A ghostly Twist to a kidnapping story.
The premise of the story immediately drew me in. After all, there are few things that are more terrifying than losing a loved one to a kidnapper. In the case of Tardif’s novel, it’s Sadie O’Connell’s son, Sam, who's whisked away in the middle of the night, with very few clues that are left behind. Besides the main plot that involves the kidnapping, is the interesting back story of corruption and betrayal that Tardif excellently pulled off, keeping it strong enough to maintain the flow where similar stories may drag. I won’t write anything else about the story at the risk of spoiling it. But all in all, it’s a moving, edge-of-your-seat suspense with a ghostly twist, guaranteed to keep you guessing until the end.
