Publisher's Summary

They're trying to take me. Help! Help me, please.

Daphne Mayfield sought a moment of quiet in a park - a break from city life, a tense relationship, and chronic overwork - but then an elderly woman makes a desperate plea. Daphne is reluctant to get involved when she's not sure what's happening, but she wants to help the stranger. Is the rambling old lady the victim of a crime or a victim of dementia?

As her unease grows, Daphne can't let go of the encounter. No matter what her boyfriend or her friends say. No matter what the retired homicide detective warns. Though she knows she's meddling in other people's lives, her instincts scream that the danger is real.

With each increasingly bold intervention, Daphne involves herself in someone else's crisis until she's in too deep to turn back. She's not just fighting for a stranger's life...she's fighting for her own.

A little short on story.

Story didn't flow well enough. lSeems too unfinished. would have liked to have heard more of solving her sister's murder.

Meh

Disappointing read. I really struggled to like the main character, but she was unrealistically whiney, and she just got on my nerves. I thought the plot was thin. Ok for a free or discounted book, but not worth 1 credit, imo. The narration was good and helped to keep me going.

Great storyline and darn good characters.

I really enjoyed this book. I can see that it wouldn't be for everyone but I would suggest that you give it a chance. It'll grow on you as the story proceeds!

Daphne and cell phone

It was so unbelievable that she never seemed to have her phone cell . If it stolen one would immediately get one. This annoyed me greatly

Worthwhile to listen

The story keeps you interested. The characters develop through the course of the story and the main character, although feeble and unsure throughout, ends on top of the world (roof).

not bad

A mystery that makes you think about the way you interact with those around you. The story is a unique concept, but the main character's actions are often cringe worthy. I often found myself wanting to scream at her stupidity.
