His Kidnappers Shoes is a psychological thriller Maggie James style. Daniel is a young adult in the midst of a life changing event. The mother who raised him isn’t actually his mother, instead she is the woman who kidnapped him. The story is written from alternating points of view between Daniel and his “mother”. James draws the reader into both their worlds and sympathy swells for each character.
Through their inner dialogue and experiences James builds their characters. Daniel turns to drugs and cheap sex while his “mother” has a pity party and only wishes for him to forgive her. She isn’t an evil person, simply a person who went through many hardships at a young age, and Daniel was her “savior”.
This isn’t so much a suspenseful story as one that reveals secrets in tidbits. It’s a clue finding mission and journey of compassion. As a reader I love mysteries and Maggie James is a master. I couldn’t put the story down. I had to find the next clue to piece together the puzzle. Top notch read!
His Kidnapper's Shoes can also be bought as part of the Shadows of the Mind Box Set.
