It was a normal day. Then they took her.

Katie Calumet is on an early-morning run when she hears a baby crying. The park is deserted, and there’s no one in the street. She follows the cries, but then everything goes black. When Katie wakes up, she’s blindfolded and her hands and feet are bound.

Detective Justin Cross takes on the case, but with the trail leading into endless dense forest, and a failing marriage weighing on his mind, finding Katie is his most challenging case yet – not least because the Calumet family are keeping secrets of their own.

Justin and Katie face a race against time that will push them both to their very limits. As Justin works day and night to discover who took her and why, Katie fights desperately to escape from her kidnappers and the forest that surrounds her…

Can Justin find her before it’s too late?

A gripping and breath-taking thriller you won’t be able to put down. Perfect for fans of Tom Bale, Rachel Abbott and Robert Dugoni.

My Review

This book is a very suspenseful book thst you feel that you are racing against time to save the kidnapped victim. 

I loved how you could picture the fear I  which Katie must have been in as well as her very real need to survive.

The book while it did deal with with authorities it was more about Katie and her journey as well as meeting her family.

For me the characters were fornthr most part hard to like except for Katie and David.  I also liked the brief appearance of Hoot who was just am interesting loner who helped.

I will definitely read more from this author.  A wonderful job and I am looking forward to seeing what the author comes up with next.
