2016 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards Gold Winner Mystery/Suspense
Imagine a helpless, pregnant 16-year-old who's just been yanked from the serenity of her home and shoved into a dirty van. Kidnapped…Alone…Terrified.
Now forget her…
Picture instead a pregnant, 16-year-old, manipulative prodigy. She is shoved into a dirty van and, from the first moment of her kidnapping, feels a calm desire for two things: to save her unborn son and to exact merciless revenge.
She is methodical—calculating— scientific in her plotting. A clinical sociopath? Leaving nothing to chance, secure in her timing and practice, she waits—for the perfect moment to strike. Method 15/33 is what happens when the victim is just as cold as the captors.
The agents trying to find a kidnapped girl have their own frustrations and desires wrapped into this chilling drama. In the twists of intersecting stories, one is left to ponder. Who is the victim? Who is the aggressor?

Extremely absorbing and excellently written! Had a hard time putting it down.
I don’t think I’ve been this frustrated reading a crime novel in a long time. She moves you an inch forward and then retraces 10 steps backwards. I had to skip through 10 pages at a time to get to a place where the story moves forward. She’s a good writer, I don’t begrudge her that. But I couldn’t wait for it to be over.
What a very different way to tell a story. Captivating, could hardly stand to put it down to tend to life’s matters. Loved the main character, her insights and wit. Fascinating characters, twists and turns. I highly recommend this read. Such a pleasant departure from conventional storytelling. Intriguing. High kudos.
