Two kidnappings, ten years apart, of girls twelve miles distant from one another. The first hasn't been found when the second is taken.
The novel follows the story of the two involved families and the Special Agent trying to solve the second kidnapping.
I was reading along at a 3.5 star, 4 star sort of level, enjoying the story but not overwhelmed, until the killer was revealed. I haven't been truly surprised in a long time, and this did it, and it did it legitimately without rabbits out of hats or illegal moves. I thought I knew who the perpetrator was, and I was way wrong, and so five stars, Kylie Brant - all of a sudden the book went from "good book" to "holy cow, good for you!"
The character development is good, not fabulous, but solid. Voices similar - they could really be a little more distinct than they are. Plot is great. Really liked Janie, the sister of the first kidnapped girl - she has a unique perspective and role in the plot.
Overall, solid book that I upped to five stars for surprising the daylights out of me.
