I found this softcover in this Little Free Library in Nashua NH while dropping off some books of my own, and nabbed it for another release copy.

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!
