I haven't been truly gobsmacked by a book in a long time, and I Am in Here literally took my breath away! The premise of this suspense thriller, set in a volatile family predicament that seems to go from bad to worse by the minute, is brilliantly told in part by the brain-injured son no one knows is still "in there." Hale's perspective keeps us quite literally holding our breath and anxiously turning pages all the way to the end. Creston Mapes is the most gifted suspense writer I know; how he ratchets up the drama blows me away. I loved this book!
