Stolen takes FBI profiler Special Agent Atticus Spenser and forensic psychiatrist Dr. Caitlin Cassidy on an investigation to finding out if a killer is a monster that lives within or is one that has been hiding in the shadows.
Laura Chaucer lived through at nightmare when she was 8 years old. Problem is her memory is hazy about the events that lead up to her and her nanny being kidnapped and her nanny being murdered. In the years since, her psychiatrist has had her on medications that only messed with her mind more. Now in college she has taken herself off the medications but in doing so the faint memory she has of the monster from all those years ago has return – but is he just a hallucination and she the monster or is he real and now back for her.
Now that Spence and Caitlin have admitted their feelings for one another and committed to a relationship I think its improved their professional relationship and makes them a formidable team in chasing down serial killers and bringing them to justice. Their quirkiness just makes them all the more lovable as a couple and partners.
The author throws in some red herrings during the investigation to keep us on our toes until the twisted surprise conclusion that shows us monsters are real and closer than you think.
