1.5 stars :-/It wasn't realistic. I'm a stickler on books needing to portray a real life situation correctly. As in this case, the protocol on how the cops, the media, and, if needed, the FBI, would handle this high profile kidnapping was... lacking. The details were limited and what was handled in this book seemed so blasé. Same with the mothers attitude. Some points, many points really, in the book, she did not seem to .... Portray a character whose devastated by her children's disappearance. I don't know. Wasn't my cup of coffee sadly. Wasn't bad, I just need more realistic details and more developed characters.
