Mark Gimenez is a wizard at whipping out realistic stories out of uncommon incidents. The Abduction is a mind-blowing thriller and one to surely keep you on the edge till you finish the book.
This novel is not a legal thriller like other Gimenez offerings, but a very fast-paced drama that surrounds the kidnap and rescue of a small girl from the hands of the evil. This book ties so many random events into one beautifully linked master event and has the reader hooked to it till the end.
A father, who is a geek in the computer field and about to earn billions in pay off, is turned into a strong character within a short span. He loses his cowardice out of the vast love only a parent can shower on a child. This is what happens here and the child’s father becomes a real man to bring his daughter back.
The mother on the other hand has suffered greatly at the hands of evil in the past and clings to it. She is so damaged by the wrongs in her ife that she is even unable to love her husband. But, the kidnapping changes her too.
The grandpa and his bravery are extra-ordinary. The author shows how soldiers suffer even after the war is over in heart-rending descriptions of their post-war lives.
The child herself become wise beyond her years after the ordeal. Even during the kidnap, the way she handles herself is brilliant.
The action is relentless, what with plans to assassinate the President, destroy war evidence and what not! This novel has its dose of humor too. Read this extra-awesome thriller and have a fantastic evening!
