I've seen pictures of guys like this, snipers or SWAT guys or whatever. Never expected to see one of them in my own house, a living nightmare perched on my favorite chair.

No parent believes it can happen to them -- their child taken from a suburban schoolyard in the gentle hours of dusk. But as widowed mother Kate Bickford discovers, everything can change in the blink of an eye. One minute her lanky, amazing, maddening Tommy is begging for ice cream. Then in a terrible instant, he's gone.

Opening the door to her Connecticut home, hoping to find her son, Kate comes face-to-face with her son's abductor. He wants money. All she has. And if she doesn't follow something he calls The Method, the consequences will be gruesome.

Her comfortable life collapses as precious seconds tick by, and Kate is horrified to uncover the terrible, world-shattering secret she and her son share with a killer who will stop at nothing . . .

In his chilling debut thriller, Chris Jordan takes readers on an unrelenting, psychologically gripping ride that asks a simple question: When it comes to saving the life of your child, how far would you go?

    A psychological thriller that my husband and a cousin have both recommended to me recently. The novel is a psychologically disturbing thriller about just how far a parent will go for their child.

    The protagonist Kate Bickford is a young widow with one son Tomas whose world falls apart when he is abducted. The problem is that the kidnapper Captain Stephen Cutter, whom the reader knows all about, does not consider that he is one! Intriguingly he considers that kidnappers are vile monsters. He sees his taking of Tomas as entirely different, because to save his own son he has to do so.

    Kate is determined to retrieve her son safely and goes to amazing lengths to do so in this heart wrenching story. The young mother appears to willingly do what ever she is told and pay any price. As you take this terrifying fast paced journey with her, the safety of Tomas is uppermost in ones mind. Especially if you are a parent you will soon find yourself questioning, I think just how far you would personally go to save your child. Are you brave enough to act yourself, or would you be satisfied to leave it in the hands of the authorities?

    Although this is not my favourite genre, it was a good read, so if this type of story appeals to you then it is definitely worth reading. Please note though that this book has nothing at all to do with the film of the same name released in 2008, just the same theme of abduction.
