Don't Speak to Strangers

Ten-year-old Jonathan Grady has been warned not to speak to strangers. But when a man in a battered van tells Jonathan that his house has burned down and his parents are dead, the boy is scared and confused. And when the man introduces himself as Leon, a friend of his father, and offers to take him to the safety of his grandmother's house, Jonathan climbs into the van . . . and enters the insane world of a child abductor.

Jonathan arrives at Leon's farm in a deserted countryside and finds another child, Maria, has also been "rescued" by Leon. Jonathan soon senses the full extent of the danger he and Maria are facing.

Now, as the twisted kidnapper grows crazier and more desperate, time is running out—for a young boy, fighting to stay alive; for his devastated parents, fighting the one war every parent dreads; and for FBI Special Agent Kira Thomasian, fighting the most harrowing battle of her career.
