** spoiler alert ** Just when it looks as though Meg Powers has settled into life in the White House while still retaining her own independence, she is kidnapped. It isn't entirely clear what the kidnappers' purposes may be or how they infiltrated the Secret Service, but Meg barely survives the harrowing experience. The scenes in which one of the men hits her and kicks her in the knee are gut-wrenching, and then, when she is left for dead in a mine shaft, she must go to unthinkable lengths in order to survive. When she makes it out of their alive, she is changed, and the road to recovery seems to be a long one since Meg avoids her friends and family. Just as in the previous two books, Meg's courage and spirit and unquestionable, but healing from the emotional and physical trauma will take everything she has. Although I liked many parts of this book more than the other two titles, there are too many holes surrounding the kidnapping for my taste.
