The prologue between two 'businessmen' agreeing a 'trade' regarding the delivery of 'products' lets you know immediately just who the women will have to deal with. Gripping seems almost the wrong word for the novel, due to its real life relevance. Some chapters give insight into the victims, others tell the story from a more distant perspective, which for me contrasted really well how the personal experience is compared to the 'story' of an abduction.
Fortunately, in this fictionalised account, there is much that lightens the tone and helps the novel to steer clear of formula and predictability. A well composed book that stayed with me long after I put it down.
How does he know this?
He lived near the site of their disappearance when it happened—in the Sulphur Springs Valley area of Arizona. Although inspired by actual events, Stranger Abduction is a work of fiction, but I believe the author’s connection to this part of the country informs his writing. A riveting and grim storyline is tempered with his compassionate voice for the plight of the victims.
Humanity, loss, and hope are enduring themes and make for a powerful read.
