This is the third book in this series and unfortunatly the last.. I would really love to read a book about each of the Kincaid siblings :)

Lucy Kincaid, the youngest of the Kincaid breed has been kidnapped on her graduation day by an online predator and made her family frantic.

Then they discover that she is being broadcasted live on the Internet via a live feed somewhere anonymous, with less than 48 hours to live and a vote to which way the viewers wish she meets her end!

Kate Donovan is a former FBI agent who has been tracking this kidnapper/murderer "Trask" for over 5 years with no luck. After a sting going bad ending up with her lover Evan and her partner Paige dead, she went into hiding.. But the Kincaids find her and ask her cooperation to catch this so-called Trask. All they know him by is by the nickname .. he seems not to exist anywhere!

Dillon Kincaid the forensic phsycologist is trying hard to understand the motives of Trask, so he digs into Trask's background and childhood to try to find out who he really is.. trying to think like Trask to know what he might or might not do.. to understand his way of thinking and his motives, to try to save his sister's life!

Will they be able to catch him before Lucy's time is up? Is she really his goal or does he want more? Could Kate fight her own demons and find peace again?

This book was a roller coaster from the beginning, true that it took me a while to read but that was because I was very busy.. it was so hard to put down but I just had to do it.. Everytime I think everything is going to be fine, something happens and changes everything..

I really wish Ms. Brennan would consider more books in this series.. I really need to know what happens to Patrick :)

Quotes I liked from the book..

His head was bandaged, and for some reason that bothered her more than anything. It made everything more real. That he'd had brain surgery because of the explosion that nearly killed him. That he was in a coma and might not survive.

He couldn't look at her with pity, he wouldn't tell her everything would be all right. He wouldn't offer her food or suggest that she get some sleep.

"It just proves that it doesn't matter how smart or careful you are; if a predator wants you he'll find a way."

Haven't heard about her before, but it does sounds thrilling.

Becky W. said...

This sounds really good! Nice review! Do I need to start at the beginning of the series or do the books stand on their own?

Allison Brennan said...

Hi Desert Rose:

I'm so glad you enjoyed this book. I just sold a Lucy Kincaid series that starts in October of 2010.

Nelia Kincaid has a secondary role in PLAYING DEAD and Jack Kincaid is the hero of SUDDEN DEATH. Patrick will be recurring character in Lucy's series.

I hope you enjoy her other books.

Beth F said...

I haven't heard of this either, but I think I want to read the series. Great review!!

DeSeRt RoSe said...

Blodeuedd, it is very thrilling :) you should try it out!

Becky, they are stand alone but with the recurring characters it would be better to read it in order because the events happen in sequence.. and you would really feel for the Kincaids and know their personalities much better .. I wouldn't have read them any other way :)

Ms. Brennan, It is such a wonderful surprise to find you here :) I'm honored!
I'm really happy to know that the Kincaids will be recurring in other novels.. specially Patrick :) thanks for the tip, I appreciate it!
I will be sure to get these books and will be patiently awaiting Lucy's series :) but please don't keep us waiting much :)

The Book Resort, I will be getting her other books becuase I'm definitly a fan :)

Beth, thanks, and it was such a ride :) I really highly recommend it!

Allison Brennan's work is the best. I have yet to read a book by her and I don't absolutely love. I hope everyone who reads your review will pick up a copy of any of her books. They're in for quite a treat.
