I like this whole series of books. BUT out of the series this is the one I like the least. I think the plot and story would have been as gripping and and perhaps even better if the child in the story had only been kidnapped and being hunted. I just felt there was no reason to add in the knowlage of sexual assault. I don't know. When I was reading the story I just felt that part could have been left out, and the book wouldn't have been lacking and the story outcome/ending would have been the same.
Other then that the story was good. It was a page turner and you really wanted the main character to kick the bad guy's butts.
Savich and Sherlock team up with Ramsey Hunt to save a little girl. Then they have to figure out why she is a 'Target'. This one will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Another top flight suspense/romance offering from one of the VERY BEST storytellers active today, and does it without the excessive sex and gore.
Coulter continues the suspense-filled series she began with The Cove (1996) and The Maze (1997), even bringing in some of the same characters. Her latest is set in the Colorado mountains, where Judge Ramsey Hunt has fled to recuperate after being forced to shoot a man during a melee in his courtroom. But his dream of peace and quiet is shattered when he discovers an unconscious, beaten, and sexually abused little girl who is too traumatized to speak. Reluctant to subject her to any more terror, Ramsey refrains from going to the authorities and cares for her himself. But once again, violence intrudes, first when two gunmen attempt to take the girl, and then when her mother, Molly, appears, ready to kill the man she believes is the kidnapper. Miraculously, Emma regains her voice in the nick of time, so Molly and Ramsey join forces and attempt to solve the mystery of her abduction. Emma is a target for any of a number of reasons--her father is a famous rock star with a gambling problem, and her grandfather is a Chicago Mob boss--and Coulter, who doesn't stint on humor or romance, keeps readers guessing.
Excellent, Excellent! Some of Coulter's books rambled a bit but not this one. A NY Times Bestseller and deserves it.
