Trapped Book Review by Chris Jordan

Trapped  (Randall Shane #2)Trapped by Chris Jordan

Goodreads Summary:

“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.

My Thoughts:

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. 🙂

3 of 5 stars

  1. Dear Shannon,

    Sorry for approaching you in your comments, but I was unable to find an email address. You’re a school teacher so I’m sure that it is by design. And I know your time is limited and have to be very selective in the books you review, but I would count myself very lucky if you considered my book A Soul’s Calling for review on your website.

    A Soul’s Calling is a memoir about a man who listened to his heart instead of reason. The book, a work of speculative non-fiction, is part travelogue, part hiking adventure, with shamanism and magic woven throughout.

    A Soul’s Calling transports readers to Nepal’s rugged but enchanting Khumbu Valley where mountains speak and nature is imbued with a special kind of magic. The novel is an inspiring modern day adventure that weaves the timeless themes of living an authentic life, the consequences of power, and what a man would do for unrequited love.

    Scott, a forty-something attorney, is average in every way except one. He has a connection to the Other Side. He speaks to Spirit and Spirit speaks to him. He sees, hears, and interacts with an invisible realm that is beyond ordinary human perception. When Scott learns his soul has been spiritually compromised he travels to the ancient kingdom of Nepal to win it back. Once there, he hikes the Himalaya carrying a mysterious bundle and a stick laden with prayers from Luminous Beings hoping to come face to face with the greatest mountain on earth: Mount Everest. As his journey unfolds, Scott is called on to battle his fear of heights, the thin air, and his physical limitations. Powerful, sweeping, and deeply moving, readers will search their hearts as the book draws to a stunning conclusion.

    If this sounds appealing, I would be happy to provide you with a copy. To read an excerpt from the book, please visit http://www.scott-bishop.com or you can view it using Amazon’s Look Inside feature here:

    • I would be glad to read it and review it on my blog. Although I’ve never been interested in the fantasy/magical genre the hiking aspect is really drawing me in. 🙂

I love hearing from you. Let's have a conversation!
