Publisher's Description

An investigator who knows tragic loss firsthand,
and his new client, missing far too long...

Abducted at the age of sixteen and coerced into assisting the Jacoby crime family, Shannon Bliss has finally found a way out. She desperately wants to resume some semblance of normal life, but she also knows she has some unfinished business to attend to. She might have enough evidence to put her captors behind bars for a very long time.

When Shannon contacts private investigator Matthew Dane, a former cop, to help her navigate her reentry into society, he quickly discovers that gaining her freedom doesn't mean her troubles are over. If the Jacoby family learns she is still alive, they'll stop at nothing to silence her.

If justice is to be done, and if Shannon's life is ever to get on track again, Matthew will need to discover exactly what happened to her--even if it means stirring up a hornet's nest of secrets.

    Kidnapped as a teenager, Shannon Bliss has escaped the terrifying control of the Jacoby crime family. Although reluctant to share her experiences while in captivity, she seeks out the help of private investigator, Matthew Dane, who has first hand insight into Shannon's trauma after going through the grueling ordeal of having his own daughter kidnapped. Matthew's experience in leading his daughter through the healing process and assisting her as best he can back into a "normal" life after she was rescued, propels Shannon to trust him to help her do the same. As Shannon becomes more comfortable with Matthew, she begins opening up sharing details about her experience and provides information that will lead to the evidence necessary to capture and convict the Jacoby family responsible for her kidnapping and captivity. Matthew's network of friends become a crucial part of not only Shannon's rehabilitation, but also in the investigation.

    I have to admit this novel was not what I expected after being a huge fan of Henderson's for many years. There was not much suspense or danger (although the storyline hinted that Shannon would be in danger if the Jacoby family knew she survived). Instead, the novel was basically Shannon sharing small glimpses into her kidnapping and captivity- but only a little bit of her experience. I would have liked to have seen more development into her kidnapping story, suspense, danger- anything to help the plot not be so dull and flat. And as far as the "romance" goes, there was no romance! This element of the story was more along the lines of Shannon having a crush on a man who believes he is too old for her. At one point in the story, Shannon even admits to Matthew that she has a "crush" on him! Not the level of romance I was hoping for. The one redeeming aspect of the book was the inclusion of many of the beloved characters from the O'Malley series, Paul and Ann Falcon from Full Disclosure, and Bryce and Charlotte Bishop from Unspoken. Henderson masterfully weaves these characters into Taken in a way that makes sense and adds to the plot. Otherwise, I was disappointed in this one.

    This review contains my own thoughts and opinions. I received no compensation from the publisher or author for my review.

    This book can stand alone, however, I would make sure to of read all of her previous books. This is one of those you can't put down until you have finished reading it.

    Dee has a way of writing that is distinctly her own. Taken helps you remember to never take anything or anyone for granted. Dramatic, suspenseful and keeps you on the edge of your seat.
