Five Days in Summer by Kate Pepper
You know it's going to be bad: The teaser on the back tells you right up front that Emily Parker won't come home from the grocery store. You aren't warned, however, how little effort the Cape Cod police will put into looking for her. After all, she's a msising adult. You aren't warned about the havoc visited upon a young family when their mother, and primary caregiver, isn't available. You aren't warned about the evil this particular kidnapper inflicts on his victims. You'll find yourself pulling for Emily, her frantic husband Will, and her three young children. You'll warm to retired FBI profiler John Geary and hope to see him again. This is an edge-of-your-seat suspense thriller that'll have you reading far into the night (after checking and re-checking your doors and windows).
