He gave up his daughter years ago, but now he'll risk his life to save hers.

Alex Mercer is no stranger to kidnappings. The emotional scars still run deep from his sister's disappearance years earlier. His daughter Ariana remains safe long after her adoption, and he cherishes the few times a year he gets to see her. The joy is palpable when he takes her on their first one-on-one outing. At least until he pauses to answer a text and Ariana disappears…

Wracked with guilt and determined to find answers, Alex teams up with an unlikely ally at the police department. As the clues reveal a pattern of missing girls, the kidnapping case becomes a race against time to save Ariana. What cost is Alex willing to pay to keep his daughter alive?

Girl in Trouble is the first book in a series of thrilling stand-alone novels spun off from the USA Today bestselling Gone Trilogy. If you like heart-pounding suspense, page-turning action, and characters you'll never forget, then you'll love Stacy Claflin's engrossing series.

    I really enjoy the book, in fact, I couldn’t put it down. I read for entertainment and this book filled the bill

  • I have a question.....

    By ericsara
    So I am most likely younger then all of you. Let’s say, 11. Because it’s true. I go to the hospital a lot for chemo and other stuff, so I need something to do. So not “how did you like the book” but “is it okay for me to read it?” Like age appropriate. I really like these kinds of stories, but I’ve only heard them. Never read one. I’ve watched them before though. Anyway, should I read it? It is free after all.🤗
  • One of the better ones

    By TerraKy
    This the first of her books I read and it I like the style. I have not found an author with this style in a LOOOONG time (decades - that’s probably why I stopped reading books. That and most of the books written over the last few decades have been mostly about sex and violence - not my cup ‘o joe). I really like especially how the story begins and the depth of the characters. The only thing I didn’t care for was some of the confusing disconnected or contradictory paragraphs later in the story - towards the end mostly. It got a bit confusing and harder to follow the storyline, almost like the author just wanted to finish writing the book and wanted to rush the ending to get it over with.

    This book was fantastic. Definitely kept me on my toes. I plan to read the whole series!
  • :D

    Very captivating. Gave my brother nightmares for a week though...maybe I shouldn’t have been overly scary when telling him. But, you have to understand the importance of your sibling! They are loyal and helpful! Kind and sweet! Always truthful, and always gentle. Also, happy April fools!
  • Good read

    Besides one or two editing mistakes I noticed, this book was a great read and kept me interested. It’s a good clean read, suitable for all ages.
  • Entertainer

    I used to be an avid reader but lost interest in recent years. Started reading this book and finished reading it in a matter of 3 nights. Interesting plot twist.
  • Craters

    By Whispurrer
    One has to repeatedly suspend logic to get past the gaping plot hole in the “investigation” at the heart of this story. It’s insulting.

    From Marjorie Sparks this book is so amazing that I stayed up all night reading until 1 AM as an avid reader of mystery and murder. You can count on me to keep up with your books but you must know that I need my sleep.
