Book Review for 'Captured' by Neil Cross

Captured was written by Neil Cross and published by Simon & Schuster, UK. You may purchase it a

What would you do if you were given only a few, short weeks to live? Kenny Drummond is given that terrible news and decides to make a list of people he needs to make things right with before he dies. On his list is Callie Barton, a girl he went to grammar school with who was always nice to him when the other children were not.

Kenny sets out to tell Callie that he never forgot the kindness she showed him, but finds that she has mysteriously gone missing. There is suspicion around her disappearance, but her husband has been cleared of any involvement. No one knows for certain whether she was murdered or if she decided to leave on her own. Kenny feels he needs to find out what happened to her before he dies so that he can repay her for her kindness so many years ago.

This story by Neil Cross makes the reader ask, what would you do if you knew your time was limited? The story is interesting and the characters are honest and engaging. When you think it’s over, there’s still more to come. This novel was a quick read and I enjoyed it very much. It kept my attention and had me guessing what would happen next. I am giving Captured 3 spiders and recommending it to anyone who loves a good mystery.
