Summary

Just a second. That was all it took. In that second Anita Sherwood sees the face of the young boy in the window of the bus as it stops at the curb...and she knows it is her son. The son who had been kidnapped two years before. The son who had never been found and who had been declared legally dead. But now her son is alive. Anita knows it in her heart. She is certain that the boy is her son, but how can she get anyone to believe her? She'd given the police leads before that ended up going nowhere, so they're not exactly eager to waste much time on another dead end on a dead case. It's going to be up to Anita, and she'll stop at nothing to get her son back.

Critic reviews

"Brian Pinkerton's first thriller takes familiar themes, but repackages them with skill and some daring, resulting in a page-turning read that's just cinematic enough to grab you and force you to read well past your bedtime." (William D. Gagliani, Chiaroscuro)

Enjoyable

A fast paced Murder, Mystery and suspense story. My first book by this author - good, I would read another novel by Brian Pinkerton. Unfortunately this book did not come close to my favourite crime writers.

Disappointing

The story started out pretty good but went down hill from there. It dragged with almost a juvenile feel to the writing style. The ending was corny and predictable.

Wonderful, thrilling ride

This is a very exciting read that held me captivated from the very first sentence.Nothing is at it first seems in this very gripping tale.
My only complaint is that the narration, which is usually excellent, really falters on the men's voices. The voices of the men just don't sound believable. Otherwise the reader is emphatic and
tells the story in a wonderfully, measured manner.
