The novel is surely full of suspense that mounts up as the story continues and at the same time the thrill in the tour does not and all. Lisa Scottoline joins the story quite well and the plot is no doubt a strong one. The main character in the story Ellen Gleeson is tested at different levels that are both emotional and physical.
She feels the intensity that no woman had ever faced. The story begins with the reading of the flyer that Ellen finds in the mail about a lost child that she hardly notices at first but at the second glance her life seems to move away from her as the child in the flyer resembles her adopted son that she loves and is the only relation that she has in her life. She cannot leave this matter unattended as she is too sensitive sort of a person who cannot just hide away from all this.
The investigation that she starts becomes a threat not only for her life but also for the life of her son. Ellen tries to convince herself all the time that she has adopted the boy legally according to the law but something keeps on telling her that she should get to the root of the matter in one way or the other.
The desperation of a mother rises at its peak in the tale and plus there is also a promise for action all the way in this fine thriller that is narrated well by Mary Stuart Masterson who has kept a good pace with the story throughout.
The words used and the scenes described also make the whole tale more appealing to the mind. Her Last Move – John Marrs and The Little Drummer Girl – John le Carré are other interesting suspense stories to thrill your mind, so you may enjoy listening to these as well
