A unique debut thriller that introduces a heroine like no other.
They thought she was the victim, but they're the ones in danger . . .
You're sixteen, you're pregnant and you've been kidnapped.
If you're anyone else you give in, but if you're a manipulative prodigy you fight back in the only way you can. You use what you've been given against your captors.
You have only one chance to save your life and that of your unborn child. You're calculating, methodical, and as your kidnappers are about to discover, they made a big mistake in abducting you . . .
THE METHOD is what happens when the victim is just as dangerous as the captors.
For fans of Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander, Karin Slaughter and Lisa Gardner, THE METHOD turns the girl-in-jeopardy genre on its head.
