Seven Days is a superb read. It has an eerie atmosphere and along with its sense of urgency I could not put the book down. I devoured the book in one sitting. The suspense factor was huge. Each chapter ended with a chilling dilemma for Maggie and also for her family. The story alternates between Maggie in the basement and her family's search for her. If there is anything that might feel unbelievable it is that Maggie is still alive and is able to handle living for twelve years in a basement with no light. However, we know from the news media that this has happened in real life so it is believable.
I highly recommend this book for mystery fans. 5 out of 5 stars.
