Psychological aftermath of kidnapping handled sensitively Jan. 13 1999
By Mrs. Olsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Mrs. Peyton approaches the well-worn kidnapping genre from a fresh angle, delving into the psychological aftermath experienced by the victim. Anti-hero Jonathan Meredith, featured in several of her other books, is compelled by a guilty conscience into seeking out his abductors. Peyton's prose is, as always with her contemporary ya's, fresh and clear. The ultimate resolution is clever and satisfying.

Victim to Victor Aug. 1 2000
By Amber Hetrick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
16-year-old Jonathan Meredith really goes from the poor victim to the victor in this book. Any Junior to Senior High student would love this action and drama filled story. Jonathan is kidnapped on his way home from school and after three terrifying days is released only to find a sort of hostility at home about the ransom money lost. He finds and confronts his abductor and feels more confident about himself and proves to be a hero.
