A baby is abducted and his mother knocked down trying to prevent the inevitable. She is comatose and the police have little but a blurred CCTV image of the van involved. A local reporter, after a scoop, is onto the case too and so the tension mounts. Another fast paced thriller to get your heart pounding.

Synopsis

Every Fear by Rick Mofina

This is a blockbuster thriller that will make your heart race and leave your knuckles white. A new mother's worst nightmare Maria Colson left her baby Dylan outside the store for a few seconds. Then she sees the empty pram - Dylan has vanished without a trace. A journalist who needs a break Rookie reporter Jason Wade is under pressure to bring in a new story. Could the Colson kidnapping be it? But some of the pieces just don't add up. A detective on the case Detective Grace Garner is investigating the grizzly murder of a young woman - and the parallels with the kidnapping start to create a startling picture. Now Jason and Grace are hunting for the one piece of the puzzle that connects the baby's disappearance with a spine-tingling case of revenge. And whoever took little Dylan Colson is more dangerous than anyone imagined.

About the Author

Rick Mofina

Rick Mofina is a former crime reporter and the award-winning author of several acclaimed crime novels. He grew up east of Toronto, in Belleville, Ontario, Canada. He began writing fiction in grade school. At age 15, he sold his first short story to a U.S. magazine. In his teens he hitchhiked to California and wrote a novel about the experience. He has held jobs ranging from working at a horseracing track to delivering cars to Florida, before he attended Carleton University where he studied Journalism, English Literature, and American Detective Fiction.

He landed his first news job as a summer student at the Toronto Star, the same paper that once employed Ernest Hemingway. Rick then embarked on a career in journalism that spanned three decades in several newsrooms. His freelance crime stories have appeared around the world in such publications as the New York Times, Penthouse, Reader's Digest, Marie Claire, The South China Morning Post magazine and The Moscow Times.

His reporting has put him face-to-face with murderers on death row in Montana and Texas. He covered a horrific serial killing case in California, an armoured car heist in Las Vegas, the murders of police officers in Alberta, flown over Los Angeles with the LAPD, and gone on patrol with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police near the Arctic. He's also reported from the Caribbean, Africa, Qatar, and Kuwait's border with Iraq.

His book, BLOOD OF OTHERS won the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Novel; and the International Thriller Writers named his book, THE DYING HOUR (on-sale in the UK in September 2009), a finalist for an inaugural Thriller Award. His books have been praised by James Patterson, Dean Koontz, Michael Connelly, Jeffery Deaver, Lee Child, Nick Stone, Tess Gerritsen, and David Morrell.

Rick is based in Ottawa, Canada.
