The Last Time She Saw Him
Thirty years ago, Julia’s brother was kidnapped from the room they shared and that was The Last Time She Saw Him. She has never been able to remember anything from that night, which has always haunted her and made her fearful for her own children. That fear becomes a reality when, on the anniversary of her brother’s abduction, her two-year-old son is kidnapped. Julia is in a race against time to find her son and perhaps discover what really happened to her brother as well.
Since I happen to have a two-year-old as well, this story did not help the fears already common to a young mother. But that aside, it was a good thriller. The only downside was that you never find out what happened to her brother, which I guess is realistic, but not really what you want in a mystery. Even knowing her backstory, it was really hard to like Julia for a while. I don’t think I started caring about her until her child was kidnapped. Then I didn’t care who she was, I just wanted her to get him back.
An entertaining thriller, but it does leave you hanging in the end.
