I was at work, this book popped on the coutner and I immediately stopped what I was doing and read the back and the front of the book. It sounded so fabulous! What could be more of a page turner than a phone dispatcher getting the call from her daughter that disappeared seven years ago?
I hate to say it, but I should have put the book down after the first chapter. It was the most gruesome, bloody, gore-filled book I have read in a long time. I tried so hard to like this book. Heck, I read the whole thing, but so many times I got lost in the man using an axe to cut off another guy's toe or the man who uses his fist to shut up women.
But hey, to each their own. Feel free to let me know if you like this book. The reviews at B&N are 5 stars, so what do I know.
Ian Hunt is the police dispatcher for the small town of Bulls Mouth, East Texas. Just as his shift is ending he gets a call from his fourteen-year-old daughter, Maggie.
Maggie, who has just been declared dead, having been snatched from her bedroom seven years ago. Her call ends in a scream.
The trail leads to a local couple, but this is just the start of his battle to get his daughter back. What follows is a bullet-strewn cross-country chase along Interstate 10, from Texas to California.
The riveting new novel from the acclaimed author of Acts of Violence and Low Life is a brilliantly original, blood drenched thriller, about the lengths a man will go to for his daughter.
