Powers's third thriller (after Sunflower and Bleeding Heart), a gripping mix of a smalltown police procedural with a snazzy woman-in-jeopardy plot, will remind many of early Mary Higgins Clark and Sandra Browne. Working mother Kate Warner's peaceful life in suburban Pickard, Ill., is shattered when her eight-year-old daughter, Jenny, gets off the school bus one afternoon and disappears just steps away from home. To make matters worse, Kate's husband and Jenny's devoted dad, Richard, becomes the prime suspect. Other suspects include Richard's sophisticated business associate, a local physician and the spooky anonymous caller who keeps taunting the Warners. Despite some predictable twists, this tight suspense novel with its credible characters will keep readers turning the pages. Author tour. (Oct.)

Living in a nightmare

According to the back flap of Death Angel, Martha Powers is the author of 11 novels, including the psychological thriller Sunflower. Death Angel expands upon the theme of every parent's greatest nightmare, the kidnapping of a young child. One minute Jenny Warner is on her way home from school; the next minute, she is swept into a dark sedan for what will prove to be the final ride of her short life. Things go from awful to even worse when Jenny's father, Richard Warner, is singled out as the prime suspect in his daughter's death. Kate Warner, Richard's wife, finds that her friends and neighbors regard her with suspicion; she has virtually nowhere to turn for solace. Then her husband disappears, barely one step ahead of the police who believe they have gathered enough evidence to arrest him. It is up to Kate, with the help of a dedicated cop and one close friend, to unravel the mystery of her daughter's untimely death and her husband's disappearance. Thing is, neither of her able-bodied assistants may have Kate's best interests at heart. Good twists abound, and the taut plot development will keep the reader turning the pages long after bedtime. Death Angel is the first Martha Powers novel I have had the pleasure of reading; it will not be the last.
