LoveReading View on Taken

A gripping read. As a parent this must be one of our worst night nightmares. One minute our child is with us, the next gone - that dreadful sinking, sick feeling is described so realistically.

Disappeared. Kidnapped. Chris Jordan takes us through every emotion that we would no doubt feel. This is a far fetched (or is it?) scenario which shows just how far a parent would go to get their child back. Well drawn, interesting characters. Good dialogue and fast paced. This book was one of the best we have read for a long while. It would make a terrific movie!

Taken Synopsis

How far would you go to save the life of your child? No parent believes it can happen to them - their child taken from a crowded playing field, from right under their nose. But as widowed mother Kate Bickford discovers, everything can change in the blink of an eye.

One minute her amazing, maddening son Tommy is begging for ice cream. Then in a terrible instant, he's gone.

As her comfortable life collapses as precious seconds tick by, and Kate is horrified to uncover the terrible secret she and her son share with a killer.

Crammed with staggering suspense, breakneck pace and thrilling twists, taken will leave you reeling.
