Product Description

Product Description

Another homicide has rocked the small town of Fallsburg, New York. In a cabin nestled deep in the woods, two male victims are discovered, both gunshot victims. One is deceased the other one is barely alive. But it is not the murder itself that has detectives Jean Whitley and her new partner Marty Keal frantic to find out the answers of what occurred in that cabin, but it is the identities of the two small children also found at the scene. One child is quickly identified, but the other, a young boy, remains a mystery. The only one with possible answers is the man who lays critically wounded and unconscious in the hospital, because the unidentified boy either cannot or will not speak. What happened in that cabin that left one man dead and another barely hanging on...?

What is stolen? Children, innocence, and identities. At the opening, we have a cabin in the woods and a man who has been fatally shot; another man who is shot and transported to the hospital; and two children. One child is a little girl who is fairly quickly identified and returned to her parents after months with a pedophile. The other is a young boy with secrets because he either can’t or won’t talk. He does have vocal cords as he ran through the woods hollering something rather unintelligible. He continues to be a runner when they take him to the hospital and he runs smack dab into Detective Marty Keal. He’s also a biter; just ask Marty. Dr. Hope Rubin, child psychiatrist, gets pulled back into this book of the series to work with the child while Marty and Detective Jean Moran try to put the pieces together of who is who, and find the shooter who is still missing. When the shooter reappears, he’s holding hostages and has some rather odd demands.

Stolen is the third in the series (known as Marty Keal series per Goodreads). It follows A Child is Torn and Faceless. All three books have focused on disturbing issues of children in trouble. They have all been provocative reads. The first two give us Detectives Marty Keal, Jean Whitley, Joe Moran, and Dr. Hope Rubin. Detective Joe Moran has been effectively written out of the series this time. Each book could be read as a standalone, but if you like to watch the character development from one to the next, you’d probably want to read them in order. One thing: The child develops a closeness to Marty and Hope and they take him into their home on a temporary basis. I didn’t think social services would allow that and so it was a bit unrealistic. I rated Stolen at 4 out of 5.

Stolen was my third book from Dawn Kopman Whidden. I have to say this was an epic read! This story hit all of my emotions. I cried for the tortured and abused children and other victims that fell prey to such a horrific psychopath living in a cabin hiding so many secrets for years. When hikers find a dead body, an injured young man and two young children in the woods in Fallsburg, New York Detective Jean Whitley and her partner Marty Keal are on the scene once again. And there is Marty’s fiancee Hope who is having some issues of her own. They try to identify two young children who were lucky enough to come out of this alive. The youngest child was soon to be identified but would be scarred for life at the hands of one evil Fred Blakely. The other little boy remained a mystery as he appears to be a wild child who does not speak. The pieces of this murder mystery all come together to find out all is not as it seems. This story is woven so well as secrets will come to be revealed and weakened relationships mended.There is a surprise twist that left me shocked! I am just waiting for the movie to be made. This is one, not to be missed!

I found this book well written. The story line was a little slow in places, but I kept reading and can say I enjoyed the read.

I won a copy of "Stolen" by Dawn Kopman Whidden, though the Goodreads Giveaway Contest, in exchange for an honest review. This is the third and last novel in this psychological mystery thriller series. and by my opinion...the Best!

I must say I was blown away with another gripping murder story. I was happy to see the return of characters from her first novel, "A Child is Torn: Innocence Lost", and her second novel, "Faceless A Mystery". Once again we find homicide detective Jean Whitley and her partner Marty Keal together again on the trail of a murder. Jean, Marty, Marty's dad "The Captain" and Hope are back, along with a few of the other characters, to solve what turns out to be a 25 year old mystery.

This is a fast-paced novel that deals with some very disturbing issues of society: child abduction, sexual abuse and pedophilia. I give the author credit for first attempting to deal with these issues in a novel as well as treating these issues with utmost respect, and while bringing these issues to the forefront, show the consequences of missing and exploited children.

The setting for this novel, is the small town of Fallsburg, New York, where numerous 911 calls were received by a group of local hunters in the woods. They recently witnessed a small child, a boy, shirtless and shoe-less, running and screaming through the woods, multiple gunshots fired, a cabin with a gunshot victim, and another victim who is deceased.

When police arrived they found another young child, a girl around the age of 4 or five, Michaelah, in the small cabin in a back room... a child shaking on a in a room with a video camera on a tripod. I don't want to imagine what this child endured!

The body of the deceased man was later identified as Archie Blakely, convicted of molestation of a seven year old boy and had served a short term in prison. But there was another gunshot victim, identified as Troy Blakley, Archie's son. But WHO was the shooter? WHERE is the weapon? Is anyone else involved?

This story grabs a hold of you right from the beginning and grips you until you know the truth. Hold on to your seat...you are in for a great treat! Thank you Dawn for allowing me to read your three novels...and I will be waiting for your next novel.

HASH(0x9c4a3240) out of 5 stars Worth A Read April 13 2015
By Annie Athens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I do agree with others that this author definitely needs a better editor. I try to ignore obvious errors in books by new authors as so many simply can't afford a good editor and rely on friends and family. There is even an error with the name of the wrong brother in one instance. I was also irritated at the number of times that phrases and comments were repeated, and some dialogue was stilted. Saying that though, let's be fair and judge the book on the actual story. I thought this was intersting and exciting enough to hold the reader. I finished the book and liked the ending.
I would also add that I do admire Ms Whidden for adding the comments ater the novel regarding missing children. Yes we all recall when we could play quite safely in gardens and streets and it's very sad that children in general have lost so much freedom, even in the UK and our villages.

HASH(0x9c4a33e4) out of 5 stars I have read her first two books and truly enjoyed each of them July 6 2014
By Cheryl Collier Lercher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I must thank Dawn Kopman Whidden for asking me to read her newest book and write an honest review. I have read her first two books and truly enjoyed each of them. Stolen is no different. From the very first page I was drawn into what is an all-too-real scenario. Once again Dawn tackled a difficult topic and one which may not be more prevalent in today's society but is most assuredly more recognized. Abuse, pedophilia, kidnapping - all are realistically dealt with in this third novel. Her characters are so believable that I found myself feeling as if I knew many of them as friends, co-workers, neighbors, and found myself fearing the main protagonist even though I knew that he couldn't hurt me or anyone else. Dawn's plots have become increasingly well drawn and this one kept me reading when I should have been doing other things. One of the brilliant parts of Dawn's successive books is that while each book stands alone, characters and some pieces of story line carry forth into the next novel. If you need a book to take on vacation or staycation or simply to lose yourself in, this is the one.

I just love this authors books. When I read her very first book, I was hooked and it went into my top 10 thrillers of last year [and I reads loads as a reviewer!]

Reading her second one, we met some of the characters from her first book.

STOLEN is intense, this author is an author you really should look out for as she really can relate a tale. It keeps your attention, you want to just sit and read it from cover to cover and do nothing else until you have finished it. I know I stayed up very late to finish this book.

I love the cover, it depicts the story inside very well.

I love a good mystery/thriller.

Although all of Dawn Kopman Whidden books are not a series, you will find her main character popping up in each, but you do not have to read them in order.

I adored it. This is another ebook that I will definitely be buying in paperback to keep.

Thanks to the author for allowing me to beta read this before the final version.
