In Desperation by Rick Mofina

What did I think?

‘In Desperation’ by Rick Mofina is the third and latest installment of his Jack Gannon series. I’m a new reader of Mofina, and until reading this book, I was totally unaware of this series. At the completion of ‘In Desperation’ I can tell you one thing...it’s time for me to do some back tracking because there is no way I can stop reading Rick Mofina’s work now.

In the middle of the night Cora Martin is bound to a chair and watches as two men walk out of her home with her eleven year old daughter, Tilly. Where they are taking her, Cora doesn’t know, but she does know they will kill Tilly unless Cora finds her boyfriend and the 5 million dollars he has stolen from a Mexican drug cartel.Struggling to find her boyfriend and having no clues regarding Tilly’s whereabouts, Cora decides to contact her estranged brother and famed journalist Jack Gannon for help. Desperate for Tilly’s safe return home, Cora will do anything for her daughter’s safety, even if that includes facing her own demons.

Mofina kept plowing the story forward with great character development and constant scene changes and with the completion of each chapter I was spellbound into the next. ‘In Desperation’ was an intensely suspenseful and electrifying read, leaving nothing untouched. I was like Mofina’s puppet turning page after page, just waiting to see how this story was going to unfold and how it would work itself out. I would compare ‘In Desperation’ to the energizer bunny, it just keep going and going! What a great read!

How many stars?
