“Ambitious…Parker is a captivating and complex protagonist, one whose pithy observations about New York are dead on. Pinter’s chunky plot, rapid pacing and credible dialogue do the rest.” 

–Publishers Weekly

“An intriguing mystery plagues reporter Henry Parker, who risks his career to find the truth in Pinter’s third series entry. This thriller proves truly scary as it explores every parent’s worst nightmare. It’s also great to see favorite characters back in action; the next book can’t come fast enough.”

Library Journal

“Pinter has been on the thriller landscape for three books and things are looking very good for this series. Strap yourself in because there’s no stopping this train, but who’d be dumb enough to want off anyway?

CrimeSpree Magazine

“The third installment of Pinter’s Henry Parker series is a strong effort with plenty of chilling moments.”

–Romantic Times BOOKreviews (4 Stars)

“The latest Henry Parker investigative tale is an exciting whodunit…Fans will appreciate this entertaining suspense thriller with the right touch of sexual tension to augment a fine read.”

Midwest Book Review

“The investigation is well-paced and the alternate points of view add a measure of suspense…Henry is a likeable character who comes across as a good, solid reporter.”

–Mysterious Reviews 

“Pinter is a force to be reckoned with in the thriller world. His plots are smart, his writing is crisp, and Henry Parker is everything a hero should be.”


“Readers who find no usual enjoyment from a book labelling itself as a ‘crime/thriller’ tour de force need look away no more. Jason Pinter is sure to emerge as one of the most interesting new crime writers of his generation, drawing in novices and fans of the genre alike.”

–The Book Bag (UK)

“Powered by a spectacular lead male character, an increasingly intriguing female character and a twisty stumper of a mystery, this third Parker suspense is a charmer. Pinter pulls readers into this lively, child abduction suspense quickly and keeps the pace moving smoothly while giving more insight into an ever delightful Henry Parker. ”

–Romance Reader at Heart

“I enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down.  This is a great thriller and I bet you won’t be able to figure it out until the end. The two main characters are interesting together…but these two are so different and yet so similar that the extra “heat” added to the book’s intensity and was a nice touch.”

Rebeccas Reads

“THE STOLEN is a multi-layered thriller that has no faults. The only problem with a Henry Parker novel is that you simply cannot put one down once you open the cover. And you are guaranteed a fabulous and exciting roller coaster reading experience… lots of action and never a dull moment, do not miss this story!”
