Where's My Son? by John C. Dalglish

TitleWhere's My Son?
AuthorJohn C. Dalglish

Print Length: 156 pages

Michael Barton's son goes missing from home and his wife is still sleeping unaware of the deed. He calls the police. Detective Jason Strong tries his best to find the infant and there is no trace. A few years later, tragedy strikes the Bartons again and Michael promises that he will find his son, no matter what.

The kidnappers have plotted and his son is "adopted" by a family who had lost their new born. They are not aware that the paper work is all forged. They love the boy and they also have a natural born son. Both the boys are very close.

In the second half, Michael goes on a rampage to find the boy and Jason has to stop him. It becomes dark and bleak. It was very tight, fast paced and has suspense. Michael's anger is justifiable but the book was too short to show the build up of his rage and anger. I couldn't put down the novella but I did not like the way Michael's character turned up. I didn't like the way he turns to be a murderer so easily. I also found it unbelievable that he is able to trace the kidnappers so easily where the police had failed.

Some story lines aren't given enough room to actually develop properly which means you just sit there despairing at the wasted potential. Here's my BBT post, hope you have a good end to the week!

It a shame though, to hated book when it's potentially good.
