This was the first book I’ve read by this author Robert Ristino, but I certainly hope it’s not the last. He has a gift for writing descriptive and life-like scenes that make us feel like we are really there inside the story, as opposed to it all just being “told” to us, as so many rookie authors make the mistake of doing. I like that this book didn’t feel stale or derivative of every other thriller/kidnap book out there, but instead like a new niche of action and suspense that serves well to help diversify a somewhat cookie-cutter genre (in my opinion). It was fast paced and very creepy and disturbing, but overall the entire novel was one that I thought was well-crafted and delivered an emotional win in the end.
