Montana mechanic Jeff and Sarah Griffin, accompanied by their tweener son Cole, go on vacation in Manhattan.  In Times Square, Jeff enters a shop to buy batteries while his wife and child wait outside.  After he completes his purchase he goes to join his family, but they are gone.  He searches frantically the stores in the area, but fails to find them.

 

A desperate Jeff goes to the police whose first inclination is the duo are okay and will see him later and second and only other thought if not he harmed his wife and son.  Not willing to wait around, Jeff, feeling guilty over his previous thoughts of divorce, begins a frantic search for his family that leads him into the part of the city that tourists never visit.

 

This is an exhilarating thriller that never allows the reader a moment of respite as one twist leads to another as the clock ticks.  Fans will root for this everyman to defeat the dregs of society as Rick Mofina provides a gripping taut tale summed up aptly by the title.
