As nasty as I knew Peter Terry to be, I never expected him to start kidnapping kids. Much less a sweet, funny little boy with nothing to protect him but a few knock-kneed women, two rabbits, and a staple gun…
It’s psychology professor Dylan Foster’s favorite day of the academic year–graduation day. A day of pomp, circumstance, and celebration. And after all the mortar boards are thrown, Dylan and some of her best friends will gather around a strawberry cake to celebrate Christine Zocci’s sixth birthday. But the joyful summer afternoon goes south when a little boy is snatched from a neighborhood park, setting off a chain of events that seem to lead exactly nowhere.
Police are baffled, but Christine’s eerie connection with the kidnapped child sends Dylan on a chilling investigation of her own. Is the pasty, elusive stranger Peter Terry to blame? Exploding light bulbs, the deadly buzz of a Texas rattlesnake, and the vivid, disturbing dreams of a little girl are just pieces in a long trail of tantalizing clues leading Dylan in her dogged search for the truth.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
I’ve sat on this review for a little bit because I had to form an opinion, one that I can actually write about. I mean, I liked this book and thought it had a great storyline and everything so I don’t even know why it’s taken me so long to get this review up, this book definitely needs some pimping.
So on with the pimping…
This book is part of a series. It would have been nice to have read the other books first since we meet characters and find things out, things that are discussed in this book but it wasn’t too bad. I still thoroughly enjoyed this book and thought Melanie Wells will definitely get read again in the near future.
I don’t want to give a run down of the book since this isn’t a romance but a mystery and it will ruin the story if I gave too many details away but I will say this, the pacing of the story is fantastic, the storyline itself is great and easy to follow and the characters are very likeable. All in all, this book is a great read and I will definitely be checking out more of her stuff. Many thanks to Melanie Wells and her people for sending us a copy of this book to review. I enjoyed it and I know that anyone who is in need of a good mystery will enjoy this book, so seriously…check it out.
