Goodreads: When her six-year-old nephew vanishes from a neighborhood carnival, Aubrey Lynd’s safe, snow-globe world fractures; it shatters when the FBI’s investigation raises questions about her own family that Aubrey can’t answer.
Aubrey picks apart the inconsistencies to expose the first of many lies: a ransom note—concealed from the FBI—with a terrifying and impossible ultimatum. Aubrey doesn’t know what to believe or whom to trust. The abduction is clearly personal—but why would someone play a high-stakes game with the life of a child? The more she presses for answers, the more Aubrey is convinced that her mother is hiding something.
Desperate to save her young nephew, Aubrey must face harsh truths and choose between loyalty to her family and doing the right thing. And she’d better hurry, because vengeance sets its own schedule, and time is running out.
Kritters Thoughts: A mystery that just hits the right mark! Aubrey Lynd has just won her son's favor again and her first outing with her grandson is at a carnival where he is kidnapped. With a ransom note in hand, Aubrey must dip into her past to find the clues to find him and get him back.
I would say I am not a huge fan of the 70s. I am just not into that time in history. But I enjoyed the peek into that time of history and hearing about the underground anti war movements that were taking place. I loved how the decisions that Aubrey made were still affecting her 20 years and the people she interacted with in college were still in and out of her life.
I liked this one. It wasn't gory, instead it was all investigation - the way I like a mystery!
I am definitely looking at her backlist also, have you read anything by her?
Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
