He gave up his daughter years ago, but now he’ll risk his life to save hers.
Alex Mercer is no stranger to kidnappings. The emotional scars still run deep from his sister’s disappearance years earlier.

At least until he pauses to answer a text and Ariana disappears…
Wracked with guilt and determined to find answers, Alex teams up with an unlikely ally at the police department. As the clues reveal a pattern of missing girls, the kidnapping case becomes a race against time to save Ariana. What cost is Alex willing to pay to keep his daughter alive?

The main character is an absentee father who is worshiped by the daughter he abandoned to such a degree that their creepy relationship left me feeling extremely uneasy. After showing little interest in his daughter for most of her life he suddenly decides to take her out for the night and throw a sickie the following day so he can spend more time with her - which immediately sets the alarm bells ringing. He also has the best time EVER in a kiddies play zone. Wow.
The daughter is apparently a young teenager but she acts like a six-year-old (visiting a soft play area with daddy is the greatest treat ever and she's forever gushing how much she loves being with him). She dresses like a sixteen-year-old and has friends who are obviously a little more switched on, yet she spends 364 days every year preparing for that year's Halloween party - really? We're meant to accept this as fact - that's how unbelievable this character is.. And when she willingly goes off with a stranger we hope that she'll end up dead and put us out of our misery.
Judging by other low-scoring reviews on here, things don't get any better. Maybe that's why this writer decided to throw this one out as a freebie. But I still feel robbed.
Unfortunately characters are not anywhere near credible and the plot is not just implausible but unbelievable. Individuals are largely flawed and illogical, and the story is a string of unexplained happenings, shifts in relationships and countless coincidences. Main protagonist Alex Mercer, is looking after his daughter Ariana when she is kidnapped, but he is living separately and not married to her single mother Zoey, who is engaged to someone else and living with her parents who are Ariana’s grandparents, and Alex’s parents are also part of this mixed-up family. To complicate matters further there is Alex’s sister who was herself abducted some years ago, and the main police Captain also has his own nightmares over losing children. Too many coincidences for me!
Hotspots of conflict are interwoven as Alex is a person of interest and he is hounded by trolls, and Zoey’s fiancé is suspected, and the investigators lack awareness with FBI over-riding local police. Such issues cloud the storyline where the only suspense generated is by keeping readers uninformed. Luckily Alex unexpectedly recognises the kidnapper in a supermarket! Come on – this is ridiculous! I carried on reading up to the denouement but found this an anti-climax. My criticisms may be ignored by readers seeking swashbuckling attributes, but for me ‘Girl In Trouble’ can be no better than average – hence 3-star rating.
