Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth
I know Neil Cross best for the creepy movie Mama and the British crime drama Luther. Captured is the first novel of his that I've read, and I'm so glad I did.
After he's diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, Kenny Drummond makes a list of people he needs to revisit and right past wrongs. One of the people on that list is a former classmate, Callie, who he learns has since married and vanished. Kenny makes it his number one priority to find out what the police have been unable to do. He's going to find out what really happened to her.
Captured is such a powerful, emotional story. The descriptive, almost lyrical, narrative drew me in. I rooted for Kenny from the very start. From Kenny to his wife, and the P.I. to Callie's husband, each character was well developed and likable. The plot moved swiftly and kept me intrigued. With this, I'll be finding Neil Cross's backlist and working my way through those books too!
