It Only Takes a Moment: A Novel of Suspence by Mary Jane Clark

I found this book a little light for my taste. The short chapters were disconcerting and I felt that the characters lacked depth and I was not invested in their safety. I t was an easy read and I finished it quickly which was fine as the story felt quite superficial and suited the brief writing style.
I can see that the author knows well the politics of the newsroom and television reporting as this reads more like a script for a show than an in depth story based on the kidnapping of a child. I felt none of the urgency that I should have felt.
One thing that intrigued me was the surprise that I encountered at the end of the book. The villain was NOT who I expected it to be.
