His Kidnapper's Shoes by Maggie James

Into the Wild

Read His Kidnapper's Shoes Online Free - Daniel Bateman is one angry man. He’s just discovered a devastating truth; the woman who calls herself his mother is really his kidnapper. Snatched from his birth family when he was four years old, Daniel’s always been tormented with vague memories from his former life. When he is confronted with a second shattering revelation, his life falls apart; booze and casual sex help numb the pain.

Daniel knows one thing for sure. He’ll never be able to forgive his kidnapper. Never. Because of her, he’s been denied his dream of becoming an artist. More importantly, he’d have grown up with a mother he could love instead of one he can barely tolerate. And the shadow of his controlling stepfather wouldn’t have darkened his life.

Furious, his life in pieces, Daniel needs the answer to just one question. Why did Laura Bateman kidnap him?

He’s not sure he’ll ever find out. The woman now under arrest for his kidnap twenty-two years ago isn't talking. Laura Bateman doesn't believe a crime has been committed; to her, stealing Daniel seemed her only option at the time. Until she receives Daniel’s forgiveness, something he’s sworn she’ll never get, Laura’s staying silent as to what really happened all those years ago.

There’s a saying that you have to walk a mile in someone’s shoes before judging them. Will Daniel ever be ready to step into Laura Bateman’s shoes?

A tense novel of psychological suspense, His Kidnapper's Shoes weaves one man’s quest for his identity with one woman's need to heal her troubled past.

A fantastic psychological suspense novel from British author Maggie James. I read this over a few hours and was gripped from start to finish, I love a book like that. Totally addictive and intriguing. I was hooked from the synopsis, then the plot, the characters, the twists. The whole caboodle! I...

When I was a kid and I got in a snit with my mother (which was often) I would fantasise about her not being my real mother; that there had been a mix up in the hospital and I had come home with the wrong parents; that I had been adopted and my real mother (incredibly wealthy of course) was search...

If I could give this more than 5 stars, I'd gladly do so...What an incredible read! If you are a mystery/thriller junkie like I am, you have probably read a couple of books with the theme that this one focuses on-a child kidnapping. That wasn't a spoiler, as the author clearly wants you to know wh...

His Kidnapper’s Shoes is the first book I’ve read by Maggie James. This was a little gem of a book. It’s shortish, so it’s an easy read (or listen in my case!). But don’t let that fool you, there’s a lot of story packed into those 200-some-odd pages. 26-year-old Daniel has never truly bonded with...

This book just kept on giving. We guess by the title and we know by the blurb and even get more of an idea what the book is about by reading reviews. But let me say, as long as no ones given any spoilers, the story is just not straight forward. The depths the author goes to the heart and soul of...

Wow, what a thought provoking and emotional read. His Kidnapper’s Shoes is told in alternating chapters by Daniel, who has just recently found out that Laura is not his mother, and Laura, whose chapters are in the past and leading up to and after kidnapping Daniel. I think for anyone it would come...

Ok let's get to it. What an incredible read. This one really took me by surprise. The story of Laura and Daniel Bateman, mother and son on the surface, but as we find out early on, Daniel is not her real son but a child she kidnapped when he was four years old. The story is told back and forth fr...

All of my reviews can be found on www.novelgossip.com This was an emotional and heartbreaking read! At the age of twenty six, Daniel finds out that his mother isn’t actually his biological mother. He’s always felt like something was off and wondered why he felt a lack of a connection between his m...

His Kidnapper’s Shoes is told from two alternating points of view: The kidnapper (Laura) and the victim (Daniel). I always enjoy books written this way. My Kidnapper’s Shoes begins with Laura already in jail. We go on a journey with both Laura and Daniel seeing what both of their lives are like. W...
