As I began reading this book, it was as if the author's hand had loosed his pen and lifted from the page, grabbed me by the lapel, and pulled me in. Cliff Elliott reads about the serial kidnapper, that is preying on the city's wealthiest, and thinks he is safe because his socioeconomic lot in life is so much lower than the victims. He. Couldn't.

A Critical Loss of Balance is an excellent read and I could almost promise this story would pull you in. You'll never know the depths that you would go to for someone that you love or for something that you think is right until you're put smack dab in that situation. This story makes that reality feel so much closer and really got me thinking what I would do in that situation.

Trouble seems to follow Cliff Elliott. When his daughter is kidnapped, he begins the task of finding out who did such a thing to his family … not an easy undertaking. The circumstances prove to be an action-packed story for readers of this novel of suspense and intrigue.
I very much enjoyed reading this book. It was fairly fast-paced and I liked several of the characters in the story. It was definitely worth my time!

This book kept me on the edge of my seat - I had to finish it because I couldn't stop thinking about it. In the end there were many questions left unanswered, so I'm assuming there will be other books in this series to follow. It was just nice to be able to read a criminal mystery without all the language, sex and over the top violence that many of them contain.
