Young, beautiful, single women in financial trouble are disappearing. The protagonists Emma Kane and Jacob Thorne are busy beating the pavement trying to find out what has happened to them and who is taking them. Who ever it is doesn't fit the standard profile that says when a man is obsessed with women he has a type that he sticks to. Other then the obvious good looks, the kidnapped women have nothing in common. Not race, hair color or occupation. Special Agent Emma Kane has a theory that that women are being collected like baseball cards but instead of for each player it's for each type and it's been going on for about 20 years. These women are trophies. There are so many twists and when the kidnapper decides to take Emma the suspense ratchets up a few notches.
I really like this story and think if it had not been so short it could have easily been a great book. The problem is there is so much packed into this it becomes very predictable. The characters are very superficial and a plot with so much potential is never fully developed.
Norman Gilligan does an excellent job narrating.
I recommend this book for a quick light read when you are looking for something in between books that are more involved.

Final a surprise ending!!! Not many books really keep you guessing till the end, but this book delivered on that promise. Only negative that I can say is it had an annoying liberal verses conservative under tone. Is there nowhere we can escape from people airing their political grievances???
