-stricken and racing against time, Jennie begins a frantic journey down a dangerous and shadow-filled path ….

Doug Reed has spent his life trying to dodge his own reputation. With a recent move and a new job, he just may leave his past in the dust. Except Jennie McGrady has dug up his criminal record—and it's not pretty.

Anne Stuart seems to have it all together: a perfect home, a loving husband, and a beautiful little girl. When her daughter disappears and Jennie finds Anne bruised and beaten, the ugly truth begins to seep out, scene by scene ….

A random act or a deadly plot?

When her younger brother disappears, sixteen-year-old Jennie McGrady is suspicious of her new neighbor and she puts herself in danger when she tries to find her brother before it is too late.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Jennie McGrady, 16, is a self-styled amateur detective whose skills are put to the ultimate test when her 5-year-old brother, Nick, disappears. The neighborhood is scoured, the police are notified, and Jennie's extended family rallies to support her mother as they wait out the ordeal. Strange circumstances and false clues abound, including the arrival of a suspicious youth in the house across the street, the discovery that two other people are missing, and the obscure revelation that Jennie's absent father has been given a new identity to protect him from unnamed enemies. Love interest appears in Jennie's attraction to a police officer, as well as in the eventual return of her boyfriend, who had been in Alaska for the summer but comes home to Oregon to be by her side. Most unsatisfying is the leisurely sense of time in a tale that should be fraught with urgency and with the strain of great emotion, as the likelihood looms that Nick has been kidnapped and possibly killed. Events mount to a melodramatic conclusion when the insane perpetrator forces Jennie's Mustang off a rainy road and later takes the teen at gunpoint to a secluded cabin where the captives are finally found. Despite a happy ending, readers are left with a sense of too many loose ends and too many stilted emotions.-Susan W. Hunter, Riverside Middle School, Springfield, VT

    A Very Exciting and Wonderful Read!

    This book is one of the best books I have ever read! When Jennie's little brother Nick is kidnapped, she has to find his kidnapper before it's too late! This book is very enthralling in a Christian perspective. Definitely one of Rushford's best! Recommnded for ages 12-16.
