    excellent story

    How well do you know a person? Your sister or friends or even your family? After reading this book the only thing I’m sure about it that you know nothing really about any other than yourself. The story about Livia Cutter’s search after her sister was an intense and very suspenseful one. I hadn’t read anything by Charlie Donlea before I grabbed this book and it was a pleasant surprise. There were so many twists and turns in this book that it was a mystery till the very end. I had a lot of suspects the book, but when the real one was presented - well, I did not see that coming. “The Girl Who Was Taken” will stay in my memory as one of my favorite reads this year and I highly recommend to everyone loving a good thriller with an unsuspected ending. I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. Thanks to NetGalley and Kensington Books!

    A Story that will Stay with You

    This is a black story pieced together with fragments from different times involving different characters. The writing is clear and helps to create good mental images. As the plot unfolds various characters seem to be the possible villain, but the unveiling of the monster is a real surprise. The author manages to cover much physical torture, violence and sex without becoming too graphic. All of the principle characters are developed in depth and show the good and bad features of real people, Perhaps the strongest point of this book is the reality of the characters involved. The book is engrossing, and the ending is a real surprise.

    Capture & Keep

    "The Girl Who Was Taken" Chronicles the trail taken by pathologist Livia Cutty to locate her sister Nicole. Novel chapters sweep back and forth in time from abduction to a year in the future and back again. Also different character narratives give depth to this crime drama and add insight to happenings and personality traits. Normally these techniques would be confusing but Donlea has a style and ease of writing that is effortless to understand. Look forward to more from this author. This would make a great movie! "A copy of this book was provided by Kensington Books Via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read and my comments here are my honest opinion.

    Nicely Written Twister

    I'm not a huge fan of this genre and subject matter, but I did find this book very enjoyable. It's an easy to read, suspenseful page turner that keeps the reader guessing until the end.
