A kidnapped little girl locked in a stranger’s van. No help for miles. What would you do?
On her way to Utah to see her dying mother, college student Darby Thorne gets caught in a fierce blizzard in the mountains of Colorado. With the roads impassable, she’s forced to wait out the storm at a remote highway rest stop. Inside, are some vending machines, a coffee maker, and four complete strangers.
Desperate to find a signal to call home, Darby goes back out into the storm . . . and makes a horrifying discovery. In the back of the van parked next to her car, a little girl is locked in an animal crate.
Who is the child? Why has she been taken? And how can Darby save her?
There is no cell phone reception, no telephone, and no way out. One of her fellow travelers is a kidnapper. But which one?
Trapped in an increasingly dangerous situation, with a child’s life and her own on the line, Darby must find a way to break the girl out of the van and escape.
But who can she trust?
With exquisitely controlled pacing, Taylor Adams diabolically ratchets up the tension with every page. Full of terrifying twists and hairpin turns, No Exit will have you on the edge of your seat and leave you breathless.
I punched this out in 3.5 hours. I just couldn’t put it down. Phenomenal. Spectacular. Thrilling. Nail-biting. Fast paced. Exhilarating. Really, I could go on a while yet. The only two ‘negatives’ that I have about this story is that the chapters were too long, I think it could have been even more thrilling if the chapters had of been short and snappy. The other, the first two chapters were a tad on the slow side. Plenty more fantastic points about this book though! Like I mentioned the pace for the majority of the book was awesome, my heart was beating ridiculously fast throughout and I haven’t even had my RedBull for the day! I’m so glad I’m on holidays at the moment and was fortunate enough to have the luxury of not having to put it down because I don’t know if I could have. I was hooked. The plot was clever, the characters you loved to hate the baddies, the little twists had me gasping “Shit”, “WTF”, “Noway”, “Dammit”. I don’t want to put any spoilers but what the hell was with the ending, I wanted it to go the other direction!!! This story would make a phenomenal movie.
So, I guess you could say I liked it. I LOVED it!!!! But don’t just listen to me, read it, and let me know what you thought.
I rated No Exit: 5/5 stars
