You can’t get tougher than this
I hope you find your way to A Matter of Chance by Julie Maloney. It is a beautiful, heart-rending tale of a daughter's kidnapping, and the vivid, intense, close-to-crazy experience inside Maddy, the mom's head. The whole time I imagined, "If it was me..." with all the anguish of never, never, never giving up hope for a vanished daughter. You can’t get tougher than a mother who doesn’t give up. Police detectives. Russian Mafia. New York streets. Exquisitely desperate. Beautifully told.
