What They're Saying

It Only Takes a Moment

Eliza Blake discovers that nothing can prepare you for what is every mother's horrifying nightmare: the phone call announcing that your child has been kidnapped. When seven-year-old Janie is snatched from her summer camp, the whole country stays glued to their television sets, anxiously awaiting the news that their favorite morning television personality's little girl has been found. With each passing day, the FBI and local authorities track down every lead: a profile of the kidnapper's most likely characteristics is developed, every fan letter written to Eliza over the last six months is re-read and analyzed, every child sex offender registered within a 50-mile radius is interviewed, and psychics from around the country appear on Eliza's doorstep to offer their help.

The "Sunrise Suspense Society" must re-convene and dedicate themselves to finding Janie before it's too late.

Reviews & Blurbs

"New York City news anchor Eliza Blake, now back at the morning TV show KEY to America, pays a price for her high media profile in this riveting novel of suspense from bestseller Clark (When Day Breaks). When kidnappers seize Eliza’s seven-year-old daughter, Janie, and Eliza’s Hispanic housekeeper on their way home from camp in New Jersey, Eliza’s comfortable life turns into a living nightmare. The FBI, local law enforcement and Eliza’s news team work around the clock to discover the identities and locations of the kidnappers. When a psychic arrives at Eliza’s doorstep, claiming to know details of the kidnapping that weren’t released to the press, Eliza is convinced that the psychic can help find Janie. Suspicious letters, ransom notes and mysterious clues heighten the suspense. A multitude of red herrings will keep the reader guessing to the shocking conclusion."
