Publisher's Summary

Andres suspects his wife has left him - again. Then he learns that the unthinkable has happened: She’s been kidnapped. Set in Lima, Peru, in a time of civil and political unrest, this evocative novel is a perfect marriage of domestic drama and suspense. Too much time and too many secrets have come between Andres and Marabela, but now that she’s gone, he’d do anything to get her back.

Or will he?

As Marabela slips farther away, Andres must decide whether they still have something worth fighting for, and exactly what he’ll give up to bring her home. And unfortunately, the decision isn’t entirely up to him, or to the private mediator who moves into the family home to negotiate with the terrorists who are holding Marabela. Andres struggles to maintain the illusion of control while simultaneously scrambling to collect his wife’s ransom, tending to the needs of his two young children, and reconnecting with an old friend who may hold the key to his past and his wife’s future.

    "Not my cup of tea"

    Good writing and performance. Very predictable

    Like this narrator. Will generally finish a book he is reforming even if I'm not crazy about the book

    Story
    "A Good, Surprisingly Suspenseful Story!"

    Think 1992, Lima Peru. An era of widespread criminal activity featuring kidnappings for ransom. Two women in Andres' life have been kidnapped (at different times) and this story reveals human shortfalls and strengths in a spectacular way. What will he part with to get his wife back from her kidnappers? What will he do to help a childhood friend recover from the horrors of her kidnapping? What will his wife do with her life when she returns? Good story. Great suspense all the way.

    The central characters in the story are minimal and though they could have been developed more, what we find out about them as the story unfolds turns out to be adequate.

    I have only one minor criticism. The book is read in third person. Every time a character speaks, it is followed by "she said" or "Andres said." The narrator could have/should have used better character voices and avoided that redundancy. It got tiresome, for sure!
