I wanted much more background on all the characters, good and evil, in this gripping, suspenseful story. There's a dreary sameness among child-rapers, but the other "Men In [Smith's] Town," including Smith himself, are intriguing enough to merit more screen time. The author could have filled out the story without slowing things down. Instead, he opted for an unsatisfying short-story spareness. There are also many verbal mistakes that knock it down from a 4-plus.

The first two chapters really drew you in but the next few were confusing although it got back on track and had a satisfying ending -cant say good due to the subject matter.

There were a few sections that were overly descriptive.Good on the author for being brave enough to share such an experience

True story about a boy who was kidnapped and raped in the 1970s.
I don't have very much to say.
I just wasn't a fan.
