    This is a fast paced and tense hybrid domestic and legal thriller set in Virginia that kept me totally glued to the book until the end It all begins with Judge Scott Sampson receiving a text from his wife telling him she will pick up their six year old twins, Sam and Emma, from school Whilst resentful of missing the opportunity to spend time swimming with them, he thinks nothing of it until his wife, Alison, comes home without them and says she sent no such text At this point, Scott and Alison s lives begin to spiral out of control and sink to tortuous depths when Scott is contacted by their kidnappers who hammer home that he must do exactly as he is told if he wants to see the twins alive It is reinforced that he is to say nothing to anyone unless he wants serious harm to befall them Scott and Alison will do whatever it takes to ensure their beloved children return.Scott is set a test to see whether he will follow orders on a specific court case that he is presiding over Against all the prevailing evidence and testimony he frees a man that should have served at least 12 years in prison This sets off an intense media focus on him, there are rumours of corruption, questioning and impugning Scott s integrity His reputation is in tatters and he is facing the prospect of impeachment His son, Sam, is returned but there are further expectations of him with regard to a high profile pharmaceutical patent hearing which Scott was unaware was on his list Scott has no choice but to do as he is told, they still have Emma Scott finds himself under extreme pressure, his relationship with his wife is now riddled with insecurities and suspicions, everyone is a suspect including Justina, the nanny, friends and his team at work Where will it all end He and his wife, Alison, find significant support from her family, particularly her sisters Karen and Jennifer Brad Parks does a sterling job in capturing the unravelling lives of Scott and Alison at the hands of ruthless and amoral kidnappers It s every parents nightmare that their children should be so horrifically endangered This is a well written and beautifully plotted book that holds the readers attention with ease and biting their nails at the tension, suspense and heartbreak A brilliant read that comes highly recommended Thanks to Faber and Faber for an ARC.

    Gripping is the word best suited to describe this wonderful phsychological thriller from Brad Parks Alison thinks her husband Judge Scott Sampson has picked the kids up from school as he usually does on a Wednesday, but Scott received a text from Alison saying that she d pick them up the only problem being, it wasn t Alison who sent the text When Alison arrives home without the kids, Scott is about to ring the school when he receives a call saying the kids have been kidnapped and that he must do exactly as he s told in a drug case that he s about to rule on or the kids will be harmed.This call is only the beginning of the most unimaginable journey of terror that a parent could ever have to suffer The anguish turns Scott and Alison s lives upside down, and cracks begin to appear in their once loving marriage, with suspicion and jealousy rearing their ugly heads As if all this isn t enough for them to contend with, fate has yet another cruel blow to deliver.Oh gosh This was a heartbreaking journey to follow, and their were times when I thought for God s sake give these people a break It was a well thought out plot, the characters were well developed, and it was utterly compelling I haven t read Brad Parks before, but I ll have to have a look at his earlier work now A great read Thank you to Netgalley and Faber Faber for my ARC for which I have given an honest review

    A Traveling sister read with Norma, Brenda and Holly 4.5 Scott and Allison are living the ideal life Both highly successful in their careers and blessed with adorable 6 year old twins named Sam and Emma.Receiving a text from Alison that she ll be picking the twins up from school, Scott doesn t think twice about it That is until Alison arrives home without the children What text When the phone suddenly rings the true nightmare begins You will do nothing You will say nothing This is a very fast, intense read There were portions in the beginning I found long winded and had some difficulty keeping track of all the players But then the momentum really ramped up and became absolutely impossible to put down You feel personally involved in the desperate struggle to get the children back home alongside their loving parents The ending was fantastic Exciting, action packed and wrapped up extremely well with no loose ends I was actually brought to tears at one point That never happens in a thriller I highly recommend For our full traveling sister review please visit Norma and Brenda s fantastic book blog

    Traveling Sisters Group Read Review by Norma, Brenda, Kaceey and Holly 4.5 stars SAY NOTHING by BRAD PARKS is a wonderfully blended tale with an extremely engaging storyline that includes child kidnapping, a legal thriller, and a psychological thriller that was tense, thrilling, and gripping that kept us guessing and wondering right to the very end This book really grabbed our attention quite early on and the ending was so powerful that it had a few of us actually weepy and having to grab that box of Kleenex I think this is the first time that Kaceey Norma have actually cried while reading a thriller which we think is actually a first and quite unheard of BRAD PARKS delivers a fast paced and tension filled read here as we were feeling the desperation and overwhelming fear from the characters as they were helpless to do anything to save their children Say nothing and do nothing we couldn t even imagine the anguish that the parents would be going through as they were powerless to do anything As we were reading this some of the parents reactions and actions had Holly looking for Lindsay our believability police but she wasn t on the case with us for this read BRAD PARKS does a really good job at creating and placing some good red herrings here that had us asking each other a few questions How would we react and what would we do if we were told to Say Nothing Brenda and Kaceey found some of the legal jargon a little long winded, with a few too many political players to keep track of and some of it just went over their heads The ending is powerful and emotionally charged with no loose ends that left some of us feeling sad and heart broken but we thought the ending came together perfectly leaving us feeling completely satisfied We couldn t read it fast enough Highly recommend The Traveling Sisters Group Read Review can be found on Brenda s and my sister blog

    2.5 A well respected judge and his wife of many years Two abducted six year old twins A text that advises the judge to Say nothing if he ever wants to see his children again.Intriguing premise, so why did I utterly fail to connect with this story, one that has garnered many high ratings and reviews Well for one, from the very beginning I found the tone irritating, off putting I can t imagine anything worse then having your children abducted, not knowing where they are, would you ever see them again Yet, the tone is unemotional, throughout the book seldom varies, for me a clear case of tell, not show Second, I didn t like any of these characters, except for the children of course, they just failed to engage me emotionally in any way Third, I didn t really care about the legal case that would be at the heart of this novel and the legalese went on way too long, and I skimmed through much Lastly, I question whether a judge would get away, nor even think he could get away with some of his rulings Would an intelligent person, which as a judge I would presume he was, really think he would be allowed, not questioned about these things Which eventually he was, but for me I would have thought these things would have been apparent to him from the start.This is just my opinion though and as I mentioned many have found this to be a thrilling read, maybe I just wasn t the right reader.ARC from Dutton.

    This was a great book to read along with the Traveling Sisters Group Including Norma, Brenda, Kaceey and myself We had so much fun pointing fingers at all the characters we suspected of the kidnapping I really needed Lindsay to help me out with a believability issue I was having, but she was no where to be found I was transfixed to this book after the first chapter There is no slow build up here, we go straight into the horrifying conclusion that someone has kidnapped the children of Alison and her husband, Judge Scott Sampson They had it all And now it is evaporating before their eyes.The Judge receives a phone call alerting him that the twins are in danger and this is just the beginning of the shattering of their picture perfect family and life He is a judge, he does have influence, but what do they want Who are these kidnappers What are his options and who is involved Scott and Alison are experiencing the worst nightmare any parent could imagine His next move could alter their lives forever He can t afford to make a mistake.The ordeal that follows is a frantic, twisted chain of events that will bring out lies and deceit and the question who to trust Do you really know who your married to and what they might be capable of So many questions So little time A fast paced and energy filled story that kept me picking it up every chance I had I read it in a couple of days It was very emotional at times involving the two kids and very intense It is a combination of legal, domestic, and psychological thriller which I really enjoyed The Traveling Sisters full reviews can be read herehttps twogirlslostinacouleereading.

    Actual rating 4.5 stars This is a brilliant combination of child kidnapping, a legal thriller and a psychological thriller.It s blended wonderfully I was really into this book from very early pages and the ending just about ripped my heart out Judge Sampson, his wife Alison and his two twins are a happy family The Judge is well respected and regarded for his decisions in the courtroom and life is fairly peachy Until one day when it all changes and darkness descends upon the familyThis book really kept me guessing I had no idea of the reveals and twists that it through up at me and for that reason I was hooked Wanting and Judge Sampson has to make life and death choices that nobody should have to make Will he do the right thing It s got got loads of surprises, full of suspects and suspicion who the hell can you trust Judge Scott Sampson can t let his kids down He s a daddy after all This is an intricate web of lies, blackmail and power play that will thrill readers I really enjoyed this book hugely and it s very well written.Some scenes are very powerful especially at the end I was choked up with tears.Put this one on your to read list whether you like crime, child abduction cases, legal thrillers or family psychological dramas It s all here Awesome 4.5 stars from me I received an ARC of this book thanks to the publisher via NetGalkey All views are entirely my own and totally unbiased.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Thank you to the author, Brad Parks, and the publisher, Faber Faber, for this opportunity.The terrifying subject of abduction is explored here in a twisted and yet sensitive light When Judge Scott Sampson receives a text from his wife, stating that his weekly swim with his six year old twins has to be postponed due to a doctor s appointment, he feels nothing but slight disappointment When he arrived home, however, to find his wife has no knowledge of the text sent from her own phone and their twins nowhere in sight, disappointment morphs into agitation This heightens into terror and grief when an anonymous phone caller reveals that his precious children are now being used as collateral A preferred case outcome will see twins, Sam and Emma, released back to their parents The caller has only one rule for them say nothing.The fast pace of this novel had me tearing through the pages in my eagerness to know The multiple twists and red herrings made the outcome an unguessable one and the impact of it that much greater.I found the initial fast pace distanced me from the characters, however I felt I wasn t given sufficient time to acclimatise to the plot or get to empathise with the characters before the abduction occurred and the terrain was altered This initially distanced me from any emotion towards the events depicted but my reservations didn t last long before I was once again swept away by the terror and angst exuded from this novel.The reader is given a simultaneous insight into the grief of parents without their children, the children themselves as they live their terrifying situation, the abductors perspectives, and the legal aspects of this thriller due to the nature of Scott s line of work These multiple viewpoints really fleshed out the story and made for a unique reading experience The reader is invited into the mindset of all the characters, which really drove the subject matter home and gave the narrative added tension.Parks has done a brilliant job of capturing the gravity of the situation discoursed and has created an unputdownable thriller in the process I can t wait to read from this skilled author.

    3.5 starsThe book begins with every parent s worst nightmare Judge Scott Sampson wife Alison get a phone call one afternoon just like that, life as they know it is over Someone has snatched their 6 year old twins The instructions are simple say nothing.The next call concerns a drug case Scott is due to pass sentence on It s pretty open shut but if he wants to see the twins again, he has no choice but to follow the kidnappers directions He doesn t know it yet but it s just the first step in his dealings with a very organized resourceful enemy.This is a stand alone novel by the author of the popular Carter Ross series Chapters alternate between the bad guys the 2 MC s so we get both sides of the story Scott Alison are in full on fight or flight mode as the book progresses, cracks begin to appear as they struggle to make the right decisions There s emphasis on action than character development but that s a minor complaint for a book in this genre.It s a fast paced emotionally charged read that should appeal to fans of straight up suspense thrillers And it might make wonder what you re capable of if pushed too far.
