"The Cornwalls Are Gone" by James Patterson & Brendan DuBois

The Cornwalls Are Gone by James Patterson and Brendan DuBois is a page-turning thriller about the kidnapping of Amy Cornwall’s husband and 10-yr-old daughter. Amy is an Army intelligence Captain who comes home from work to find a strange cell phone and an odd message on her dining room table. She has just 48 hours to locate and liberate an unknown man in Texas or her husband and daughter will be killed! She lives in Virginia and has no time to waste. She blows off her 8 a.m. meeting at work and sets off who kidnapped her family and why. She is determined to complete this mission and get her family back no matter what and finds out she is dealing with an extremely dangerous man!

This book grabbed me from page 1 and never let go! It moved along quickly and had no dull parts. It has mystery, suspense, adventure, betrayal and fighting. I think this book could be improved if the authors developed the characters of Tom and Denise before just jumping in with the kidnapping right away. It is okay the way it is, but I think I would have been even more invested in the story if I felt I actually knew Tom and Denise. I would like to have seen a bit more character development.

Gerard's review:
In The Cornwalls Are Gone by James Patterson, Amy Cornwall has 48 hours to follow instructions given to her, or her husband and daughter will be killed.  She is instructed not to tell anyone.  Amy was a really good character.  The other people in this novel were never really developed.  The last 30 or so pages is when the bulk of the action takes place.  This book is worth reading.
(4.5 stars)

Teaser from page 7: I read and re-read the message, clear and to the point, and I’m in the middle of reading it for the third time when the strange phone rings, jolting me so hard that I nearly drop my weapon.
