I got this paperback from the ongoing charity-sale shelves at a local Hannaford.

It started out in very suspenseful fashion, with an all-too-believable - and terrifying - home-invasion, which narrator Lo experiences just as she's due to leave on a high-end assignment on a cruise ship. Her tendency to drink to blackout point bothered me - there are mitigating factors, but she's certainly old enough to know better than to let herself get into that situation - and some of her other decisions were a bit iffy (even allowing for her increasing stress and PTSD), but she's gutsy and resourceful, good things when trying to escape a very intricate and diabolical web. (She's not that great at dealing with interpersonal relationships, and I really wanted to point her to the Captain Awkward column at times, but advice columns might not be that helpful once you've actually been kidnapped {wry grin}.)

Some aspects of the story reminded me of a famous Hitchcock film; won't say which one as it'd be quite a spoiler. Others relied on modern-day tech for a running commentary outside Lo's viewpoint, with emails, news reports, and excerpts from online blogs to fill in things from the view of other main characters. And there are twists - twists upon twists, all the way to the end!
