Publisher's Summary

Andrew McCarthy grows concerned for his family after he catches a young man, Zachary Denton, photographing his daughter, Grace McCarthy, and other children at a park. To his dismay, Zachary talks his way out of trouble when he’s confronted by the police. He hopes that’s the end of it. Then he finds Zachary at a diner and then at a grocery store. He knows their encounters aren't coincidences. And just as Andrew prepares to defend his family, Grace vanishes

As the police search stalls and the leads dry up, Andrew decides to take matters into his own hands. He starts by searching for sex offenders in the area and researching enhanced interrogation techniques.... He convinces himself he’ll do anything to rescue his daughter, unaware of the pure evil he'll face in his journey. He’s willing to hurt - to torture - anyone to save his family. 

Jon Athan, the author of Into the Wolves’ Den and The Abuse of Ashley Collins, delves into the underworld of internet predators in this disturbing horror novel. Are your children safe?

Ugh, Wrong in Every Way!

NO SPOILERS! First off, this book is over the top violent but that is not my reason for the bad rating. It was violent just for the sake of being obnoxiously violent. The narrator was awful. He sounds like he is about to start laughing and this book is not funny at all.

I quit 3/4 in because it was getting more and more ridiculous. I like books that have logic and this one is missing it in spades. I hated this book.

Hardcore

Although this book had some disturbing acts, it let me see how horrid people actually are in this world. I had to shut it down several times during the gruesome parts. I had to give myself a couple days in between, I wanted to slam my phone. Jon Athon's writing makes the story so vivid. love his books. zee

One of Athan's best - a brutal masterpiece

I'm an avid fan of Jon Athan and The Groomer further cements him as one of the best horror writers. He tackles the very sensitive subject head on and doesn't shy away from portraying it in the most raw and brutal fashion, and I applaud him for that because the crimes in this book are things that happen in real life. I highly recommend this book.

Unlistenable

Obviously “narrated” by a computer programme. Completely unlistenable, complete rip-off - should not be allowed
