From the back cover: When a routine 911 call turns deadly, paramedic Sara Dyer finds herself held at gunpoint by injured prison inmate, Jason Keegan. The situation rapidly spirals out of Sara’s control when the confrontation becomes a tense standoff between Keegan and the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service.
As her patient’s hostage, Sara fights to save them both before Keegan blows them up. She realizes his warning to the Cayman police is no empty threat since he’d rather die than spend the rest of his life in a prison cell. Sara soon discovers Keegan is just as determined to survive as she is―provided he can escape Grand Cayman and disappear forever. As she struggles to trust in God’s protection, help from an atheist turns her struggle into a lure away from her faith.
In Greek mythology Persephone was abducted by Hades, the god-king of the underworld to be his queen. In this story Persephone is a sailboat that will be used by Keegan to escape from Grand Cayman. He is using Sara as both a shield and a hostage as he simply does not want to go to jail on the island. If anything can go wrong it will and it simply does not look good for Sara. Danger, mayhem and thrills all figure into this highly complicated plot. Anger,resentment, overwhelming fear, letting go, forgiveness and faith are all explored as the plot unfolds. “Persephone’s Fugitive” is loaded with twists and turns and red herrings that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. Ms. Benson has provided us with a fairly exciting book. I am glad I found this talented unique author and am so looking forward to the next book in this series.
