Suspense about a man driven crazy by kidnapping.
Where’s My Son is a solid suspense that starts off introducing us to a nice couple that adopt a baby after three tragic miscarriages. They have a blissful life for 10 years until someone starts harassing the father claiming he stole the man's son. That someone is Michael who was a happily married and loving father until his three-month old son was kidnapped. When Michael's wife dies of cancer three years after the kidnapping, he promises her on her deathbed that he will find their son. The kidnapping changes Michael’s life and that of Detective Jason Strong who stay dedicated, even obsessed, with the case for 10 years.
The writer does a good job demonstrating Michael’s devastation and slow decline into madness. The pain of losing his son, and then his wife, is so heavy that you want him to take action and find out what happened to his son. However, on the other hand, you see how happy his son is with a loving family who has no idea that their son’s adoption was not “real” and that they were the victims of a baby scam.
Rich McVicar's narration really brought the characters to life, completely drawing me into the story. He seamlessly switches between genders and characters with ease. Simply put Where’s My Son was a great listen and I definitely recommend it.
