On her way to Utah to see her dying mother, college student Darby Thorne gets caught in a fierce blizzard in the Colorado Rockies. With the roads impassable, she’s forced to wait out the storm at a remote highway rest stop with no cell phone reception. Inside are some vending machines, a coffee maker, and four complete strangers.
Desperate to find a signal to call home, the exhausted young art student goes back out into the storm . . . and makes a horrifying discovery. In the back of the van parked next to her car is a little girl locked in an animal crate.
Who is the child? Why has she been taken? And how can Darby save her?
There is no way to call for help and no way out. One of her fellow travelers is a kidnapper. But which one?
Trapped in an increasingly dangerous situation on the edge of civilization, with a child’s life and her own on the line, Darby must find a way to break the girl out of the van and escape.
But who can she trust?
For me, it would be terrifying enough to have to drive in a snow storm. End of story. Needless to say, No Exit had me filled with nervous energy throughout the entire read.
Could you turn your back on a kidnapped child?
My answer would be no. As was the answer for Darby Thorne, our main character. When Darby catches a glimpse of a child in the back of a parked van, she naturally begins to self doubt. She tries to convince herself that it was her imagination. How could the people she’s met at this snowed-in rest stop be kidnappers? Once she comes to terms with what she’s seen, Darby has to somehow rescue the child, and survive a long night trapped at a rest stop with a psychopath.
This one is a heart stopper!
