The Vanishing Point by Val McDermid

I don't usually check out books from the Mystery section, but I like to keep myself on my toes sometimes, so I checked this one out.

It starts out with a child being kidnapped at an airport security checkpoint as his guardian, Stephanie, watches on (she's in the security inspection box thing so she can't do anything except watch). As the guardian is interviewed, we find out the story behind the kid and why he's with her. The kid is the son of a celebrity who died from cancer, and leaves the kid to Stephanie, her closest friend who is also the ghost writer behind her biography.

This was a fast read, but it's really not that well-written. SKIP!
