It's not real gory or alot of murders, just a mystery with only one other woman killed, which isn't even the story, but it's all about Emilie Davis and a man's obsession to have her at all costs. And when you find out the reason in the end, it seems rather dumb to me, but hey, crazy people have crazy thoughts! I just don't think I would have been traumatized like he was over something that happened in my past. And it's no excuse to kill people either or hold them against their will.
But, from the moment that the crazy guy sees Emilie's green eyes, he becomes bent on having her at all costs and almost succeeds the first time with a bank robbery gone wrong. But, he is a patient man, and he waits for his second chance. And because Emilie doesn't take this as seriously as she should, he gets his second chance. What will happen? Well, you are gonna have to read the book to find out.
Happy Reading! I know I did this backwards this time but I couldn't help it once I started writing I wanted to get it all out before I forgot something.
Here is a synopsis of the book:
A two-hundred-mile labyrinth of dark storm drains serves as a refuge for the delusional stalker who will go to any lengths to possess fragile, emotionally isolated Emilie Davis. To survive, Emilie will have to confront the secrets of her past she has kept locked away from everyone, including herself. Emilie is a master escape artist—she’s fled a manipulative mother and a controlling ex-husband.
But it’s impossible to evade a stalker who uses a bank robbery as a ruse to kidnap her. He’s still out there, hiding in the Las Vegas tunnels and dodging police. Emilie’s life careens out of control as her assailant continues his pursuit. She has nowhere to turn but to Nathan Madigan, the hostage negotiator who worked the robbery. Nathan is haunted by his failure to protect a loved one fourteen years ago and dedicates his life to saving others.
Determined to catch the lunatic hunting Emilie, he finds himself losing his professional detachment. He fears history is about to repeat itself if he cannot protect Emilie from the Taker’s obsession. The police close in on the Taker’s identity as Nathan and Emilie grow closer to each other and to resolving the misery of their own pasts.
At the height of The Taker’s madness, his attempt to replace someone he’s lost will either kill them all or set them free.Author's Info:
