24 Hours by Greg Iles ePub

Will Jennings is a successful young doctor in Jackson, Mississippi, with his whole life ahead of him. He has a thriving practice, a beautiful wife, and a young daughter he loves beyond measure. But Will and his family are being watched by a con man and psychopath. A man who has crafted the unbeatable crime. A man who has never been caught, and whose victims have never talked to the police. A man whose life’s work strikes at the heart of every family’s nightmare: the unstoppable kidnapping.

But this man has never met Will and Karen Jennings.

From Publishers Weekly

HAs close to family fare as a kidnapper-rapist-extortionist thriller can get, Iles’s (The Quiet Game) latest brilliantly plotted tale walks the razor’s edge between cinematic excess and bone-chilling suspense. Joe Hickey is a Southern redneck with an Ivy League talent for evil. He has trained his grossly huge, mentally challenged cousin, Huey, and his gorgeous, exotic-dancer, live-in lover, Cheryl, to work with him as part of a tightly controlled kidnap/extortion squad targeting Mississippi physicians’ families while the doctors are off at conferences. 24 Hours by Greg Iles ePub

But he hits a snag when Dr. Will Jennings, his wife, Karen, and their five-and-a-half-year-old daughter, Abby, prove as resourceful solo as they are formidable in tandem. Joe grabs Abby, turning her over to Huey, who drives her off to a remote forest cabin near Jackson; meanwhile, Joe stays behind to terrorize Karen in the Jennings home. Cheryl gets her hooks into the third family member by vamping her way into Will’s hotel room in Biloxi, where Will receives a phone call and ransom demand from Joe, who stipulates delivery in 24 hours. It’s a long, horrific night for all as Iles pits each of the captives against their captors in riveting battles of will.24 Hours by Greg Iles ePub

The well-rounded characters are trademark Iles, the plot runs speed-skating smooth and occasional near-gooey bits of dialogue are offset by nasty surprises and perfectly timed terror. The one-on-one conflicts punch up the pace, and a perfect Mississippi setting, a spot-on sendup of FBI assistance and a hair-raising finale complete the package.

From Library Journal

Joe Hickey has devised a simple but elegant kidnapping scheme, which he has used successfully five times to extort thousands of dollars from wealthy doctors in the Jackson, LA, area. All the children were returned to their parents unharmed; the police were never involved. But Joe’s sixth attempt is special: not only has he decided that it will be his last, but little Abby Jennings is picked because Joe blames Dr. Will Jennings for his mother’s death. 24 Hours by Greg Iles ePub

Time is a significant factor in all of Joe’s kidnappings, for each child is taken and returned within a 24-hour period in order to reduce the possibility of police involvement. The suspense deepens as Will and Karen Jennings panic over the disappearance of their daughter, who suffers from juvenile diabetes and is dependent on daily injections of insulin; they realize Abby will die unless they act to save her. Iles (The Quiet Game) has created a chilling tale of kidnapping, revenge, and family heroics that is calculated to jangle the reader’s every nerve. 24 Hours by Greg Iles ePub

And jangle it will, for 24 Hours is a gut-wrenching action fantasy/thriller that will mesmerize to the bitter end. Recommended for all public libraries.DThomas L. Kilpatrick, Southern Illinois Univ., Carbondale Lib.
