Will Jennings, his wife and little girl are a happy American family, living in Mississippi. Hickey is a conman and kidnapper. He targets his victims very carefully and takes great pains to make sure no one is ever hurt. He has yet to kill. All his victims have come up with the money and the authorities have never been involved. His perfect record is down to two things: One, he always stays with the parents or person with the money. Two, he never asks for more than they can afford. But when he tries to rip Will's family apart, he gets a lot more than he bargained for...All in one fateful day.

I read the book in German as a ring and liked it very much. So I bought it now for the Lieblingsbuch Ring. I hope you like it too.

Arrived today - thanks a lot! I actually have a copy of my own, but now I can't find it :). I can't remember too much about this book so I'll give it another try.

As I already mentioned, I read this book a few years ago and couldn't remember a lot about it. Now that I've re-read it I know why: It was quite entertaining - a real page-turner - but nothing more. One thing that really spoiled the book for me was the ending - THIS I could remember because I didn't like it back then either.

Nonetheless, thanks for giving me the opportunity to re-read this book! And as you can see in the picture, my daughter liked reading the book as well :) - don't worry, I made sure she treated it carefully!
The book is already on its way to bluecat07.

Well, now I finally read it. It was ok, quite good for a thriller but I realize more and more that I like mysteries but prefer to watch thrillers on TV and not read them. I guess it just isn't my genre. But I had some entertaining hours with it.

Thanks for the opportunity to read it, Jessi!

The book is now on its way to Leseratte...

I finished reading this book yesterday evening and it drug me along until his last page.
In the meanwhile i stopped reading because it was so cruelly.
But all together I enjoyed reading this book very much. Thank you Jessi626 for this nice book.

released the book from my mailbox today (found it crammed in the box) but in good condition.

Nice to have an english book in this ring.
I will allow it a to rest for a while because I have two rings waiting here ;-)

Thanks for sending it

It was not really dragging me along and I flipped through the last pages, reading zig-zag to get to the ending.A little pesky to read a brand name on every second page; obviously sponsored by McDonald,BMW,Camel cigarettes,Hitachi,Canon,Nokia,... Certainly I missed some

The book is on the way to the next address, but won't be there in 24 hours presumably ;-)
