K.L. Barnes ... Is Dreaming Up Suspense !

Maeve Tidewell - Pay Series

 

A ravaged corpse is discovered in the mountains while a local medical specialist goes missing without a trace.  A young woman and her children suddenly disappear and the only witness is a teenage boy who doesn’t realize yet what he’s seen.  
Ben Drake hopes to strengthen his relationship with his teenage son Jason during a road trip that takes them from their home in California to the Mountains of Colorado.  Their plans are interrupted when they are unexpectedly drawn into a police investigation involving Maeve Tidewell and her two young daughters.  Ben and Jason are compelled to keep searching for the missing family near a cabin they have discovered deep in the woods, and an almost psychic connection draws Ben toward a dangerous, and possibly deadly, confrontation.
Meanwhile Maeve finds herself held captive, along with her daughters and the missing doctor, by a disturbed man from her past.  They work together to devise a plan to overpower the gruesome killer before he decides the time is right for them to die.  Somehow, fate brings them all together in a brave and desperate attempt to escape a bizarre kidnapper.
