Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Pinter's ambitious third Henry Parker novel opens as Daniel Linwood, 11, suddenly reappears on his family's front porch five years after being kidnapped. Parker, a young but seasoned New York Gazette reporter, snags an exclusive interview with Daniel and his overjoyed mother. But Daniel appears to have no recollection of his missing years, and something he absentmindedly says in the interview deeply rattles Parker—convincing him there's a sinister undercurrent to this feel-good story. Working with his ex-girlfriend, Legal Aid Society lawyer Amanda, Parker meets resistance from law enforcement officials, a popular politician and even his own editor. What he gradually uncovers involves seemingly disparate individuals with unexpected motives, desperate to keep their activities a secret. Parker's first-person voice dominates: it lists between Parker as gritty, desensitized journalist and young romantic who wants little more than to spend the rest of his life with one woman. The emotional dichotomy makes Parker a captivating and complex protagonist, one whose pithy observations about New York are dead on. Pinter's chunky plot, rapid pacing and credible dialogue do the rest. (Aug.)

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Six months has passed since New York Legal Aid attorney Amanda Davies ended her relationship with New York Gazette reporter Henry Parker because he chose work over her. Since getting a job on the newspaper, his life turned hectic and dangerous but not just for him; anyone close to him including Amanda (see THE MARK).

However, the investigative reporter puts his personal life on hold again when he is given an incredible exclusive. Five years ago, then six year old Daniel Linwood was kidnapped; the case went cold until now. Suddenly eleven years old Daniel has come home. He remembers nothing as to where he has been, what happened to him, or even how he ended up back at his family's house. Henry interviews the child, but learns nothing about the mystery from the kid. He and Amanda soon learn that other children have been abducted and ultimately returned. As they dig deeper, an unknown adversary is willing to kill the nosy journalist and his former girlfriend to prevent the truth from surfacing.

The latest Henry Parker investigative tale is an exciting whodunit as the hero and his ex girlfriend team up on the case. Henry is terrific as his inquiries leave him confused with more unanswered questions; his first hand account enhances his bewilderment and that of the audience as the motive is just out of reach. However, it is his sort of schizoid personality that makes him a superb character as he is a classic New York City cynic on the job and a closet romantic in his home. Fans will appreciate this entertaining suspense thriller with the right touch of sexual tension to augment a fine read.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By J. Michael Click on February 15, 2010
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Author Jason Pinter steers Henry Parker down a slightly different road in "The Stolen", the third book in the popular series about an investigative journalist who tends to become dangerously involved in the stories he is reporting. Here Henry runs into less action and derring-do than normal (although there are still ample quantites of both), and becomes more deeply entrenched in mystery and in the work of straightening out his private life.

The mystery is a real corker. A young boy, taken from his family, suddenly shows up years later with no memories of where he has been, what he's been doing, or who kidnapped him. Henry soon discovers a pattern involving other children who disappeared without a trace, and then eventually turned up, seemingly unharmed but with their memories erased. The course of the investigation reunites him with his ex Amanda, a child welfare advocate whom he had dumped out of concern when one of his previous cases put her in physical peril. The solution of the puzzle leads both Henry and Amanda into more danger than they have previously encountered, and prompts them to reassess the feasibility of their relationship.

Pinter is a very talented writer who has a way of hooking his readers into each new story within the first paragraphs, and then stringing them along - willingly and pleasurably - until the last page. He does have one problem that becomes obvious in this particular novel, and only gets worse throughout the next several books in the Henry Parker series. Pinter needs a more diligent proofreader. One page 183 of "The Stolen", he writes: "There were three doors, both closed." Huh? Such gaffes tend to disrupt the flow of the story, destroying the exciting pace that Pinter has worked so hard to establish.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'm one who very much appreciates those books which are true literature, but I can also appreciate and enjoy the pulp like page turners. Jason Pinter's books come closer to the latter category. I was itroduced to his books and his character, Henry Parker, in THE FURY which was very much the page turner, and then read the first book, THE MARK, another page turner. THE GUILTY was a slow down, and this book also is slower than THE MARK and THE FURY, but has more depth with the continuing characterizations of Paulina Cole and Jack O'Connell along with the progressive story of Henry and Amanda. The plot again is based on a very improbable, not totally plausible, premise, but one which is highly entertaining and while short on high voltage action should keep most readers engrossed.I do suggest reading these stories in order so that you're aware of the main charcter's growing maturity along with the developments in Pauline Cole's and Jack O'Connell's characters.

This is the third novel in the great Henry Parker series, you can read it as a standalone story, however major parts of the first two novels' plots are given away by Parker's narration in this (the same thing also happens in his second novel the Guilty), those two books are great reads so grab a copy of The Mark, read it first, then grab a copy of The Guilty before reading page one of this one.

In the Stolen, Parker is told to drop everything and head to Hobbs County where he will be conducting the exclusive interview of the year. Parker will be interviewing Daniel Linwood, a boy who was abducted five years before turning up at his parents' house unaware the five years had gone by. This is no Flight of the Navigator alien abduction novel, Parker learns from going over the tapes of his interview that Daniel unconsciously knows he was held captive with at least one other boy. Parker also wonders why and is infuriated by the fact the police don't seem to want to know, that his editor has told him to drop the story after pressure from the politician who has been instrumental in fixing up Hobbs County from the crime cesspool it once was, to a great family friendly community it is today. Parker is sure Daniel is not the only victim, and is prepared to put his life on the line once again to get to the truth and to save whatever other child victims are out there.

The Stolen is a good fast paced read, however it is a little predictable and seems to wrap up very fast as if there was a looming word count that couldn't be exceeded.
