The second serial killer in less than a year is prowling
the streets of Miami, systematically killing off some of South Florida's most
beautiful young women. Detective Al Warner is just back on The Job, fully recovered from a bullet wound, glancing off his head
is in the best shape of his life, but his days are
laced with headaches and his sleep fraught with terrifying dreams. Lack of rest clouds his usually laser-sharp mind but doesn’t slow his ingle-minded hunt for this new killer.
Angie Dedios is a magnetic man, seducing stunning young women who posed nude for men's magazines. He "redeems" them for their "sins"in the name of God, brutally strangling them as they complete sex, intoning "the Lord Calls."
and the FBI’s BAU become more
frustrated as each new death provides plenty of evidence it’s the same Unsub,
but no new clues to his identity. They learn the
killers name, and realizes it’s really Angel de Dios… the Angel of God... but they are helpless as more beauties dies with no new leads as to his real
identity. Then Warner’s love, Sharon Clark, becomes a target for this mad man,
and Warner must stop him before she is his 8th victim. Only chance again brings
them all together in one final deadly dance of terror.
The cave-black darkness is still, silent. Jackee Maren’s heart hammers her breast, terror searing her veins. Someone’s coming. No way out. This time they will kill me. Her breath is short, her chest burns. Gotta run. Faster. Faster! Her eyes fly open, her heart still racing with blinding fear. Jackee breathes deeply with relief and stares at the ceiling desperately trying to calm herself. The same dream. Something, someone is watching… and waiting.
A surgical accident stemming from a tragic car accident leaves beautiful, vibrant Jackee Maren completely paralyzed, mentally alert but trapped in “Locked-in Syndrome,” able to move only her eyes. Jackee’s husband, Phil, is devastated, her two young boys left with nothing but a shell for a mother. Still, Jackee senses the foreboding of an evil presence and suspects time is short.
Jackee ‘s physical therapist, Kevin, teaches to communicate by blinking. Slowly, she realizes her car accident was no accident, and knows she must expose the person who wants her dead before they get a second chance.
While Jackee puzzles to put all the clues together, she discovers she has the ability to sense the thoughts of others. She hides this talent from everyone but her sons, not knowing whom she can trust. By actively exercising her new psychic ability, Jackee finally learns who masterminded the accident, but seems helpless to stop them from finishing her off.
Gradually a psychic plan forms to not only ensure her boys are safe forever, but to exact revenge on her would-be murderer. Jackee vows not to rest until this villian understands what it is to be TRAPPED!
George Bernstein has really done a wonderful job with his novel, "Trapped." Imagine if you went in for routine surgery and were trapped in a coma - seemingly unresponsive, but in fact you were fully aware of what was going on around you. Imagine that you find you also have "awoken" with a psychic ability to KNOW how others are feeling. Imagine if you determined that your "accident" was no accident! "Trapped" is a wonderful, gripping thriller that grabs the reader's attention from the first page and refuses to let go.
(Five Star) Ann Snizek Amazon review from: Kindle
Intense is the first word that comes to mind in this story! Bernstein does an amazing job a making you feel the frustration, anger, fear, and determination of Jackee. It took me a little time to understand Jackee's situation, but then I think that is how Bernstein wanted it. After all, it took Jackee some time to understand as well.
I didn't feel any slow parts in this story. The only dragging I noticed was it dragging me ever onward. It felt like an edge of your seat read, constantly wanting to know what would happen next and how Jackee would cope. All I can tell you is you MUST read this to find out!
Trapped was an exciting read that I'm sure I will read again. I even plan to buy this in print to have it on my shelf. Thank you George Bernstein for this great book.
(Four Star) -Donna Miller Amazon review from Kindle
This book was recommended to me as a fascinating, quick read. I was somewhat hesitant at first, but once I began the book, I could not put it down. An interesting concept, as you feel you are truly inside the brain of the main character.
