I'm not a big John Case fan and the first third or so of this book just reinforced my enthusiasm. I just wanted to shout, "Get on with it, already!" But, having endured that much, I soldiered on to the end. And it ended. Just ... ended. After getting involved the various characters I expected another chapter or two to wrap it all up. Alas, it was not to be.

Top notch mystery/thriller. He does a good job making the clues work, and of revealing the plot slowly enough to keep you guessing but not bogging down. It's a bit too handy in the end and the reason behind the staged clues is never quite explained, but the characters are all true and the premise is excellent.

A television news reporter goes to a Rennaisance festival with his young twin sons. One minute they are near him, and the next minute, they are gone. The kidnapper has made no ransom demands and time passes. It's up to the father to find out what happened to his boys.

This is one of the best thrillers I have read lately. The tension and suspense never wavers during the entire book.

Excellent mystery

LOVED it! I have been to the Renaissance Festival in MD., so I appreciated the description of the initial setting. Knowing that fear of losing one's kids in a split second made my heart race. The story delves into Voodoo and magic and some aspects of life I can't even pretend to understand. I'm glad to appreciate a different perspective through the safety of a book! It was a great story. I really have enjoyed this author.
