IT ONLY TAKES A MOMENT
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Suspense
Bestselling author Clark has another winner with this nail-biting story of a child's kidnapping. There are suspects galore, tangled plots, raw emotions and details of the dangers of a public life when it involves family. Pages whip by, and it's impossible to put down before you come to the final surprise. The characterization isn't deep, but the excitement and tension make up for it. The ending is unexpected.
The life of Eliza Blake, the host of a top-rated morning news show, is thrown into turmoil when her 7-year-old daughter is kidnapped. Although the police and the FBI are both on the case, and the nation is tuned to the 24-hour coverage that results, there are no leads. A number of suspects are guilty of something, so Eliza and her friends, not willing to let the situation continue, join forces with the Sunrise Suspense Society to find the culprit. (MORROW, Aug., 352 pp., $24.95)
