Two years ago, Sara's husband left for the gym one morning...and never came back. His car was found. He wasn't. Unbelievably, the police report said, "No foul play suspected." There were a few unreliable sightings over the following months, but little else.
Now, on the last day before summer break, her three children have gone missing from their schools, all at the same time.
And the note under her windshield wiper asks one foreboding question: Are you ready to play the game?
Sarah's Game is a fast paced thriller that brings every parents worst fear to life. Sara has to play a madmans game to save her children. Embarrassment, confusion and rage are some of the emotions at the forefront of this story. There are a few little zings of humor mixed in also and it makes for a well balanced story. The main character, Sara, is well developed with quite a bit of back story, and you feel yourself sympathizing and rooting for her. The supporting characters are an integral part of the story, but you don't learn quite as much about them as you do about Sara. This is a very fast read that will keep you on the edge of your seat, and keep you up reading late into the night. I'm usually pretty good at figuring out the bad guy in the book early, but this one kept me guessing a little bit, and I liked that. This book seems to have a nice tidy ending to it, but you get the feeling there is more to Sara and her story then meets the eye. I can't wait to get into Book 2 and see what's coming next for her.
