Publisher's Summary

Escaping from a madman should have been the end of her nightmare. Instead it was only the beginning....

Lizzy Gardner was just 17 when she was kidnapped by the psychopath known as Spiderman, a serial killer terrorizing her California hometown. Imprisoned and tormented for months, Lizzy narrowly escaped with her life and Spiderman vanished without a trace. But if she thought he would forget her, she was dead wrong.

Fourteen years later, Lizzy is a successful private investigator and self-defense instructor. Wracked with guilt over being the only victim to survive, she's devoted her life to helping others protect themselves from the horrors she endured. But a single phone call brings the terror of the past crashing back. Spiderman has returned and this time, he has no intention of letting Lizzy go. So begins a chilling game of cat-and-mouse, a terrifying, heart-pounding hunt for vengeance that only one will survive.

    "An interesting mystery/thriller"

    Abducted has an unusually high amount of suspense that makes up for a less than great story line. Worthwhile listen! Narration is excellent, but not outstanding

    ""Off the record"! "
    What made the experience of listening to Abducted the most enjoyable?

    The story is good... I didn't want to like Lizzy, but I did. I also think the ending was clever.... Karma!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It was interesting & I liked the idea of it! Some of the thoughts came out of no where, but it is just a story - for entertainment purposes, so it doesn't really have to be logical.


    What didn’t you like about Kate Rudd’s performance?

    The narrator almost RUINED this for me!! More than once I wanted to turn it off!! Her hard pronunciation of "TO" made it almost unbearable!! Other times, her narration makes a tense moment almost seem silly. She is either too sickeningly sweet sounding or robotic! My curiosity (the reason I like mysteries) about the ending is what made me continue listening. If I had the e-book along with this book, I would have stopped listening and started reading, but I only have the audio for this one, so I finished it. I found myself wondering if this was her first narration....


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I gasped aloud once or twice.


    Any additional comments?

    My main complaint is that the author seemed to run out of cliches and repeated them over and over.... "for the record" for example!! I think it was repeated about 8 times in the first half of the book! It got on my nerves. I did enjoy this book - and in the end, I bought the next two - even with the same narrator. I hope she gets better with each book.

    "Could not continue this book😒"

    Completely formula. I guess it's true that you get what you pay for. Starts you out in a terror scene with precious little character development. Disappointing

    "Worst. Narration. Ever."

    The story itself haspotential, but the writing was weak in places. The narration was beyond horrible. The narrator, whoever chose her, and whoever let the audiobook go live should be ashamed of themselves.

    "Hmmm..."

    Lots of whining and about 3 hours too long. This is the type of book I usually like, but I just kept waiting for this one to end.

    "Fantastic story but poorly narrated"

    I read this book and couldn't put it down so the audio book was a no brainier for me. While I still love the story I'm afraid Kate Rudds performance left a lot to be desired. The words were staccato and it all felt very forced. Such a shame as it did take some of the enjoyment from this gripping story

    I enjoyed this book, however, I worked out who Spiderman was well before the end. It kept me entertained, however, as a thriller it ,didn't thrill me.
