Blackstone Audio, Inc.
After being stood up by her boyfriend, Mia Dennett, meets an attractive man in a bar. She decides to leave with him, but Colin Thatcher turns out to be one of the biggest mistakes of her life.
Colin is not just any guy, but he had been specifically hired to kidnap Mia and hold her for ransom. However, Colin changes the plans in an attempt to protect Mia. He takes her to a secluded cabin in Minnesota and does his best to make sure Mia is safe.
Meanwhile, Mia’s parents – a prominent Chicago judge and his socialite wife – are doing everything to find their daughter. Mia’s mother, Eve, and detective Gabe Hoffman race around the clock desperately searching for her. Eve fears for her daughter’s life and will stop at nothing to get her back.
The book is told from four different point of views – Mia’s, Colin’s, Gabe’s and Eve’s. Listening to the audio was interesting as there were four different people reading each character. Often on audios, there is only one narrator reading many different parts. At least that’s what I’ve found more often than not. Hearing the four different voices made it more compelling. I, also, thought four different point of views gave the reader a chance to hear each character’s perspective of the situation. I found this to be very telling and wonderful technique.
This is one of those books you don’t want to put down or, in my case, not turn off the CD player. I just wanted to keep listening. I was fascinated by this story. To make it even better was that I didn’t see the ending coming at all. It really took me by surprise, but I won’t say anymore. A really good mystery and I’ll definitely be looking for more books by this author in the future.
