I am engrossed from the opening page of Stolen by Carey Baldwin and read this edge of the seat suspense in one sitting.
The hot and sexy investigative team of Cassidy and Spencer heat up the pages as they descend on Denver in search of a monster. The duo may sound a bit familiar? Are they a combination of some that we know and love?
Laura is missing. It is the second time in thirteen years, and some question whether she is the victim or the perpetrator arises.
The psychological terror Laura is under keeps her confused and unsure, doubting her own innocence and what is real. No one around here is helping her and she doesn’t know who she can trust.
With all she has been through, Carey Baldwin has created a strong character, filled with doubt yet determined to find the truth and stop the monster.
I silently urged her to reach out to Caity and Spense. Spense is with the BAU and Caity works along side him as a consultant, but I like the direction Carey Baldwin took.
There are times when I question the direction Carey Baldwin took, but who’s to say what any of us would do if we walked in Laura’s shoes and it keeps the story going in the direction Carey she has chosen. After all, Laura is not a cop, a psychologist or a profiler.
Very quickly, I had my first suspect. His attitude and conduct is sickening and he really pissed me off. He makes a fantastic villain.
That shopping scene is super CREEPY.
Then comes suspect #2 and #3.
There are plenty of twists and turns and Carey Baldwin’s use of misdirection kept me doubting my choice of the serial killer.
Two thumbs up for this fast paced, nail biting suspense and the cast of characters that had me loving them and hating them…you know who you are…
