A book review.

This is one of the most gripping edge of the seat thrillers that I have ever ready. What a wonderful book! There was never a dull moment and I couldn’t put the book down even for a moment. Plenty of twists, turns, a high element of suspense and spine chilling incidents that make you glued to this book.

Ian works for a Portland-based organization, Child First, where he supervises the visits between children and their estranged or divorced parents. He is supervising a visit between Tommy and his father when he receives a death threat from an unknown number. He turns his attention towards Tommy but he isn’t there. Fearing the worst, Ian manages to find him with his father and drops him at his mother’s place. A vagrant tries to get his attention by forcing him to accept a paper while Ian is on his way to the office.

He greets Jeannie McCabe, the oldest daughter of his boss, Linda McCabe. He tells Linda about the death threat and she advises him to file a police complaint. On his way home, he meets the same guy again and gives him money in exchange for the newspaper. When he returns home, he opens the paper and an envelope falls down. It contains a visitor’s pass to the Oregon State Penitentiary in nearby Salem and a note written to him by his daughter’s murderer, Tyler Young, who had run her over while she was returning from school. The note says that he was paid to murder her. Ian is full of rage. He wants to meet the killer to know who paid him to do the dirty deed. He has to take care of a supervised visit between Molly Flannigan and her biological mother before visiting the prison which he successfully manages to accomplish.
