Rescued is a fictional novel written by E. Alan Fleischauer. This is a murder mystery that is mainly set in Colorado and New York. This story revolves around John Thurgood Thomas, mostly known as JT. In this book, we get to see his adventures and a tad bit of romance.

The story begins with JT taking shelter in a cave in Colorado. He happens to see four women named Annabelle, Jean, Emily, and Dawn who are kept as hostages by a few men. Then, JT being a hero, rescues all four women and takes them to a safe place. Later, one of the women escapes and he realises that she is a criminal and is responsible for the sufferings of the rest. He then decides to hunt her down and punish her. But this task is not easy. The woman is extremely smart and cunning. So, will JT be able to find her? Will he provide justice to the other women? Well, you will have to read this book yourself to find out.

Rescued is an intriguing novel that all mystery-lovers must read. It is neither extraordinary nor overdramatic and yet, it is a page-turner. The story has many different characters that are portrayed well without creating any confusion for the readers. The author has written this book beautifully in a simple language which makes it easy for everyone to read. This book has about 200 pages divided into 30 chapters. Every chapter is to-the-point without any unnecessary exaggeration which I think is great.

There are many things that I liked in this book. This is a fast-paced, action-packed story that kept me hooked until the end. I feel the story was especially strong in the area of portraying the strength of the female characters. Be it the villain or the heroine, they have a quite daring and strong personality. Though this is a fictional story, I truly admire the character of JT. He is kind, chivalrous, sensible, and a daredevil. The way he rescues the women and helps them till the end is praiseworthy. The best part is that the story has a lot of twists and turns that did not let me put this book down. One of my favourite scenes is when JT goes in search of the villain. His attitude and adventure throughout his journey are outstanding. I especially appreciate the author for keeping this story exciting yet uncomplicated.

There is nothing major that I disliked about this book. My only complaint is that a few characters disappeared in the middle of the story which is a little disappointing to me. I would have enjoyed the story more if the author had given a little extra description of the characters and the surroundings. Nevertheless, I had a great time reading this novel.

This book contains mild profanity and romantic scenes that are not explicit. The copy that I received seems to be professionally edited as I found only a single error that did not distract me. With that being said, I rate Rescued 4 out of 4 stars. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I have no strong reason to rate this any lower.

I highly recommend this book to the people who love reading murder mysteries, thrillers, and suspense stories. Since this book contains crime and death scenes, I do not think this is suitable for sensitive people and children.

Agreed, Jean disappeared quite abruptly. But I hope there are some explanations in the other JT books :) Thanks for a great review!

The first mystery I wonder about is what JT was doing in the cave. What's the story behind that? Your amazing review has me intrigued about JT and his quest for justice. This looks interesting. Thanks!

I'm not into mysteries, but I am into books with strong heroes like JT. It being a 'can't put down' type of book makes it interesting as well. I'll have to give this one some thought, but thanks for the insightful review!

This story about JT rescuing the ladies feels so intricate and I would love to know who the criminal lady was and how he would capture her and bring her to justice. Nice review
