Stolen Things by R.H. Herron | Review

Stolen Things | R.H. Herron | Dutton Books | Pub: August 20, 2019 | Pages: 368

I listened to the audiobook version of this book, and I quite enjoyed it!

The story is about Laurie, who works as a 911 dispatcher. One day, Laurie answered the 911 line and it’s Jojo, her daughter! She’s drugged, disoriented and doesn’t know where she is.

Laurie will stop at nothing to find her daughter! This is a fast-paced story that will leave you at the edge of your seat! There are some gruesome scenes and many twists and turns along the way!

I was immediately drawn to this story, and it left me guessing! I was 100% invested and wanted to know what would happen next!

I would have given it a five-star rating if the ending hadn't been rushed and there had been a bit more closure, but I still recommend this book to anyone who likes a good thriller!

Thank you to PENGUIN GROUP Dutton for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


“Mama? Help me.”

Laurie Ahmadi has worked as a 911 police dispatcher in her quiet Northern California town for nearly two decades. She considers the department her family; her husband, Omid, is its first Arab American chief, and their teenaged daughter, Jojo, has grown up with the force. So when Laurie catches a 911 call and, to her horror, it’s Jojo, the whole department springs into action.

Jojo, drugged, disoriented, and in pain, doesn’t remember how she ended up at the home of Kevin Leeds, a pro football player famous for his on-the-field activism and his work with the CapB—“Citizens Against Police Brutality”—movement. She doesn’t know what happened to Kevin’s friend and trainer, whose beaten corpse is also discovered in the house. And she has no idea where her best friend Harper, who was with her earlier in the evening, could be.

But when Jojo begins to dive into Harper’s social media to look for clues to her whereabouts, Jojo uncovers a shocking secret that turns everything she knew about Harper—and the police department—on its head. With everything they thought they could rely on in question, Laurie and Jojo begin to realize that they can’t trust anyone to find Harper except themselves . . . and time is running out.
