James Swain's newest book Midnight Rambler focuses on abducted children, a subject he knows something about. Swain's mother was abducted as a child, and while she survived the ordeal, it left a lasting mark on her - and her writer son. When Swain met an abduction specialist recently, he decided to delve into the dark world of abductors and sexual predators.

Midnight Rambler's lead character, Jack Carpenter, is far from a model citizen. An ex-cop who lost his badge after being a little too enegetic when busting a serial killer known as the Midnight Rambler (something about police brutality or some such nonsense), Carpenter has few friends and lots of enemies. When new evidence surfaces in the Rambler's case that might set the killer free, Carpenter pulls out all the stops to prove that the Rambler belongs behind bars. The deeper Carpenter digs, the more he finds that the Rambler is just one of piece of a horrific and shocking puzzle. - Olivia Flores Alvarez
