In McFadyen's intense fourth book to feature scarred FBI agent Smoky Barrett (after The Darker Side), a psychopath known as Dali abducts wives for men who wish to be rid of them, imprisons them for years in darkness and isolation ( I'm just storing meat ) until life insurance proceeds are paid to the husbands then charges half the insurance for.

He doesn’t kill for thrills, for sex, or even for power.It’s far more twisted than that….Cody McFadyen, acclaimed author of The Darker Side, The Face of Death, and Shadow Man, delivers this shocking new thriller that brings to light a psychopath unlike any we’ve ever seen—a killer who thrives in absolute darkness and doesn’t derive pleasure from the kill. And only one woman has the ability to see him coming…even if it’s already too late to stop her own murder.For FBI Special Agent Smoky Barrett, the wedding of one of their own was cause for celebration. Until a woman staggered down the aisle, incoherent, emaciated, head shaved, and wearing only a white nightgown. No one knows who she is or where she’s come from—or why she’s chosen to appear in a church filled with law enforcement agents. Then a fingerprint check determines that the woman has been missing for nearly eight years—that once she was someone’s wife, someone’s mother…and a cop. Imprisoning her in a dark cell, depriving her of any contact with the outside world, her enigmatic captor was a man she didn’t know and who seldom spoke, who punished her only when she failed to follow his most basic instructions designed to keep her alive.Cold, businesslike, seemingly indifferent to his victims, he’s a predator with an M.O. as terrifyingly inscrutable as any Smoky has ever encountered. As she fits together the pieces of what remains of his victim’s fractured life, a chilling picture emerges of a killer every bit as calculating, masterful, and professional as Smoky and the team she leads—a professional psychopath who doesn’t take murder personally and never makes a mistake. There’s a reason he let one of his victims go free. And by the time Smoky pierces the darkness of his twisted mind, it may cost her more than she can bear to lose to escape. For a trap snapped closed the moment she took this case too much to heart.

I loved the first book in this series with its wounded heroine, Smoky, who makes a comeback against the odds. I purchased the rest of the series in Kindle format immediately. In the second book, I had trouble finishing because of the emotional violence, especially against children. I had to stop for awhile and read something lighter. Some months later, I randomly opened ABANDONED and started reading, forgetting I hadn't finished the second book and hadn't started the third. I'm normally very linear in my reading habits, so I almost stopped with this 4th book until I could get caught up. But the story line of ABANDONED grabbed me in the first few pages and I kept going. Read the whole book in one day. The author's writing is smooth and I was able to keep up even with the gaps caused by reading the books out of order. The plotting is well done and for the most part is believable. More than a few times I thought the level of violence was unnecessary. I think "Smoky" is a wonderfully complex character and I'm very engaged with her. And that's both a good thing and a bad thing. Towards the end of this book, I could predict where the author was taking her and I didn't want to go along for the painful ride. I gritted my teeth and finished the book but I don't feel good about the ending. In this book for me, there wasn't enough "light" to compensate for the "dark." Others who have read the book will know exactly what I mean by that. I'm giving this book 4 stars because my personal limits on how much violence I can stand to read about being inflicted on the heroine of a book will vary from other readers. Not sure if I would read the next book in the series unless the author moves beyond tormenting the heroine and lets Smoky do her job without becoming a victim.

I know it sounds crazy, but if you read even one Smoky Barrett book, you'd agree completely. These books are so smart, so well-written, the characters so good EXCEPT...EVERY single time one of the main characters, Callie, speaks, expect the descriptive "honey-love". It gets the reader so crazy, and is so distracting, that you start reading "Callie" and saying to yourself "here comes honey-love". And the explanation as to why she has to say this so often (that is, that it's semi-saracastic) doesn't really gel with her constant use of it (she often uses it when she's not being sarcastic.)
One more thing that keeps these books from flowing effortlessly, is that if you've read even one book, you notice that the author "cuts and pastes" from one book to the next, whole paragraphs about characters in the book (for example, that Bonnie was tied to her murdered mother for 3 days before she was rescued.) We are told this in every single book, and in EXACTLY THE SAME LONG DESCRIPTION each time.
So these are my only criticisms, but they are big blocks to the story nonetheless. I will keep reading these, as they really are so well-written and smart, but I really hope that these two major distractions cease.
  • Sorryyy
This is he first book of Cody McFadyen that I have read and I must say he has a new fan..... However, I thought I should read his previous stories to get a complete "prelude" of his characters ... but found that as this book progressed I got enough of a picture so that it seemed like I already knew enough about them.... What happened to them in other books was explained enough to probably take away the anticipation of going thru the plot "again"..... still I hope there are more books to follow this one. His villain is as evil as can be, and the personalities of the involved investigative team I thought was thorough. I did find a bit too much "explanation " in the chapter near the end about the psychology and mind twist of the perpetrator.... I thought that was done sufficiently just as the plot unfolded. Even so, I did enjoy reading this book and will be looking for others written with - hopefully - the same intensity as this one.

Cody McFadyen may possibly become my new hero. Like Wynton Marsalis mastered the trumpet, McFadyen mastered the thriller genre.

Clear, vigilant, and haunting, with a side dish of tingling suspense is how I like my novels to read when I write them. McFadyen kicks it up a notch in "Abandoned", he serves it hot and spicy too. His writing style (especially his ability to write women) inspires me to be a better author. The minute I started reading his work, it all together depressed me and inspired me at the same time. I can only hope to develop into the thriller writer he has become.

Well done Cody, you must make Liza Dawson very happy indeed. I would love to meet up some day so I can pick your brain!

Best Regards,

MJ Mancini, author of the "Revelation Trilogy"

There were several times when my attention was riveted to the story. And there were long pauses of explanation that put me to sleep. Reminded me of reading "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand. She was a great story teller, but she had to put all that editorial crap about capitalism in there.

McFadyen's explanations did not contribute to the plot. Skip over them. You won't miss much, and you'll enjoy the book with greater delight.
