When he arrives at the airport for his flight back to the United Kingdom for Christmas, he saves the life of a young woman - who turns out to be someone in desperate need of help. He also stumbles across a vaguely familiar face, a young woman with her family who is travelling back home to the United Kingdom for Christmas as well. When Roscoe finds a note asking for help his loathing for Ginevra turns into something deeper. Roscoe is determined to help, but he is about to enter a very tangled web of lies, deceit and hidden enemies.
Kidnapped is another excellent addition to the Bookshots series. It is a well executed novel that manages to keep you hooked until the end and the big reveal of what has been going on. Roscoe is an interesting character, with a wealth of backstory and a temper that would surely have gotten him in trouble in his past life as a police man. I really enjoyed the suspense of the story, and the blended storylines that divided my attention but also kept the tension really high as I tried to figure out what was actually happening. The ending was satisfying and well received - and hopefully this is not the last we have seen of Jon Roscoe.
