Beat-the-clock suspense in a pedestrian kidnaping narrative. The author then pulls us through predictable scenes with vacuous mall drones and skeptical cops while cross-cutting to the loudly suffering Didi and simmering psycho Lyle, who brutally assaults anyone who gets too close. Blatantly manipulative and gratuitously horrific; still, this might just be the breakout novel its author intends. A touching family drama that effectively explores the negative impact of stress on fragile relationships.
