9780006513537: Eleven Hours

Page-turning thriller from the bestselling author of Tully.

A heavily pregnant young woman is leaving the shopping mall to head home on a horribly hot day in Texas. Her normal life of shopping, husband, children, with the extra excitement of the imminent baby, stretches before her.

And then she is bundled into a car and kidnapped by a desperate young man.

What does he want? Where are they going?

In scenes that alternate between the desperate husband, pursuing by car and helicopter with an alarmingly laid-back FBI man, who may or may not be as good as he thinks he is at rescuing hostages, and the more and more threatened wife, Eleven Hours is a tour de force of storytelling power from an author with a proven track-record of delivering the goods.

Review:

Tully

“Pick up this book and prepare to have your emotions wrung so completely you’ll be sobbing your heart out one minute and laughing through your tears the next… Read it and weep – literally”
Company

From the Back Cover:

The sun beats down on the parking lot of a Texas shopping mall.

Heavily pregnant and not at all comfortable in the relentless heat, Didi Wood is leaving for home, moving slowly through her regular routine of shopping, husband, children, with the extra excitement of the imminent baby always at the back of her mind.

And then she is bundled into a car and kidnapped by a desperate young man.

What does he want? Where are they going?

Only the excruciating tension of the next eleven hours will tell.

Scenes of knife-edge drama alternate between Didi's anguished husband Rich, pursuing by car and helicopter with an alarmingly laid-back FBI man, who may or may not be as good as he thinks he is at rescuing hostages, and Didi herself, whose life is hanging by a fast-diminishing thread. 'Eleven Hours' is a tour de force of storytelling power from the bestselling author of 'Tully' and 'Red Leaves'.

"'[Tully]' reads fast, like a sudden surge of wind over the plains, and the book's momentum builds to tornado force"
USA TODAY

"You'll never look at life the same way again. Pick up this book and prepare to have your emotions wrung so completely you'll be sobbing your heart out one minute and laughing through your tears the next. Tully could be any one of us – a young woman who is strong, full of hope and carrying a lot of childhood baggage. Her experiences of pain, despair and betrayal are offset by moments of dazzling joy, love and, above all, friendship. Read it and weep – literally.
