For siblings Jim and Erica Winters, a summer vacation to London promises adventure and a bit of freedom from their overprotective mother. But once they arrive, they end up with more excitement than they bargained for. Their mother is kidnapped and her captors demand the one thing they can’t produce – their long-absent father.
Unable to trust the authorities, Jim and Erica set off in pursuit of their father, racing across Europe and fending off mysterious assailants. As the trail of clues dries up, help arrives in the form of a raven-haired beauty. Is she the answer to their prayers or a romantic distraction?
With the kidnapper’s deadline looming, the truth about their father’s shadowy past is revealed. In a last ditch effort to save their mother, Jim and Erica must climb high into the Swiss Alps where a perilous choice confronts them. Can they trust their father who has repeatedly betrayed them?
My Rating: 3.5/5
I received this book for review from the author. The author's Goodreads page can be found here.
I liked the brother/sister relationship between Jim and Erica. It was very realistically portrayed and genuine.
My favourite part of the book was the fact that contained a broad range of settings particularly across Europe.
It is hard to pigeonhole this book in one particular main genre, it seems to have little bits of a lot of genres in it.
