Snatch Girl by L. J. Kane


Girl missing. What if you’re with her all the way through to the end… if it ends…? Will Ellie survive? Would you?

The Shocking, Fast-Paced, Suspense Thriller That Will Hook You From The Very First Line.

Snatched from her sadistic captor’s lair by his own getaway driver, eighteen-year-old student Ellie realises that she’s still kidnapped. As the enigmatic Darren Broderick drives off into the night with the terrified girl beside him, the sadistic Jon Braddon is not far behind.

Thrown together, on opposing sides, Darren and Ellie must stay one step ahead of Braddon’s twisted mind, and Ellie must resist Darren’s Aussie charms to the end. Darren Broderick needs the ransom, Braddon needs a victim. And he will fight to the death to get her back. ​




First things first, this book is for adults only and due to its content it may offend some of those.  The story, set on Dartmoor and Salisbury, is about the abduction of an 18-year-old girl who is subsequently raped and held captive for a ransom by two men.  Jon Braddon is sadistic and violent with the victim Ellie to the point that the get away driver, Darren Broderick decides enough is enough and goes on the run with her himself. Not that he is letting her go until the ransom for her is paid, if ever, but he is the lesser of the two evils.

Jon Braddon is a little bit jarred off, to say the least and so he becomes determined to get Ellie back and make her suffer that is after taking Darren out of the picture permanently. What follows are some very intense violent scenes between him, Darren and Ellie.

Besides the heavy stuff, this is a very gripping story where fear jumps put at every page, tension runs high and the thought of anyone making it to the final paragraph getting less as the story went on. It would make a really good film. One of those that you know that the bad guy is safely locked away to look again and see the door open. The OMG moments of the big screen. Well Jon Braddon is like that, no matter what you do he is always creeping up behind you. Really, really, tense!

I loved the descriptions of Dartmoor, it felt cold with falling snow an unforgiving, beautiful but harsh landscape, and as unpredictable as both Braddon and Ramsey. I really liked the plot and the setting but not Ellie’s reaction to Darren after what had occurred.

A book not for everyone due to the content but a very tense and fast paced read. The story really is gripping and with very few characters extremely intense.
