This book is about a police officer who was held captive for 3 years in a soundproofed basement by her abductor. During those years the only thing different from her surroundings was when her kidnapper came to visit and during those times she learnt to hide her emotions and read his facial expressions and body cues in order to protect herself and not do anything that would anger him.
But one day, she finds the chance to escape, and she does. Once she’s safe she realises that her senses are more acute/sensitive, nothing supernatural, but that she is more perceptive in reading peoples facial expressions and body cues than the average person, and not that she’s perfect at it either, as she realises that sometimes assumptions about a person can make a person blind to those cues.
Eventually she ends up back on the force and onto a case that may be connected to her own kidnapping, as one of the persons she was ask to look into before she was abducted may be connected to the homicide she has been put on to investigate.
I enjoyed reading this book. I liked the different points of views, which give us a broader depth to the characters and storyline. I liked the storyline and how it progressed to show us the connection to how the main character was abducted and why. Also I thought the ending was wrapped up well with the whole investigation being resolved as well as her own abduction. The story kept me interested the whole way through and I thought the book was well written.
I would definitely recommend this book and I will be reading book 2 ‘The Body Counter’ by Anne Frasier also.
