Last Seen Wearing

Veronica Black, Author St. Martin's Press $15.95 (175p) ISBN 978-0-312-05888-3
In this adroit thriller by the author of A Vow of Silence , single mother Joy Prentice fears that her three-year-old daughter, Sally, kidnapped from the London restaurant where Joy works, has been murdered. The police investigation gets nowhere until Joy begins receiving notes from the kidnapper--whom police experts believe to be a deeply disturbed man--implying that Sally is still alive, but not for long. Although there are no official suspects, Joy believes one of two men has abducted the child: either Sally's father or a mysterious stranger who recently tried to befriend the young mother. Then when the kidnapper reveals his demented intentions, Joy must outthink the police and outwit her daughter's captor. With a flair for detail Black tells a tale as riveting as a tabloid headline.
