*** 1/2 stars. Michael Robotham writes a page turner!! The story alternates narration between Piper, one of two teen-age girls kidnapped and held hostage for more than 3 years, and Joseph O'Loughlin, a clinical psychologist who struggles with Parkinson's disease and the fact that his own daughter was also kidnapped in the past. He is called in as a consultant when two people are murdered in the former home of one of the girls. The main suspect is a psychologically wounded young man who hears voices and says he saw a young girl fleeing through a snowstorm being chased by a snowman. One of O'Loughlan's first tasks is to convince the local police to re-open the case of the missing girls and that there might still be someone to save. At times the book is difficult because the girls are subjected to sexual violence, but with that warning, I have to recommend the book highly. By the last 50 pages you are frantic to know who the real kidnapper is and whether Piper will survive. This is the 5th book in this British series. I have read them all plus a couple of stand - alone novels. As always I suggest starting with the first book in the series, "The Suspect" as Robotham's characters are complex and develop from book to book.

I grabbed this book on my way out of the library from a display of books recommended by library staff. What caught my eye was a one-line review on the cover by David Baldacci and I had just listened to an audiobook by him and loved it. Have to say that my expectations were high because of this and was a bit disappointed. The book had a very good story line, but I was disturbed by the sexual violence towards the two teenage girls in the story, who had been kidnapped. I have to say the end of the book was very good and surprising to learn who the kidnapper / killer really was. Just an OK read for me--5 out of 10.
