Beth Sutton is eighteen years old when she is abducted. Held prisoner in a basement, she’s dependent on her captor for food, clothes and her very existence. As the months pass, her hatred towards her imprisoner changes to compassion.
But Beth cannot forget that her abductor is also a killer. And she has evidence to prove it…
Then Beth escapes
Can Beth escape from the prison that she has found herself in?
And is there a relationship between love and fear?
My Review: 4/5
This book is gripping and horrifying. When Beth thinks she’s going on a date with Dominic, he actually holds her captive for 2 years in his basement. She learns the only way to survive is to learn to obey his rules, including telling him she loves him.
I cannot imagine what it’s like to go through what Beth goes through. The author does a great job describing her horror as she doesn’t know her captor’s next move.
This is the second book I’ve read by Maggie James. It is gripping. The relationship between Beth and her mother is so heartwarming. At what lengths would you go to protect your child?
Thank you to Bloodhound books for a copy in exchange for an unbiased review.
Maggie James is a British author who lives in Bristol. She writes psychological suspense novels.
Before turning her hand to writing, Maggie worked mainly as an accountant, with a diversion into practising as a nutritional therapist. Diet and health remain high on her list of interests, along with travel. Accountancy does not, but then it never did. The urge to pack a bag and go off travelling is always lurking in the background!
