Description

They thought she was the victim, but they're the ones in danger ...Imagine a helpless, pregnant 16-year-old who's just been yanked from the serenity of her home and shoved into a dirty van. Kidnapped ...Alone ...Terrified. Now forget her ...Picture instead a pregnant, 16-year-old, manipulative prodigy. She is shoved into a dirty van and, from the first moment of her kidnapping, feels a calm desire for two things: to save her unborn son and to exact merciless revenge. She is methodical - calculating - scientific in her plotting. Leaving nothing to chance, she waits ...for the perfect moment to strike. The Method is what happens when the victim is just as cold as the captors.

Review quote

Completely original and totally kick ass! Shannon Kirk pulls no punches in this adrenaline rush of a thriller where the victim is the one to watch, while the kidnappers learn to fear. Loved it! Lisa Gardner, New York Times Bestselling author 'A very unique take on a kidnap tale that I'm sure will make waves.' Claire McGowan It's hard to find true originality these days, but this debut delivers, dicing the genre before blending it just to be sure. The characters are beautifully detailed; one in particular having taken up residence in my imagination. Boyd for president. -- Alastair Gunn author of The Advent Killer and My Bloody Valentine Riveting...a thrilling new voice in crime fiction. Boston Globe [The narrator's] willpower and ingenuity prove more than a match for the callous brutality of those who wish her ill as this exciting tale builds to a surprising climax. Publishers Weekly, Starred Review Flat-out brilliant. Mystery Scene A dark, disturbing, damnably readable novel Booklist, Starred Review Crowded with fascinating characters - but the standout is the kidnapped pregnant teenager. Her captors want her baby. Little do they know they've brought an insanely brilliant, angry, vengeful, borderline sociopath under their roof. Somebody's in big trouble ... and it isn't the teenager. F Paul Wilson, New York Times Bestselling Author The Method by Shannon Kirk has an extraordinary plot as well as an extraordinary character ... Make sure you have some extra time as you start this unusual and suspenseful novel. It is darn hard to put down. Book Loons
