Book Review: Taken

Cover Art

From the Back:

An investigator who knows tragic loss firsthand,
and his new client, missing far too long...

Abducted at the age of sixteen and coerced into assisting the Jacoby crime family, Shannon Bliss has finally found a way out. She desperately wants to resume some semblance of normal life, but she also knows she has some unfinished business to attend to. She might have enough evidence to put her captors behind bars for a very long time.

When Shannon contacts private investigator Matthew Dane, a former cop, to help her navigate her reentry into society, he quickly discovers that gaining her freedom doesn't mean her troubles are over. If the Jacoby family learns she is still alive, they'll stop at nothing to silence her.

If justice is to be done, and if Shannon's life is ever to get on track again, Matthew will need to discover exactly what happened to her--even if it means stirring up a hornet's nest of secrets.

My Reflections:

Once again Dee Henderson had penned a Phenomenal novel with her latest book Taken.
Her writing style has the quality and infinite attention to detail that we don't often see.
The plot is complex, character line up impressive and level of interest is kept thought the story. That is impressive as this is a hefty book at over 400 spellbinding pages. It was such an absolute pleasure to read this novel.

Shannon Bliss was abducted at the tender age of 16. having escaped her captors 11 years later she is ready to try to put her life back in order and move on.

Matthew Dane may just be Shannon's ticket, a former police officer and private investigator, who's own daughter was also kidnapped. Can this man help Shannon confront her past, and will there be more to their relationship?

Taken is written from Matthew's point of view which gives this book a very unique perspective and feel. Readers are given insight on what it would be like to escape from such a heinous situation and just how hard it is to transition back to normal life, after such traumatic crime.

I loved how this story unfolds Taken is very much a layered, slow unavailing of a deep and meaningful plot.  I am confident in saying that if you are looking for a novel that will exceed your hopes you will not be disappointed in Henderson, newest book, Taken.

I received this book free of Charge in return for my honest review from Graf -Martin Communications, Thank you Graf Martin!
