Description

"What a box of tricks! This full-throttle thriller, dark and driving, rivals Agatha Christie for sheer ingenuity and James Patterson for flat-out speed. Swift, sharp, and relentless." — A. J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

A brilliant, edgy thriller about four strangers, a blizzard, a kidnapped child, and a determined young woman desperate to unmask and outwit a vicious psychopath.

A kidnapped little girl locked in a stranger's van. No help for miles. What would you do?

On her way to Utah to see her dying mother, college student Darby Thorne gets caught in a fierce blizzard in the mountains of Colorado. With the roads impassable, she's forced to wait out the storm at a remote highway rest stop. Inside are some vending machines, a coffee maker, and four complete strangers.

Desperate to find a signal to call home, Darby goes back out into the storm . . . and makes a horrifying discovery. In the back of the van parked next to her car, a little girl is locked in an animal crate.

Who is the child? Why has she been taken? And how can Darby save her?

There is no cell phone reception, no telephone, and no way out. One of her fellow travelers is a kidnapper. But which one?

Trapped in an increasingly dangerous situation, with a child's life and her own on the line, Darby must find a way to break the girl out of the van and escape.

But who can she trust?

With exquisitely controlled pacing, Taylor Adams diabolically ratchets up the tension with every page. Full of terrifying twists and hairpin turns, No Exit will have you on the edge of your seat and leave you breathless.

        College student Darby Thorne, the heroine of this nail-biting thriller from Adams (Our Last Night), braves a Colorado blizzard to try to reach her mother, who’s in the late stages of pancreatic cancer. But the weather is too much for Darby’s aged Honda Civic, and she’s forced to spend the night at a rest stop visitor’s center. The volunteer-run facility is nearly empty, except for four other stranded travelers—a quirky, but seemingly harmless group of strangers. That is, until Darby goes to the parking lot, in search of a cell signal, and finds nine-year old Jamie “Jay” Nissen—mouth duct taped, in a dog crate, locked inside a van. With no cell service and no prospect of the roads being cleared until dawn at the earliest, Darby has to figure out a way to save Jay. The only problem, she doesn’t know which traveler is the kidnapper or who can be trusted. The action drives to a climatic and emotionally charged ending. Only a predictable twist and moments when Jay’s maturity feels beyond her years mar this otherwise satisfying page-turner. Agent: Lorella Belli, Lorella Belli Literary.

        Adams' latest thriller opens with a young woman, Darby Thorne, racing through a snowstorm to see her dying mother. She's forced to give in when the roads are shut down, though, and what was shaping up to be a tiresome night at a rest stop turns suddenly into a twisting tale of kidnapping and violence. The unfolding details of why a little girl whom Darby finds trapped in a van in a parking lot came to be there, who is responsible for her situation, and how the various travelers who are thrown together spend the night prove both gripping and terrifying. Adams peppers the tale with twist after twist; these hairpin turns, coupled with a cast of devious characters, drive the narrative and build suspense. At times, one wonders if Darby really can possibly survive yet another perilous situation, but, overall, this is an enthralling tale that features a wonderfully relatable and gutsy heroine. Give it to readers looking for a female-led drama in the mode of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? and its sibling works.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2018, American Library Association.)

        After learning that her estranged mother is dying, Darby Thorne sets out in the middle of a fierce snowstorm in her old Honda, hoping to get to Utah in time to say good-bye. But the weather halts her plans and deposits her in a Colorado rest area to wait out the blizzard. There she meets other stranded travelers: nice guy Ashley, middle-aged cousins Ed and Sandi, and creepy man-boy Lars. While trying to make a phone call in the parking lot, she matches up the cars with their owners. A snow-covered van gives her pause. Peeking through the vehicle's window, she spies a child's hand reaching out through the bars of a dog cage. Can she believe what she's seeing? Which one of the people inside is the monster behind this, and how can she rescue the child? With minimal resources at her disposal, Darby must flush out the kidnapper, try to rescue the little girl, and survive the night. VERDICT This well-written, fast-paced thriller by Adams (Eyeshot; Our Last Night) has enough twists to ensure an enjoyable read for even the most seasoned suspense fans.
