The Lonely Mile by Allan Leverone

This is the story of an ordinary man (Bill) foiling the latest kidnapping attempt by the 'I-90 Killer'. That simple heroic act set in motion a chain of events that no one could have foreseen. Now Bill is the victim – his daughter has been kidnapped by the I-90 Killer. He will stop at nothing to get her back, even going over the FBI Agent (Angie) assigned to the case.

This was utterly amazing! It grabbed me by the scruff of the neck from the beginning and would not let go until the very end. The action was unrelenting and took my breath away in places. I identified with Bill, being a parent myself, I would have done exactly the same in his position and not thought twice about it. The story rocketed along and at about the halfway point started to take a very sinister direction, which then set the reader up for the shocking and climactic ending. There were a few twists and turns on the way to that ending – one of which was totally unexpected. In short this is a clever and suspenseful thriller and I wholeheartedly recommend it.

This review was originally written for the TBR Pile.
