Publisher's Summary

Children disappear all the time. It's in the news every day. Where do they go? What happens to them? Who has taken them? While covering a story for his tabloid newspaper, reporter Bentley Noble accidentally stumbles onto something else entirely...a story about something so unspeakable, he doesn't know if anyone will believe it...a story that pulls him down into the depths of evil and depravity and threatens his very life. With the help of a best-selling true-crime writer, Noble descends into the dark world of human trafficking, where fear and pain are tools of control and innocence is sold to the highest bidder. As a handful of good and decent people try to combat a monstrously powerful and all too real evil, some lives will be shattered, others will be ended...but none will be the same.

Disappointed

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend this book in written form and not the narrated format as it is here. Seth Michael Donsky is the worst narrator I have ever cone across. He makes the characters sound like backwood idiots or B movie actors. The actual book is very good, however, the narrating really detracts from the overall enjoyment of this book. I will not buy another book narrated by Mr. Donsky.

Would you be willing to try another one of Seth Michael Donsky’s performances?

Not ever.!.

The narrator absolutely ruins this book



The subject matter in this book is gruesome, and although the introduction seemed to treat it with the seriousness it deserves, the narrator did not. He made a parody of many of the major characters- giving them voices that sounded as if some gross jerk was doing stand-up in a seedy bar. The geeky teen computer genius sounded as if he was dull, high, and sucking on marbles. The worst is the preacher, who slowly enunciates at all times as if he is a comedian mocking the delivery of a sermon to a very slow audience in a tent revival- even during those scenes I'm sure the author intended to be thrilling, and fast paced. I actually laughed out loud, which is a reaction I'm sure the author never intended. His rendition of characters who are supposed to be expressing really intense emotions during some really extreme situations renders this a grisly comedy.


Although the ending is a little clunky, regardless of the narration;
my advice is read the book- because without the comedic rendition, it's a good story.

Creepy

This book had me gripped from the very start. At times very hard to listen as the subject matter is heartbreaking, but this is the first book by this author I have read and I will definitely be back for more. Even though it was written in the 90s it doesn't feel dated and I love the techno aspect in the book. Also big credit to Seth Michael Donsky for narrating this so well. Fab.

good story, silly performance

The story is good, the reading, however, ist extremely silly: the speaker's imitation of people's laughter has you cringe with embarassment, and his exaggerated theatrical reading takes away quite a bit of the enjoyment.
