In the first Afton Tangler thriller, the unforgiving cold of a Minnesota winter hides the truth behind an even more chilling crime... On a frozen night in an affluent neighborhood of Minneapolis, a baby is abducted from her home after her teenage babysitter is violently assaulted. The parents are frantic, the police are baffled, and, with the perpetrator already in the wind, the trail is getting colder by the second. As family liaison officer with the Minneapolis P.D., it’s Afton Tangler’s job to deal with the emotional aftermath of terrible crimes—but she’s never faced a case quite as brutal as this. Each development is more heartbreaking than the last and the only lead is a collection of seemingly unrelated clues. But, most disturbing of all, Afton begins to suspect that this case is not isolated. Whoever did this has taken babies before—and if Afton doesn’t solve this crime soon, more children are sure to go missing . . . From the Hardcover edition.

Time's Hostage is a multifaceted thriller that delves into important social issues while exploring the dark realm of self-destruction and mental instability. With the art world and South Beach as a backdrop, challenges faced by the LGBT community permeate the book. First, turmoil results for both Sophia, the protagonist, and her husband after his homosexual encounter with a friend's son and his ensuing difficulties sorting out his unclear sexual preferences. Then-their daughter comes out as a lesbian. The woman she marries subsequently becomes pregnant by a man, forcing the couple to deal with a double-edged sword-the infidelity and its heterosexual nature. Extramarital dalliances are a recurring theme in Time's Hostage as Sophia finds herself cheating in revenge for her husband's faithlessness. However, her risky affair is as much about indulging a repressed urge for self-destructive behavior as it is about avenging her husband's betrayal. As a psychotherapist, Sophia recognizes her lover's unstable mental state, but her own growing addiction to him leads to a dangerous denial of the potential consequences. As her increasingly symptomatic epilepsy leads to vivid Holocaust hallucinations, she begins to explore her own mental health and questions her convictions-both the ingrained and the taboo.
