A Book Review


Abducted at age sixteen, Shannon finally escapes her captures eleven years later. Determined to see justice done, She’s planned everything out to the smallest detail, starting with who she would trust with the information she has to share. She’s going to bring the whole organization down, one brick at a time. But first she must learn the truth.

Will the truth set her free or be the end of everything she holds dear?

The premise of this novel intrigued me. I can’t fathom what it would be like to have gone through everything Shannon did. I know I wouldn’t have been as strong as she was, or thought things through in the same way.

While I enjoyed putting the pieces of this puzzling story together, one think I hated was that the Shannon knew so much, but refused to share it with us. It was, at times, completely infuriating. I love a good mystery, but throughout the book, I felt like I was being denied information unnecessarily. Yes, the not knowing heightened the drama, but sometimes if felt like false drama because of it.

That being said, this book was very interesting to read. I am sure fans of Dee Henderson’s new books will not be disappointed.

TakenAn investigator who knows tragic loss firsthand,
and his new client, missing far too long…

Abducted at the age of sixteen and coerced into assisting the Jacoby crime family, Shannon Bliss has finally found a way out. She desperately wants to resume some semblance of normal life, but she also knows she has some unfinished business to attend to. She might have enough evidence to put her captors behind bars for a very long time.

When Shannon contacts private investigator Matthew Dane, a former cop, to help her navigate her reentry into society, he quickly discovers that gaining her freedom doesn’t mean her troubles are over. If the Jacoby family learns she is still alive, they’ll stop at nothing to silence her.

If justice is to be done, and if Shannon’s life is ever to get on track again, Matthew will need to discover exactly what happened to her–even if it means stirring up a hornet’s nest of secrets.
