So begin the whispers swirling of the curse that seems to come with the car. New father George Hall doesn't by into the local superstition and purchases the car at Abbi's estate auction, but then his daughter Rose is kidnapped and the Packard stolen. Enter Helen Meeker the FBI first female agent. Meeker is determined to find Rose no matter what the cost.
I have to say that that I was really impressed by this book. It took a few chapter for me to settle into the novel, but once I did I couldn't wait to put it down. I had to see what was on the next page. There was many plot twists and turns, and I did pick up a few of the clues that the author left for us, but for me that just added to having to find out how all of the pieces fit together. If you want something different, don't let the cover put you off. This was a really great book.

I read the reviews both pros and cons, I made my own decision that I thought he would enjoy it. He never reads in bed and just last evening he took the book to bed and said, "I am going to finish this tonight, though I don't really want it to end!"
chasChicago, IlAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5a lot of twists and turns with the packardJanuary 8, 2014chasChicago, IlAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Packards are not made any more but this story gave me a ride. Can an auto harbor and cause evil ? I was kept in suspense on that question . What I can say without spoiling the story is that you will not be disappointed as you read this book . My father had a Packard in the 1950's and I remember riding in it , so comfortable a ride , so my memory kicked in as this Packard traveled . Although you do not have to have any Packard memories to enjoy this story .
IreneUnited States4 Stars Out Of 5Flows from one scene to the nextFebruary 18, 2013IreneUnited StatesQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4What a suspense filled story! There is so much going on in the story that you will not want to put it down till you read the ending! I gave this book 4/5 stars. I liked the plot and thought it was very well written. It flowed from one scene to the next flawlessly. There were some issues with some of the characters. I just could not relate to all of them. Usually you can get a feel for characters and empathize with them but a few of the characters in this story did nothing for me. I think the plot could have done without a few of the extra characters and that would have made this a five star book!
I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
HersheyreaderHershey, PA1 Stars Out Of 5One of the worst!October 28, 2012HersheyreaderHershey, PAQuality: 1Value: 1I can't remember the last time I didn't finish a book....but this book almost stopped that streak! It truly was painful for me to keep reading it. First of all, I have no idea why this is in the Christian market. There are only a few spiritual references, and to boot, there is a ton of coverage on the "cursed" car. I also thought the storyline was just too exaggerated. I mean truly...how many things could go wrong for one small town couple. This was the first story I've ever read by Ace Collins, but trust me, it will also be my last.
