Product Description

Product Description

SHE ONLY STEPPED OUTSIDE FOR A MINUTE...
But a minute was all it took to turn Jean Kingsley's world upside down—a minute she'd regret for the rest of her life.

STEPPING INTO HER WORST NIGHTMARE...
Because when she returned, she found an open bedroom window and her three-year-old son, Nathan, gone. The boy would never be seen again.

A NIGHTMARE THAT ONLY BECAME WORSE.
A tip leads detectives to the killer, a repeat sex offender, and inside his apartment, a gruesome discovery. A slam-dunk trial sends him off to death row, then several years later, to the electric chair.

CASE CLOSED. JUSTICE SERVED...OR WAS IT?
Now, more than thirty years later, Patrick Bannister unwittingly stumbles across evidence among his dead mother's belongings—it paints her as the killer and her brother, a wealthy and powerful senator, as the one pulling the strings.

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED TO NATHAN KINGSLEY?
There's a hole in the case a mile wide, and Patrick is determined to close it. But what he doesn't know is that the closer he moves toward the truth, the more he's putting his life on the line, that he’s become the hunted. Someone's hiding a dark secret and will stop at nothing to keep it that way.

The clock is ticking, the walls are closing, and the stakes are getting higher as he races to find a killer—one who's hot on his trail. One who's out for his blood.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Lion, the Lamb, the Hunted... 19 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An unusual title for a book....but a nice little thriller, not too taxing but has a fabulous ending!

Patrick was horrifically emotionally and mentally abused during his childhood by his 'mother' and flashbacks to this time are told throughout the book making for uncomfortable reading...

All grown up Patrick is now a reporter who returns home when his 'mother' dies and finds some mementos tucked away in a box which he takes back with him. Amongst these items is a necklace which upon investigation and hindsight open up a whole can of worms. This sets him off on the trail of the disappearance/murder of a 3 year old boy, Nathan 30 years before.

The trail leads to some pretty terrifying moments as he teams up with CJ, another reporter friend and between the two of them stumble upon the shocking truth.

I have to admit I did not see this coming and in fact re-read that whole chapter so that I had it settled in my mind that what I had read was exactly what I had read!

Brilliantly finished off with all the loose ends neatly tied up so a big thanks to Mr Kaufman for his considerable skill at story telling.

Initially not a fantastic thriller but certainly well plotted and thought out so I would recommend you read it for yourself, you will find it as enthralling as I did.

Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 3 April 2012
By krg
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Finished reading this in a couple of days and thought it was a very well written book that keeps you on the edge of your seat wanting to know what will happen next.
The story follows Patrick who is a reporter looking into the disappearence and murder of a 3 year old boy several years ago in a small town. The trouble is, it's the sort of town where everyone knows everybody else's business and it's not long before it seems like someone is trying to stop him from finding out the truth.
There are also flashbacks to Patrick's unhappy childhood, which doesn't help him to trust anyone now.
The ending is quite unexpected - I did wonder if it might be earlier in the book but it still came as a surprise in the way it's told.
The only thing I was a bit disappointed by was I thought he should have visited one of the characters again at the end but doesn't seem to do so.....other than that I would highly recommend downloading it as soon as possible!

3.0 out of 5 stars The lion ,The lamb and the hunted 27 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Never heard of this author before but was interested in a review of the book.The story was okay but lacked the sort of grab i expected from the title of the book. I will look out for more books by the author as this one probably just missed the mark.

This is the first book I've read by this author, but it won't be the last, I loved it.I thought it was fast paced, and exciting, and I liked the main character, it was a proper whodunnit, and kept me guessing.Very good entertaining read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally a book that caught my attention. 25 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After having read loads of mediocre books in the last few months, I finally stumbled across the lion, the lamb and the hunted. I felt for the main character and loved reading about his intriguing childhood and even though I predicted one of the major plot twists the style of writing managed to draw me in completely. I'll be on the lookout for more books from Mr. Kaufmann.

I quite enjoyed this book although it wasn't terribly exciting. I certainly did not guess the final twist, which was quite clever.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad read 18 May 2012
By Mags
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I quite liked this book and found the concept intriging.

The storyline was good, as was the writing, but the "mystery" was somewhat predictable.

Overall not a bad read.
