The Abduction by Mark Gimenez

Synopsis :

When hotshot lawyer Elizabeth Brice turns up to collect her daughter Grace from football practice, the coach tells her she needn’t have bothered, as Grace’s uncle has already picked her up.

The only problem is – Grace has no uncles.

And so begins a furious race against time to save Grace from unknown kidnappers. Grace’s internet geek father John leads the search, forced to unite with his terrifying wife and even more terrifying father Ben, a battle-hardened Vietnam Veteran.

Somehow they must find Grace before it is too late. But secrets from the past make the little girl’s survival more uncertain with every passing minute.....

The Abduction is interesting and it’s not just about rescuing an abducted girl but more the unexpected circumstances surrounding her disappearance. The author is extremely talented in bringing the suspense forward and keeping it so real that you would just want to keep on reading. Just when you thought you know where the story is heading, another curve ball is thrown at you.

The characters are well developed. You will like Col Ben Brice who turns to alcohol to escape his past. You will feel sorry for John Brice who has everything money can buy but not the love of his wife and you might feel angry at Elizabeth Brice for being such a tough nut but your opinion of her might changed further into the book.

Not many readers in this part of the world knew about Mark Gimenez. The local bookstores are just saturated with authors such as John Grisham, James Petterson, Sidney Sheldon. Let me tell you, go and read books by Mark Gimenez. He’s as good a writer as the others and even better than some.

I really enjoy his writing from the very first book which I read about 5 years ago, Colour of Law to The Perk and this. His other two books are The Common Lawyer and Accused (which is sequel to Colour of Law) which I have not read. To me, it’s just a matter of time before I do. And when I do, you can be sure I will share them with you.

This is the 2nd time I’m reading The Abduction since I bought it about 3 years ago. Go, get your copy and be thrilled.
