After learning that her estranged mother is dying, Darby Thorne sets out in the middle of a fierce snowstorm in her old Honda, hoping to get to Utah in time to say good-bye. But the weather halts her plans and deposits her in a Colorado rest area to wait out the blizzard. There she meets other stranded travelers: nice guy Ashley, middle-aged cousins Ed and Sandi, and creepy man-boy Lars. While trying to make a phone call in the parking lot, she matches up the cars with their owners. A snow-covered van gives her pause. Peeking through the vehicle's window, she spies a child's hand reaching out through the bars of a dog cage. Can she believe what she's seeing? Which one of the people inside is the monster behind this, and how can she rescue the child? With minimal resources at her disposal, Darby must flush out the kidnapper, try to rescue the little girl, and survive the night.
VERDICT This well-written, fast-paced thriller by Adams (Eyeshot; Our Last Night) has enough twists to ensure an enjoyable read for even the most seasoned suspense fans. Purchase where B.A. Paris's titles are popular. [See Prepub Alert, 7/30/18.]
