But her abductor is guilty of more than just kidnap, and she has the evidence to prove it. If she escapes from the basement, Beth's toughest challenge will be dealing with the memories. How will she ever overcome her trauma?

Excellent Psychological Suspense

I really enjoyed The Second Captive, which is the second Maggie James novel I've read (so far). I thought the story was unique, in that it captured not only Beth's period of being held captive, but her life with her family afterward. The way these parts of her life were portrayed really brought the story to life for me. I found her character to be empathetic, true to life, and easy to connect with in terms of this novel grabbing me. The author's description of the villain's character and his life and background was also well-done. I highly recommend this book.
