Publisher's Summary

Another homicide has rocked the small town of Fallsburg, New York. In a cabin nestled deep in the woods, two male victims are discovered, both gunshot victims. One is deceased the other one is barely alive.
But it is not the murder itself that has detectives Jean Whitley and her new partner Marty Keal frantic to find out the answers of what occurred in that cabin, it is the identities of the two small children also found at the scene. One child is quickly identified, but the other, a young boy, remains a mystery. The only one with possible answers is the man who lays critically wounded and unconscious in the hospital, because the unidentified boy either cannot or will not speak.
What happened in that cabin that left one man dead and another barely hanging on?

Each Character is it's Own Mystery

This book is layered and nuanced. Most basically it is a 'Who done it', however untangling both the characters and even the setting is more complex and ultimately more rewarding in my opinion than puzzling out the 'Who done it'.

The narrator does a great job with the female voices, and even the gruff male voices, however she seems to have a problem with normal male voices and goes slightly nasal-ly. Otherwise the performance is good, and even passionate in the emotionally charged scenes. Even with the challenging voices, the narrator is still engaging enough to be immersive.

The action transfers from wilderness, to suburban, to downtown city. The action between these transitions is in itself thrilling but also organic as it switches back and forth. Another area where this book blurs the lines and my personal favorite focus of the book is the reasons for abnormal behavior such as prolonged exposure to negative conditions, chemical imbalances, obsessive need, physical injury, childhood environment, or mental condition. The book also points out how people who encounter these conditions from parents, to strangers, to emergency responders, to police to medical professionals must correctly identify and deal with each of these. I thoroughly enjoyed the book.

Fantastic story, great characters

I was provided with a free copy of this audiobook in return for an honest review.

I feel very fortunate in that having received a free copy of Faceless (book 2) by the same author I was lucky enough to obtain this third novel free in return for my honest opinion.

Upon listening to Faceless I loved the characters the author created and I was looking into following up on them when I got the free copy of Stolen.

I was thrilled to find the same narrator reading the story and within minutes it felt like an extension to the previous novel. The characters are well drawn, sympathetic and interesting. Although it is probably better to read them in sequence as a series, they are perfectly good novels as standalone stories.

The author has a great talent for dealing with incredibly difficult subjects (warning for all this novel deals with child abduction and associated issues) and treating them sensitively and humanely. She is able to give even difficult characters a human side and I love this ability of hers.

There is no doubt in my mind now that Dawn Whiddon is going on my authors to look for list. One book can be a one off, but two shows skill and talent, I'm looking forward to the next instalment of Whitley and Keal.

Any additional comments?

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Stolen is the third book in the Whitley & Keal series and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Whereas Faceless (book #2) was more focused on Jean Whitley and her family, Stolen was more focused on Marty Keal and his family. I really liked the interaction between Marty and Hope, and even with the Captain and the lost child. Whidden has a real ability to create authentic characters that draw you into the plot and make you care.

The narrator, Amy Deuchler, is also an incredible fit for this series. While I prefer her narrating as Jean, I did like her narrating as Marty as well, and for the most part I did find it easy to differentiate the characters by the narrative.
