FICTION SUSPENSE & THRILLERS
What Sarah Saw
by Margaret Daley
A three year old girl is the only witness after the death of her father
and the disappearance of her mother. Dr. Jocelyn Gold finds herself
drawn into the case despite her personal misgivings. Not only is
Jocelyn friends with the Leah, the missing mother of Sarah, but she has
a past history with FBI agent Sam Pierce. The only clue is Sarah’s
frightened reaction to a once-beloved redheaded doll. With a
plethora of redheads potentially involved, can Sam and Jocelyn discover
WHAT SARAH SAW?
Margaret Daley is at the top of her game with WHAT SARAH SAW! The deft
character development and skillful build up of the suspense keep the
reader on the edge of the seat, anxiously waiting to see what lies
ahead. Please note, however, that WHAT SARAH SAW is the first book of
the continuity series, Without a Trace, and thus there are details and
mysteries that left unresolved for future books. Don’t think that
WHAT SARAH SAW
isn’t a complete story, however, as Margaret Daley ensures readers will
delve deeply into the faith, fears, and hopes of her hero and heroine.
The issues of guilt and forgiveness are prominent themes throughout
WHAT SARAH SAW. I found it particularly interesting the way she
weaves Jocelyn and Sam’s dedication to doing their jobs in with the
overall themes. The fear of failure and the anguish they both
feel over a past death is one that haunts many counselors and law
enforcement personnel and Ms. Daley does an excellent job at conveying
those emotions. More importantly, she intertwines how their faith
in God helps with the overall healing process and enables them to do
their sometimes very difficult jobs. As a social worker, I find
this to be both uplifting and realistic and am very impressed at
Margaret Daley’s sensitivity and insight into these issues.
WHAT SARAH SAW is
an impressive start to what looks to be a riveting series.
Margaret Daley provides a careful balance of suspense, romance, and
inspiration to produce a thought-provoking and uplifting tale of hope
in the midst of sorrow. Beautiful, simply beautiful!
