…and I haven’t even read it yet. I’m still debating whether I want to. Not because I doubt it’s good — it has received rave reviews — but I’m afraid I may never leave the house or help anyone ever again. I’ll just turn into myself and never offer assistance to even the most needy, especially when my two small kids are with me.
What book is it? Cruelty to Innocents: The 911 Abductions, by DJ Weaver & CK Webb.
Here’s the premise, according to the publisher section on Amazon:
What if you were in your car alone with your small child and you came upon an emergency scene? Would you stop to help? What if, while you are trying to assist a victim of an accident or mugging, you left your young child alone in the car, thinking he or she would be safe. What if, instead of help, the call to 911 brought a terrifying, sinister result?
Someone’s abducting children from 911 emergency scenes in Aberdeen, Maryland, while their parents call for help and lend aid to accident victims. Someone who’s also listening in, is a monster and vicious child abductor. In the midst of the chaos and confusion of the scene, that monster slips in and steals the innocent children leaving behind no trace for authorities.
Sloanne Kelly is unprepared for what awaits in her hometown as she travels back to Maryland. Her goddaughter is one of the victims and the clock is ticking. Together with her best friend and a local fireman, Shawn Tyler, Sloanne will face the most insidious of criminals and fight to recover the children before there is anymore, Cruelty to Innocents.
I’ve downloaded the sample copy for my Kindle, wary that I might not make it through the whole thing and still sleep at night. Granted, it’s only $2.99 for the e-version. But at what price, sleep? [Shiver!]
