Trapped by Chris Jordan
“Mom, I need your help. Please call—” That’s it. The call cuts off in midsentence. No static. Nothing.Just an overwhelming silence.
Long Island single mom Jane Hartley is frantic when her sixteen-year-old daughter, Kelly, a survivor of childhood leukemia, disappears from her bedroom one night. To Jane’s frustration, the police believe that Kelly ran off willingly with her boyfriend, Seth. Unaware that her daughter even had a boyfriend, Jane soon discovers that Seth is no boy. He is an adult—a man who, after meeting Kelly on the Internet, took the teenager on one thrill-seeking ride after another. From motorcycles to skydiving, Jane’s little girl has been hiding some dangerous secrets.
Like mother, like daughter.
Adamant that Kelly is not a runaway but, rather, is being held against her will, Jane hires ex-FBI agent Randall Shane to follow the trail of her missing child. But every step brings them closer to a cold-blooded predator lurking in the shadows… coiled around Jane’s shameful secret…waiting to strike.
This one hit close to home with the kidnapping of Jane’s teenage daughter who has kept secrets from her mom. 2nd book of Chris Jordan’s Randall Shane mysteries. Great way to pass a Sunday afternoon.
This is the 2nd one I’ve read by Chris Jordan. They aren’t excellent in keeping me grasping at the pages to find out what’s going to happen next, but I do like them and like them enough to read more of his.
