"Retired psychology professor Adrian Thomas is on his way home one day, planning his suicide (he's just been diagnosed with an extreme variation of dementia and is already hallucinating) when he witnesses a teen girl apparently being kidnapped. Less than impressed with official police efforts (who themselves don't feel he's the ideal witness), Adrian decides to track her down himself. If a hero whose body and mind are rapidly failing doesn't amp up the suspense, consider what we learn from the victim and her abductors: she's the latest victim of a sadistic couple who put their victims' slow torture and eventual death up for public display on the Internet -- and take guidance for "what comes next" from their equally twisted audience."

A real page-turner, dragged a bit in places, but well worth reading. An absolutely emotional ending!

About 150 pages too long for the story. Not bad but not good either. The end was the best part of the book. Both because is was the most interesting and because it was finally the end!

What a shame. John Katzenbach is a very good writer, but this is an awful book. I couldn't finish it, the sadism was just too much.

I cried at the end. I mean my boyfried thought I was nuts! Any misgivings I may have had 1/2 way through regarding Adrian's a"seeing" to dead relatives through his dementia were put aside as the book progress. The ending was powerful! The book as a whole was a little slow going for me, but is an almost 450 page book. That being said, I would definately recommend this book if you will just stick with it and let it all play out. A real page turner at the end.
