Kidnapped by James Patterson and Robert Gold

Jon Roscoe has been in Chicago for the trial of Matteo Ginevra, who was faced criminal charges for the deaths of two construction workers.  It seemed like he was going to get his just desserts, but then another witness recanted their testimony and the case was dismissed - leaving Roscoe with a bitter taste in his mouth and the determination to see Ginevra brought to justice. 

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.
