This is the kind of book where you resent the intrusions of real life that force you to put it down. Well, most of the time. Sometimes it was so intense and scary, I HAD to put it down! A terrific pace and a complex plot that kept me guessing. ~Norah Wilson, author of the Serve and Protect Series
"Ragan executes this spine-chilling thriller with such razor-sharp precision readers are left breathless." ~Romantic Times, 4 1/2 TOP PICK --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Let me tell you the serial killer is just downright creepy. The guy's nicknamed "Spiderman" for a reason. This book labeled as a romantic suspense is heavy on the thriller/suspense and very, very light on the romance. Jared and Lizzy's story is still a good one as they try to reconnect after everything that's happened in the last 10 years. Lizzy's character develops slowly as the story moves along and there are times I wondered if she'd ever be able to move forward. The torture scenes are graphically detailed which intensifies the creep factor. The side characters are realistic and I was amazed at how Lizzy, Jared and Spiderman's family dynamics twist and turn. The story is nicely woven together for a terrific ending. The story keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat the entire time. Totally engrossing and a terrific read.
I read mostly mysteries but this was harder to get through because of the child sexual abuse, multiple mutilations and animal cruelty. Some of it in my opinion was to much - ever single character was emotionally scarred. As a pet lover and cat owner what happens to Lizzy's cat was too much for me.
I would read another of Ragan's book and hopefully it's not as dark.
Just about everyone in the book forgets their cell phone in their car, just as they need it, or they have a dead battery. There's a deranged killer on the loose and he's clearly after a few specific people, but nobody wants to change their lives, including the mother of a targeted teenager.
After killing a number of young girls, the police never realized a very obvious connection to all of them. I could go on and on.
This story is fast paced, thrilling and full of non-stop action. I couldn't put it down. The writing is excellent and I absolutely loved the Heroine and Hero and the secondary character Haley (I really hope to see a story for Haley). If you like Lisa Gardner, Beverly Barton, Laura Lippman and the like, you will find in this author, a new favorite.
Theresa, where you been girl? I'm looking forward to reading all you have. Congratulations on your thriller debut!
After Lizzy escaped from her abductor, Spiderman has stopped killing but has the need to find the "one that got away." She has betrayed him and now he seeks his revenge.
This "thriller" was incredibly disappointing. I was bored before even getting halfway through the book, and then I was annoyed at all of the problems with Abducted. I am just going to list them...
1. All of the characters seem to forget their cell phones in their car or the battery dies, just when they need it the most.
2. The common link between ALL of the victims is missed by the police and it's way too obvious to miss.
3. Lizzy is the WORST private investigator on the face of the earth. She ignores her intuition and ignores odd behavior every other scene. Plus, there's several times where she doesn't contact the police when any person would.
4. There are some really pointless characters in this book and I felt as though their mini-stories were just a way of dragging the plot along.
5. I read almost 400 pages, waiting for a twist that never came. When it was revealed who Spiderman was, I was not in the least bit suprised.
6. For a book released in 2012, I'm pretty sure it's common knowledge that you don't have to wait 60 seconds before a trace starts on your phone when set up by police.
7. Nobody ever takes Lizzy seriously besides her love interest.Read more ›
