Four years after Tom and Abby's 12-year-old daughter vanishes, she is found alive but strangely calm. When the teen refuses to testify against the man connected to her disappearance, Tom decides to investigate the traumatizing case on his own. Nothing can prepare him for what he is about to discover.
Ummm… like.. holy cow! This book took off running and never slowed down!
I enjoyed this book very much. Lot’s of stuff for me to like.. short, short chapters, double spacing, simple writing.. but boy it was a hard one to set down once I began to read it! I don’t think I’d be exaggerating if I said I know some people who, if they begin to read this book… will read it in one sitting!
A number of twists and turns and a lot of wondering what happened during those 4 years that their daughter was missing. We’ve probably heard most of things like this on the news at one time or another. It always makes me wonder what makes some of the captives not try to escape and even not want to testify against them when found. I won’t say that this book gives you answers but it will keep your mind moving at a fast speed!
The ending was a little less than I expected, but still.. a really good, fast read. The sort of book one might take on a trip because of short chapters .
I have a second book by David Bell that I might pick up and see if his writing stays at warp speed or slows down some!
