A desperate hunt for a missing child ... A chilling novel of suspense from a NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author

The main character, Megan O'Malley, was newly assigned to replace a long time and beloved detective in small town Minnesota. Megan is well qualified with 10 years of experience and ample credentials, but seems determined to show the huge chip on her shoulder at every turn. She not only criticizes the investigative methods of the Chief (her boss!) but does so publicly. Again and again he acknowledges (in many concrete ways) that he res ...more
"She breathed in the waxy scent of crayons and felt as if one had been driven through her heart."
Hah. I'm on page 404 and so far there have been three official clues and the MOST TEDIOUS characters. The woman who broke the sex barrier for females in her position in law enforcement broke her "no dating cops" rule and slept with the chief the second day she knew him, putting her job at risk and looking like an idiot to all working women to boot. I no longer care about ...more
There was a nice romantic element to the story, and I really fell in love with some of the characters. There were also characters that Hoag forced you to love to hate. I couldn't help disliking them, I actually enjoyed hating them and kept wishing dreadful things on them lol. But I think that's ...more

This is my second book of Tami Hoag & I must say her writing is totally exceptional (especially in this book) with so much new words in every page. The story, the writing, the characters, the hum ...more
I was handed this book while waiting at an airport. The person had just finished it and said that the book wasn't a bad read. Maybe I misunderstood and the person said it was a bad read? I was bored so I read it on a long flight. Wish I hadn't.
All the stock characters are here. The strong female cop with daddy issues trying to make it in a man's world, who falls for the local polic ...more
Hoag skillfully presents a two-week torturous ordeal for the family, the community, and the law enforcement people. In fact, Agent Megan O’Malley is experiencing a baptism of fire, since her first day on the job as a field agent is also the day the boy was taken. This will hold your interest as the winding path of the plotline takes you insid ...more
Nota muito negativa para a tradução e para a revisão. Erros grosseiros, gralhas e uma tradução medíocre não ajudam nada um livro que já de si é fraco.
I never had any huge expectation from this book, the last few crime novels which I have read, which deals with kidnapping, the culprit invariably turns out to be a psycho who just kidnaps, to satisfy his lust for power and he has no intention to demand any ransom. S ...more
