You get to meet a few characters in the book that all bring something new and exciting to the plot. First, there is a nine-year-old girl, Janine, who gets snatched during a robbery at a convenience store near Boston. What started as just a robbery turned out to become a complicated kidnapping crime that resulted in a half-million-dollar ransom.
This demand forces the Stearns, Janine’s parents, to sell their land in the suburbs so that they can pay the ransom. Just as they were going to get their daughter back an unexpected event results in a man killed and Janine still in the hands of the kidnappers.
This is the part of the book review of The Guardian where you get to meet one of the more important characters in the book that will have a shot at rescuing the girl. It is Janine’s uncle and Greg’s brother, Ross.
He has the biggest chance of getting their daughter back because he knows the ways of the criminals as he had spent some time in prison himself and now has some contacts from the criminal world that could be of very big assistance to him. Ross asks for help from his friends from prison to lure the kidnappers into a well thought out trap that just might do the trick.
But it’s not all straightforward in this novel as you can see from this review of The Guardian as Ross and his pals discover that there is an elaborate conspiracy behind the abduction of Janine and things get even more complicated from there. Bill also doesn’t forget to add some of the action in his pages as he describes thrilling scenes with thrilling and dangerous chases through Boston.
Lots of killing can be found in this thriller novel, lots of blood-filled action, and a huge chunk of mystery as they uncover the unfolding plot behind the abduction of the Stearns’ daughter.
