Abducted at the age of sixteen and coerced into assisting the Jacoby crime family, Shannon Bliss has finally found a way out. She desperately wants to resume some semblance of normal life, but she also knows she has some unfinished business to attend to. She has enough evidence to put her captors behind bars for a very long time.

When Shannon contacts private investigator and former cop Matthew Dane to help her navigate her reentry into society, she quickly discovers that gaining her freedom doesn’t mean her troubles are over. For one thing, her brother is the leading candidate in the race for Illinois governor, and news of her escape will create a media frenzy. For another, the ransom her family reportedly paid years earlier appears to have been a scam; no one knows what happened to the money. And then there’s the fact that Shannon’s escape involved faking her own death. If the Jacoby family learns she is still alive, they’ll stop at nothing to silence her.

If justice is to be done, and if Shannon’s life is ever to get on track again, Matthew will need to discover exactly what happened to her–even if it means stirring up a hornet’s nest of secrets.

NOTE: These “reviews” are as simple as it gets (and mostly for tracking purposes)! They will have a rating, first thought, narrator thought (quick), and will officially be filed 🙂 

Listened for Review (Brilliance)
Overall Rating: DNF

Audio Rating: 4.00 (not part of the overall rating)

Why the DNF?: I gave Taken by Dee Henderson 2 hours and just couldn’t see me getting over the fact that it constantly refers to her as similar to his daughter. I know since this is romantic suspense that they will fall in love later and I will just be icked out. This is the only reason that I stopped the story. The suspense part was compelling but not enough for me to get over the romance part of the story.

Audio Thoughts

Narrated By Adam Verner / Length: 12 hrs and 28 mins


Adam did a great job with the narration. He had a great way of sounding gruff when needed and could switch to innocent/scared in the drop of a dime. I will listen to an audiobook narrated by him in the future.

  1. I agree with you on the daughter piece. Ick. I don’t think I could get past his comparison if it turned to romance later on. I had a hard time getting past the “Who’s your daddy?” type of comments in KA’s Knight for that reason.
