29 SECONDS T. M. LOGAN
When Sarah rescues a young girl in trouble, she expects nothing in return. But her act of bravery puts a powerful and dangerous man in her debt. He lives by his own brutal code, and all debts must be repaid - in the only way he knows how.
He offers Sarah a way to solve a desperate situation with her intolerable boss. A once-in-a-lifetime deal that will make all her problems disappear.
No consequences. No comeback. No chance of being found out.
All it takes is a 29-second phone call.
Because everyone has a name to give. Don't they?

The review of this book is the easy part. The author keeps you guessing as to what is going to happen all the way to the end which had me going as well. Dr. Sarah Haywood an English professor is wanting to be put on permanent. With two children to take care of and who knows where and if her husband is going to come home she is the bread maker. Her problem is the man in charge Dr. Hawthorne is wanting her to do sexual favors in order to secure the position. He is so well respected in the college and in the BBC that the few women who have gone to HR have been blacked balled themselves not only in England but also in the U.S. Confused and feeling sick she sees and stops an attempted kidnapping of a girl. A few days later she has a meeting with a man who gives her a phone and tells her if she calls him he can make any of her problems go away, or a person disappear. This offer is good for only 72 hours. The next 72 hours you as the character wonder what you do. here is when the book takes a change for she does call but it does not go as planned and everything that she was dealing with before the call has now just increased, intensified. Her mind and feelings are on edge and really you as the reader do not know what she is going to. This why you should read this book for the way the author brings this story to a conclusion is one I did not see. This is a smart read and one that shows I am sure what still goes on in the workplace for women, and being a father of 4 daughters I would hope that they would have a place to go to speak of what is happening. Very much worth the time to read. I received this book from Macmillan. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
