After finally quitting a stressful real estate career, Janet was content just being at home for her husband Eddie and for her two kids, Robbie and Gabrielle. Life had finally slowed down, and Janet had every intention of keeping it that way. But after a day of mundane errands, Janet returns home to find out that the bank branch she had deposited checks at that day had been robbed at gunpoint -- almost immediately after she had driven off. Extremely glad to have missed that drama, Janet called herself lucky and soon put the episode out of her mind and went back to her now simple life. 
Out of the blue, Janet gets a call from a man named David who hadn't been so lucky that day at the bank. He had been in the bank while it was being robbed and had experienced the whole frightening ordeal. Janet, glad to be talking to a pleasant person and not an angry client on the phone, agrees to meet David for coffee so she can hear all about the bank robbery. But their simple chat over coffee turns into a nightmare as Janet is violently drawn into David's ugly marital troubles with his soon to be ex-wife Kelly. Janet is forced to match wits with this angry and scorned woman, to save herself and David from whatever Kelly has planned for them. 
With her first novel, Trina Ator Ernst has created a fast-paced psychological thriller with so many twists and turns you will be kept guessing until the very end "who is the real
victim".

Book Description Zone Publishing, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Trina Ator Ernst (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. FROM KIRKUS REVIEWS ----- In Ernst s debut thriller, a married woman accepts a casual invitation which leads to a kidnapping. Former realtor Janet has a good husband, two adult children and a decent life. . While at a bank, she has a chance encounter with a stranger and departs--barely missing a bank robbery. Later, the stranger, David, calls her after finding her contact information on a real estate website. Eventually, she agrees to meet David at a Starbucks to chat and hear more about his experience as a hostage during the holdup; Janet tells no one of her plans, including her husband. David seems likable, but Janet declines his invitation to go to his house to evaluate his property. In the coffee shop s parking lot, David s wife, Kelly, accosts the pair, believing Janet to be David s girlfriend. Soon, Kelly kidnaps them at gunpoint, forces them into Janet s car and takes them to an isolated underground location in the woods. Like the principal characters in Chevy Stevens STILL MISSING (2010) and Emma Donoghue s ROOM (2010), Janet is held against her will and treated abominably, but, unlike those novels, the narrative is limited almost exclusively to Janet s entrapment--nary a page is devoted to her family s reaction to her sudden, unexplained disappearance. David and Kelly tell Janet their respective tales of marital woe, and, as a sort of amateur counselor, she psychoanalyzes their twisted marriage. Readers may at times feel like rubberneckers passing a grisly accident, wanting to see just how bad the relationship smashup is. One can t help but root for beleaguered Janet, who s remarkably resilient and compassionate in adversity. . A claustrophobic, occasionally suspenseful three-character tale.
