It was the perfect crime until she refused to be the perfect victim.
This was a NO put down book.. Just keeped you reading. My understanding there was a movie made after this book . I cannot wait to see the movie now. . It calle TRAPPED and has Kevin Bacon in it..
If you have read Iles "24 Hours" don't order this book. I was disappointed to find that this book and 24 hrs were one and the same. If you haven't read 24 hrs, then by all means buy it. It really is a good book that will keep you rooting for the victims. An"on the edge of your seat' kind of book that interested long after you have put the book down.
Andy C. reviewed Trapped (aka 24 Hours) (Mississippi, Bk 2) on
I did not know this was the same book as 24 Hours which I had read some time ago. But I enjoyed it the second time almost as much as the first read. Being from MS, I could identify with a lot of the locations. Another great, suspension filled book filled with typical Greg Iles characters that you will not want to put down till completed.
24 hours - that's how long it takes a madman to pull off the perfect crime. He's done it before, he'll do it again, and on one can stop him. But this time, he's picked the worng family to terrorize. Will and Karen Jennings are not going to watch helplessly as he victimizes them. And they are not going to let him get away with it. This is a controversial book. Go to amazon.com for several reviews.
I haven't read this book, but Greg Iles is an excellent author, and I usually enjoy everything he writes. A man who breaks into a home and terrorizes the family, who are a lot more resiliant that he thought. The family does prevail, and it was made into a movie.
This well written novel is a page turner! It is your worst nightmare where you are helpless, your child has been kidnapped, your physician husband is100s of miles away. This is a âPerfect Crimeâ you are told by your captor. I've done this 5 times before & the kid always makes it through.I want cash, you have it. Just follow my instructions & you'll have your kid back tomorrow morning. The slight hiccup in the perfect crime-the kidnappers crime is their not knowing that the child has juvenile diabetes! She didn't get her injection or get her blood sugar checked before she was taken out of her home. The mother refused to be the perfect captive & now the perfectly timed terror takes on a different spin. (Don't read if you need to get up early! Wasn't kidding about âpage turnerâ!)
