‘TAKEN‘ by MONTY MARSDEN
BOOK BEGINNINGS / FIRST LINES
“Let’s go outside. I want to see the moon.”
“Are you happy now, Jack? Are you satisfied?”
“It’s so different here …. So much bigger, brighter.”
“You didn’t answer me.”
“The whole sky looks closer.” His breathing had only just returned to normal. “We had to do it, Fox.”
I shared an extract from Chapter One of ‘Taken’, as my spot on the recent Blog Tour, so I will re-cap with just the very first line and leave a link to the full post, just in case you want to read a little more.
The Alitalia Boeing 747 had begun its final descent to Hartsfield International in Atlanta a few minutes earlier.
It’s been two years since mass murderer, Giacomo Riondino, disappeared after killing Greta Alfieri…
Dr Claps, devastated and guilt-ridden by Greta’s death has been on a man-hunt for Riondino ever since.
Meanwhile, an American girl disappears on the 382nd step of the Cerro trail in Guayaquil, Ecuador.
No one saw her disappear. Who took her? And how?
When the US authorities contact Claps, he is certain that it must be Riordino. But, unlike Riondino’s other victims, the girl has disappeared into thin air…
Will Claps solve the puzzle, or will he lose his mind in the process, blinded by his own obsession?
