Every time I get the chance to read a tried and true favorite author, I get nervous. I always think about the fact that the book may not be good. Not the case with this book or author luckily! I really hate when they turn out to be duds.
This book tells the tale of the all American Bennett family. The first chapters are so frightening. The Bennet family is just driving home from a game in their new Mercedes. As you are reading the first chapter you begin to get the buildup of something huge. Was it drama, fear or horror? All three. What happened to the Bennet family seemed to be a car jacking, but it was not. The details are given out over the next few chapters.
We learn a lot about the career of Jason, who is a court reporter for many years. We learn about Lucinda, who has a photography business of her own. The guessing for who, what, when and WHY will have you turning the pages fast.
So there are several twists and turns that the author throws in so you can’t possibly guess the plot. It was a well put together novel by a master author. She adds the police procedures, working with the FBI and politics into the last half of the book. The FBI agents, well they are something else. I can’t go into much about them or what I liked about the character development because of the plot.
Very well written. Special thanks to Penguin Random House and Netgalley
