By Anne TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 15 Jun. 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
In 1990s Peru kidnapping is a routine risk for the wealthy. For Andres, when his wife disappears he at first thinks that she has left him as she has previously but then he receives a ransom request. To free his wife he will have to lose nearly everything he owns and question his past and his future.

This is a book about relationships and sacrifices with the kidnapping only acting as the background for a portrayal of the disintegration of a marriage and a reassessment of what is important. It is actually a slow moving book which seems to me to be emphasised by the fact that it is written in the present tense. The book concentrates almost exclusively on Andres with very little from Marabela's point of view. Unfortunately I didn't like Andres very much - I thought he was self-absorbed and pompous and so his suffering didn't mean as much to me as it might have. It might have been more effective to alternate his story with that of his wife all the way through the book rather than just at the end.

The question of what you would sacrifice to save a spouse and what effect that the sacrifice would have on you and the freed person in the future is an interesting one. I don't think that it was well examined here and the ending was rather inconclusive. I didn't get a feel for the politics behind the situation. The book concentrates almost exclusively on Andres but it might have been better if the consequences of the kidnapping on others was also part of the story. In the end the book didn't make the best of the storyline and I learned little about Peru as a country. I received a free copy of this book from the publishers via NetGalley.

This book takes you to many different places. It is about life, love, hope, dispair. The story is simple, about a kidnapping and the results, but the people involved are believable and the story is told in a way which makes you want to keep turning the pages to find the ending, whilst not wanting it to end at all. The writing is eloquent and paints simple pictures of the tale as it unfolds. A great read.

I chose this book as I've visited Lima where it's based. The developing kidnap issue is well portrayed though the last quarter does seem to peter out a little. But it's a first novel, after all. I'd like to know the author's experiences which seem to have led her to this topic.

I saw the ad for this book at least 50 times when firing up my kindle and ignored it. The I finally gave in to my curiosity. This little gem gripped me from the first page. A nice easy read with plenty of action, many twists and turns and a fairly unexpected ending. If you like a good suspense thriller give this a go with its heart warming tale and a bit of excitement.

I would recommend this book

It was a nice insight in Peru's turbulent times. The plot was attention-capturing butthe ending was a bit weak. Therefore four stars
