I think when the full horror of being fifty hits you, you should stay home and have a good cry.
Demakis, Joseph. The Ultimate Book of Quotations (p. 3). Unknown. Kindle Edition.
Now, on to my review of the boxed set of two books. “Snatched leads off with what originally was a series of three books in the series, “Missing.” It then is followed by three books in the series “Deadly Webs.”
If you had purchased only the first book in either series, you likely would have been upset to find each of the first two books in either series ended with cliffhangers. You also may have been disappointed by the language, as profanity is a bit excessive.
Other than the two above points, however, James Hunt is a natural at spinning yarns of suspense with the occasional twist that captures your interest and keeps you, or me at least, turning the pages. A glance at the excerpt below may pique your curiosity.
WHY PURCHASE? Two complete, stand-alone novels of some 750 pages is a bargain at any price south of $5, but free is a no-brainer. Unless you abhor excess profanity.
Four stars out of five.

One request: Be respectful and courteous in your comments and emails to me. I will do likewise with you.
I began these books with a love/hate relationship. James Hunt has a tendency to repeat certain words, one of them being "that". It's not so bad once or twice on a page, but once or twice in the same sentence bothered me. To me, "that" is a stepping stone word. Instead of the words flowing as they should, "that" pauses the reader's progress and breaks the rhythm. As I continued to read, I think I discovered a pattern ... the action scenes were great and flowed almost seamlessly. Finally, I began to suspect the author isn't a fan of informational text as most of the superfluous and stilted writing stood out in those sections while the reader was being transported from one breath-taking scene to the next. Most of this could be resolved with the attention of a skilled proof-reader.
With my pet peeves reported, I'll get down to the nitty-gritty of this series. I thought the story line was great. Chase Grant is a totally likable character, made even more so by his partner (Mocks) and his tragic history. Who wouldn't like a character who throws himself into a case with no stopping points or "it's too dangerous" moments? Once Chase sets his watch, he is on a countdown and like a bloodhound on a scent. He never allows his personal well being to influence the effort he puts forth to save those who have been taken.
I purchased this series at an extremely reasonable price. I don't know anywhere I can find so much entertainment for the money spent. So, if you want to be totally caught up in hours of reading, take advantage of this great deal. I would recommend, however, you skip to Book 2 and read to the end before going back to the beginning.
Take a breath & enjoy!
