4.5 - Possible Spoilers in Review
on 30 September 2013
This is a mystery about every new mothers worse nightmare. What if right after you've delivered your baby; the babe not more than 20 hours old - someone stole the baby from the hospitals nursery?
And that along with some interesting side stories that have to do with Pete, Rina and Cindy.
Rina has just had her baby and is dealing with some very personal issues, when another baby goes missing from the hospital. Cindy just happens to be with her new sibling in the nursery when this happens and is being treated as a sort of witness. It is actually very hard to recap this novel, since it was such an emotional one.
There is not a lot of action, and in the Decker novels there very rarely is, but there is a lot of interesting psychological twists and turns... not too many red herrings, but a lot of interesting conclusions to the main story and all the off-shoot stories.
The characters a very well drawn, as usual - even the ones we don't see all that often.
The author never muddies the story by over-explaining things(looks, clothing background etc).
This is a heart stopping emotional roller-coaster of a read.
