Shatter is a most interesting thriller that takes a look at how far a mother will go to protect her child. In the first two cases there isn't even verifiable proof that their children are in danger. Just the treat of harm to their children was enough for them to go to extremes. It is certainly worthy of discussion. Would you be willing to jump off a bridge if a man on the phone told you that he had kidnapped your child?

It wasn't until I was more than halfway through this book and went in search of the synopsis that I realized it was part of a series. It was not obvious in any sort of way, and that is always a good thing. Shatter was also the first non-Agatha Christie mystery set in England that I remember reading in recent days. It was well written and the kind of page turner that is full of shocking turn of events. I also found it interesting the way that Joe O'Laughlin deals with his disease. And in some cases he doesn't deal with it at all.
