There was very little which was believable in this short novella. Between a grieving young mother dying of uterine cancer - a supposed DNR - in a nursing home with a feeding tube (people who request that nothing be done don't generally have feeding tubes inserted prior to an expected death) and a father torturing a suspected kidnapper he conveniently finds taking a bath by repeatedly dropping a plugged-in hairdryer into the bathtub - and the kidnapper managing to live through several shocks, giving up the requested information, before finally succumbing to electrocution, there's almost nothing that makes this story ring true.
The ending is the most fantastically unbelievable wrap-up of all. I won't give it away for those who want to read the book but it's pure fantasy to think that any police department would handle a similar situation in the manner this is handled.
The editing is poor. An abundance of capitalization of random words, off-center formatting and bad puncuation is scattered throughout the book.
