This is the story of Debbie. She has taken her daughter to the park for an ordinary morning of fun. Unfortunately, it turns out to be anything but after she witnesses a murder. The teenagers she saw committing the atrocity wage a campaign of terror on her and her family, eventually kidnapping her daughter. With the help of her neighbours, can she dig deep and find the reserves she needs to meet their demands and be reunited with her daughter?
This is one of those stories that gives you chills because it COULD happen. Stories rooted in real life are always more horrifying I think. Debbies plight moved me, and Frank seemed like such a lovely chap, as he helped her move heaven and earth to get her daughter back. Could I do what she had to? I'm not sure to be honest. The pace belted along and I read the entire novella in about an hour. The twist at the end was totally unexpected and rounded off an already outstanding novella really solidly.
