Summary

Megan's life isn't going well. It's also about to get worse. A drunken joke has left her having to see a tedious therapist. In his absence, the dynamically different Dr Peters takes over - or so Megan thinks. He manages to shock her innermost secrets out of her, and then he whacks a syringe into her arm before she has time to cry out. Aaron Matthews, alias Dr Peters, isn't having the best of times, either. Chance keeps sabotaging Megan's meticulously planned abduction. If he believed in luck, he'd be cursing his. However, his plan's far too intricately lay to let Megan's friends and relatives tamper with it. Of course, their meddling could provoke one of his moods, and who knows what that could mean for Megan?

Lacking the usual Deaver magic.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Not sure because it lacked so much..... a good plot, interesting characters, any real strategy.

What could Jeffery Deaver have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I know it was written early in his career so I imagine he's already done that.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Any with Connie in them because amongst the very slim pickings he was the most realistic.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Liked Connie.

Any additional comments?

Take out the references to sex, drugs, and swearing and this book reads like something out of Scooby Doo. Weak weak plot.

The narrator has a very difficult voice to enjoy.

I love Jeffrey Deaver & although this is still a good read, in my opinion it’s not one of his best. The narrator has an extremely grating, lethargic voice which I found very difficult to concentrate on. Aside from my personal dislike of his voice, I also think him a poor narrator with little intonation or differentiation between characters. For me this it ruined the book somewhat & I therefore wouldn’t recommend this narration.
