Summary

Kept 
An Erin Lee Thriller 
Inspired by a true story 
Bree’s destiny had always been kept. 
Like a dirty secret, it was nearly impossible to escape a certain dark fate. A victim of circumstance determined to survive, she only wanted someone to trust. But it wouldn’t come easy. 
First, it was the family life that forced her to run away from home at age fifteen. 
Next, it was her son’s father, Le, who pulled her from friends, locking her into a toxic web of abuse and drugs. 
Then came the addiction, which chained her to methadone clinics and seclusion. 
In spite of it all, Bree refused to allow anyone to put out her fire, which burned brightest in the love of her son, Noah. 
Just when she was beginning to turn things around and had repaired her relationships, came the final blow. 
Locked in isolation and desperate for someone to put her trust in, Bree began talking to a mysterious man over the Internet. Placing her trust in him was the biggest mistake of her life. 
Now, caught in his evil web, she must decide—once and for all—how to take control of her life. 
It starts with a can of gasoline and a simple spark. From there, comes the fire. 
In the end, she determines, it won’t be Bree who is kept by anyone ever again.

    The Little Prince is a work in French language, the most famous by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Published in 1943 in New York simultaneously in English and French, it’s a poetic and philosophical tale in the guise of a children's story. It has simple and uncluttered language, because it is intended to be understood by children, and, in fact, for the narrator, it is the preferred vehicle of a symbolic conception of life. Each chapter talks about a meeting of the little prince who leaves him perplexed about the absurd behavior of grown-ups. Each of these meetings can be read as an allegory. The watercolor paintings are part of the text and participate in this purity of language: simplicity and deepness are the key qualities of the work. You can read an invitation from the author to find the child in yourself, because all grown-ups were first children (but few of them remember). The book is dedicated to Léon Werth, but when he was a little boy.

    The Skimm Reads calls it "a thriller that's part True Detective, part The Girl On The Train. All parts gripping." 
    Husbands and wives. Mothers and daughters. The past and the future.  
    Secrets bind them. And secrets can destroy them.  
    The author of Pretty Girls returns with an electrifying, emotionally complex thriller that plunges its fascinating protagonist into the darkest depths of a mystery that just might destroy him.  
    With the discovery of a murder at an abandoned construction site, Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is brought in on a case that becomes much more dangerous when the dead man is identified as an ex-cop.  
    Studying the body, Sara Linton—the GBI’s newest medical examiner and Will’s lover—realizes that the extensive blood loss didn't belong to the corpse. Sure enough, bloody footprints leading away from the scene indicate there is another victim—a woman—who has vanished . . . and who will die soon if she isn’t found.  
    Will is already compromised, because the site belongs to the city’s most popular citizen: a wealthy, powerful, and politically connected athlete protected by the world’s most expensive lawyers—a man who’s already gotten away with rape, despite Will’s exhaustive efforts to put him away.  
    But the worst is yet to come. Evidence soon links Will’s troubled past to the case . . . and the consequences will tear through his life with the force of a tornado, wreaking havoc for Will and everyone around him, including his colleagues, family, friends—and even the suspects he pursues.  
    Relentlessly suspenseful and furiously paced, peopled with conflicted, fallible characters who leap from the page, The Kept Woman is a seamless blend of twisty police procedural and ingenious psychological thriller -- a searing, unforgettable novel of love, loss, and redemption.
