"On her way to Utah to see her dying mother, college student Darby Thorne gets caught in a fierce blizzard in the mountains of Colorado. With the roads impassable, she's forced to wait out the storm at a remote highway rest stop. Inside are some vending machines, a coffee maker, and four complete strangers. Desperate to find a signal to call home, Darby goes back out into the storm...and makes a horrifying discovery. In the back of the van parked next to her car, a little girl is locked in an animal crate. Who is the child? Why has she been taken? And how can Darby save her? There is no cell phone reception, no telephone, and no way out. One of her fellow travelers is a kidnapper. But which one? Trapped in an increasingly dangerous situation, 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?"
This book turned out to be way different than what I had expected from reading the inside cover. With dozens of perfectly placed plot twists and countless twists and turns in the storyline, No Exit is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat. Would I recommend this book? Definitely, mind you there are parts of the book that get a little darker (details about injuries as they happen within the book), and a sensitive reader may have to set the book down to catch their breath, but I think anyone who enjoys a good mystery/thriller/suspense novel will love this book. I thoroughly enjoyed No Exit and I hope those of you who choose to give it a try enjoy it just as well.
