Echoes of Terror
In Echoes of Terror, two teenage girls have gone missing in Skagway, Alaska. This case brings back terrible memories for Officer Katherine Ward when she finds out it’s the same man who kidnapped her and held her captive and raped her for nine months when she was fourteen. Vince Nanini is the godfather of one of the girls and is called in by the father to find her. He and Katherine must work together to find the girls before he kills them both.
I found the premise of this book to be very interesting. What would someone be like fifteen years after going through that kind of nightmare? However, I feel like the author didn’t delve very deep into the characters because she was trying to show you what was going on with too many of them. In my own opinion, if she had just focused on Katherine and what it was like for her reliving her own terror, the book would have been great. It was still an entertaining read, even though I didn’t find the end to be very unpredictable. Not a lot of twists, but when you are talking about being held captive and raped, it’s still terrifying. Be forewarned, this author doesn’t just hint at rape, it is very obvious what is happening.
