Judge Scott Sampson doesn’t brag about having a perfect life, but the evidence is clear: A prestigious job. A loving marriage. A pair of healthy children. Then a phone call begins every parent’s most chilling nightmare. Scott’s six-year-old twins, Sam and Emma, have been taken. The judge must rule exactly as instructed in a drug case he is about to hear. If he refuses, the consequences for the children will be dire.
For Scott and his wife Alison, the kidnapper’s call is only the beginning of a twisting, gut-churning ordeal of blackmail, deceit, and terror. Through it all, they will stop at nothing to get their children back, no matter the cost to themselves . . . or to each other.
I was transfixed to this book after the first chapter. There is no slow build-up here, we go straight into the horrifying conclusion that someone has kidnapped the children of Alison and her husband, Judge Scott Sampson. They had it all. And now it is evaporating before their eyes.
The Judge receives a phone call alerting him that the twins are in danger and this is just the beginning of the shattering of their picture perfect family and life. He is a judge, he does have influence, but what do they want? Who are these kidnappers? What are his options and who is involved? Scott and Alison are experiencing the worst nightmare any parent could imagine. His next move could alter their lives forever. He can’t afford to make a mistake.
The ordeal that follows is a frantic, twisted chain of events that will bring out lies and deceit and the question who to trust? Do you really know who your married to and what they might be capable of?
A fast paced and energy filled story that kept me picking it up every chance I had! It was very emotional at times involving the two kids and very intense. It is a combination of legal, domestic, and psychological thriller.
