In the remote, rugged corner of Montana's Glacier National Park known as the Devil's Grasp, little Paige Baker of San Francisco disappears with her dog, Kobee, while on a camping trip with her family; or so her mother and father have told authorities. A multiagency task force launches a massive search as Paige fights to survive in the wilderness. Time hammers against her, and soon the nation is gripped by the life-and-death drama. Secretly, behind the scenes, the FBI grows suspicious of Paige's parents. Their recent history and disturbing evidence links them to a horrible secret from the past.

I finally stopped listening at the lie detector scene. five minutes worth of research would have told the author that scene was ridiculous
This was the dumbest story I have listened to. I found no sympathy or connection to any characters except for the dog. And who says I did not, they will not, I cannot in regular conversation? Most people say I didn't, they didn't, I can't
"Circumstances and the sin of omission"
There was a lot going on in this book. A huge list of characters, some who were not really necessary in my opinion. Overall the book held my interest because I wanted to know what happens to little Paige. We have a family of three on a camping trip, where the mother is dealing with unresolved issues from her past. The mother goes off alone to sulk, the father is upset because the wife is being secretive. The child is caught in the middle thinking her parents no longer love each other. Unset, the father yells at the child to go be with her mother. When the mother returns without the daughter, panic sets in . Where is Paige? When the authorities arrive the parents are soon under suspicion. Thus begins the hunt, the investigation, the suspicion and the doubts. Also thrown into the mix is the "monster" from the mom's past who is waiting on dead row to be executed in a few days. How will he play a part in this ? It is well worth the read to find out.
"A new addiction"
I loved the nonstop action and excitement with many twists and turns. It got so I just wanted to sit and listen and do nothing. Finally I blue toothed my iPhone to my tap and tied my tap to my waist so every word was clear and nothing missed. Great for all ages and excitement without sex and constant swearing. Have bought 5 more of his books and am currently really enjoying "Vengeance Road" playing on my tap tied to my waist and managing to get things done around my home.
"Could have been better"
Maybe.....if you have nothing else to do.
Made it shorter (its 11 hours). There are too many sub-plots, too much unnecessary and boring dialog. The story is interesting but long and drawn out. I lost interest midway but I managed to get through it because I wanted to find out what happened to the missing girl.
It would need some serious editing, but, yes, it might make an interesting TV series.
"Got hit from the first few minutes"
I was enthralled with this book and it does have turns and twist I never saw coming.
"Exciting story of a missing child"
A girl goes missing from her family's campsite. Her parents had been arguing and not watching her.
A man is on death row for the murder of another girl many years prior.
The story unfolds and we don't know who did what.
Well written and well narrated. I will look for more by this author and narrator.
This was a very thrilling novel. Any parent knows the fear of losing a child and the author did a very good job relaying the emotional roller coaster of emotions. The character development was very good and the narrator did an excellent job with the various character voices. It was non stop thrills!! I look forward to listening to more books from this author!!
"Hard to put down"
Kept me on the edge of my seat. Con: too many charActers to keep track og
"Kept my attention"
This audiobook kept me guessing and second-guessing the whole time. I appreciated the fact that this is part of a series but the author ensured that it would be a complete and independent experience if the reader chose not to read the other books in the series.
The narrator was very good as well.
