***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Will detective Marty Keal and Jean Whitley be able to find out the identity of a little boy before it’s too late?
In the riveting mystery novel Stolen, detective Marty Keal is on leave handling personal business when he is drawn back into a case with all of the makings of a sinister event. His partner, detective Jean Whitley, is first on the scene of a horrible crime that took place in a cabin in the woods. She arrives to find an older man dead, a younger man seriously wounded and a half naked child in the back of the cabin who’s apparently been missing for 3 months. Then, the detective finds a little boy running through the woods with little clothes and barely able to communicate. The police have a lot on their plate as they race to find out who the nameless men in the cabin are, who is the distressed little boy and what is the possibly frightening connection between them all?
Highly reviewed author Dawn Kopman Whidden has penned yet another disturbingly memorable mystery that lovers of Patricia Cornwell and James Patterson will be clamoring to read. From beginning to end, Stolen is a fast paced murder mystery with a twist around every turn!
Stolen is a standalone novel that features two intriguing detectives from Dawn Kopman Whidden’s previous mystery novels A Child Torn & Faceless: A Mystery.
Fast paced and full of suspense, this novel deals with some quite disturbing human nature, including sexual abuse, murder, pedophilia and child abduction. The gripping and disturbing murder mystery pulls old characters back together.
The small town of Fallsburg, New York, is where the story picks up. Witnessing a small child, a boy, shirtless and shoe-less, a group of local hunters call emergency services. The boy was running and screaming through the woods.
I don’t want to spoil the story by revealing too much, but I will say I was certainly not disappointed. True to form, Whidden grabs you at the beginning of the story and doesn’t loosen her grip until the mystery is solved.
Whidden is a talented author. She develops her characters flawlessly and commands attention of her audience. Her detailed research into the topics of her books is undeniable. I have no doubt this author is one to watch.
