This book was Stellar, It's fast paced, with a healthy dose of suspense, Action and Adventure..
I always enjoy when the victim is someone you love to hate. pick the villain and it fits. I enjoy this type of psychological thriller because everyone's a suspect and you don't just guess the answer right away.
I look forward to more by this author ..

I will not be recommending this book to anyone. I was actually giving out 4 stars for a while and wondering if I was just crazy in love with the genre. Upon getting to another book before this and now this one, nope, those were just very well written. I expected more from Bale. Plots are layered upon each other only to be quickly done away with. The pacing is a rollercoaster ride, with the end taking no turns, but merely chugging along at a snail's pace. The final 30 minutes seemed contrived for added action, and the hour leading up to that was painful. A decent story if you are between intense thrillers, but don't want to switch genres. I haven't given up on the author though. I'll try one more, but I wasn't largely impressed. This wasn't terrible, but there are better.
I must admit I have been conflicted by this book. On one hand I hate gratuitous violence and in particular when it is of a sexual nature. On the other hand what could I possibly have expected when I read the synopsis of the story before buying? Thankfully the author keeps proceedings tightly controlled and relatively easy to stomach and this is a testament to his skill as a thriller writer. The plot chugs along at a cracking pace and the great strength for me was the fact I really liked the family in peril. They are certainly not angelic by any stretch of the imagination, but this makes the whole thing a very big cut above average.
I was kept intrigued to the end and left feeling like I wanted to hear more from this author and the narrator, who did a first class job.

loved the book, it kept me on the edge of my seat most of the way through, not for the faint hearted. can be a little graphically in places, but not over the top. would recommend 100%, good thriller.
