It begins with an abduction. The routine of a family shopping trip is shattered when Michelle Spivey is snatched as she leaves the mall with her young daughter. The police search for her, her partner pleads for her release, but in the end…they find nothing. It’s as if she disappeared into thin air.
A month later, on a sleepy Sunday afternoon, medical examiner Sara Linton is at lunch with her boyfriend Will Trent, an agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. But the serenity of the summer’s day is broken by the wail of sirens.
Sara and Will are trained to help in an emergency. Their jobs – their vocations – mean that they run towards a crisis, not away from it. But on this one terrible day that instinct betrays them both. Within hours the situation has spiralled out of control; Sara is taken prisoner; Will is forced undercover. And the fallout will lead them into the Appalachian mountains, to the terrible truth about what really happened to Michelle, and to a remote compound where a radical group has murder in mind…
WHAT I THOUGHT:
This book goes straight in my top five of the year, there is nothing not to like about this story. Its gripping in all the right places and I loved it. I blame the author for the bags under my eyes, I had to keep reading as the suspense running all the way through is constant. Also this was different and way out there but so engaging that you just had to read the next bit. I love the two main character’s Will and Sara, even though Will sounds a bit odd at times the love between these two seems to be present constantly in their heads when thinking about the other one, like they were telepathic.
The missing person, Michelle Spivey is a touch of genius as you don’t link her to the main story line and what a story that is, I was surprised at the turn of events towards the end about her. The details in this book are excellent, well done for such strict knowledge about these things. I don’t want to give anything away as you have got to read this book. Thank you for allowing me to read and review.
Looking forward to the next book.
