Riley Lambert is a profiler with the FBI. As a young girl, Riley witnessed her sister's abduction and vowed that she would bring her back. For 15 years Riley has worked on her sister's case while working her own FBI caseload. During one of her cases she met Thayne Blackwood and had a brief but passionate week with him. Ever since that encounter, they've phoned each other weekly. They understand each other and have grown to rely on those weekly calls. Then Thayne's sister is abducted and Thayne turns to Riley for help. What follows is a puzzle of epic proportions with the whole town racing against the clock to solve the mystery.
What an awesome thriller! This book has all the necessary elements-
* it's a great story
* it's action packed
* the protagonist (Riley, and Thayne to some degree) is one who has the most to lose. You see these characters fears, hopes, and heartaches. You also see an emotional change in them fighting to accept the likely outcome and realizing what they want in their own lives.
* The author does an amazing job of letting the reader inside the heads of many characters building up the dramatic tension.
* there's no useless info. Each scene reveals something new. No time is wasted.
* it deals with relevant issues- alzheimers, PTSD, the trauma of families following an abduction.
There are no dull moments in this story. It's fast paced with lots of action and mystery. I am hoping there will be other books to follow this one as I would really like to know what's in store for many of the other characters. If you want a book that keeps you up all night, biting your nails, this is the book for you!
