    1. Three months after wealthy biotechnology company CEO William Archer is lost at sea or kidnapped off his research yacht in the warm waters of the Hawaiian Islands in Rick Chesler’s inventive thriller "kiDNApped," Special Agent Tara Shores faces a very cold case. She also faces the uncertainties of three civilians intruding into an investigation. Was Dave Turner really looking for a wedding ring on the ocean floor when his dive boat was stolen and his employer was murdered? What can Archer’s s [...]

    2. KiDNApped is an action-packed thriller. Most thrillers make you guess the who-dun-it. Chesler approaches it differently. He allows you to know most of the secrets as the story unfolds because it's told from the perspective of all the characters. I liked that fresh perspective. Most intriguing is the scientific aspect of the story. While it's quite intricate, Chesler does not lose his reader. The storyline moves quickly and keeps you hooked throughout. Additionally, Chesler's depiction of Hawaii [...]

    3. Book Title: kiDNAppedAuthor: Rick CheslerPublisher: Chalet PublishersISBN: 9781936395132Reviewed by Michele Tater for The Couch Tater Review“If you can write DNA, you're no longer limited to 'what is' but to what you could make.” ~Drew EndySet in the beautifully scenic back drop of the Isles of Hawaii, a kidnapping has taken place so long ago that the man will soon be declared die and lost at sea. His daughter a brilliant successful professor of microbiology is not ready to give up on findin [...]

    4. Rick Chesler has done it again! His second book, KiDNApped, was every bit as enthralling as his first book, Wired Kingdom. Although science has never been my strongest subject, I was amazed at how easily I could follow exactly what was going on in this story line, including the DNA sequencing. It never occurred to me that man could do so much to alter DNA structures, allowing messages to be sent by a kidnapped scientist to his family. FBI Special Agent Tara Shores, now living and working in Hawa [...]

    5. Like Michael Crichton’s, Prey or Jurassic Park, Rick Chesler’s, KiDNApped shows just how far today’s technology has come and how truly frightening it can be. Though not a true techno thriller, the technology used in the story is central to its theme.KiDNApped is a detective thriller set in the familiar yet still exotic location of the Hawaiian Islands. The story has a good pace, with just the right balance between giving you background information without being boring or shooting straight [...]

    6. Rick Chesler's KiDNApped is an intelligent suspense thriller that easily competes with anything by Cussler or Crichton. Dr. William Archer, inventor of a breakthrough piece of biotechnology, has been kidnapped, and it's up to FBI Special Agent Tara Shores to find him. In this book, Tara is joined by Archer's son and daughter as she searches for Dr. Archer on an action-filled chase across the beautiful Hawaiian Islands. The catch is, the only clues are encoded in microscopic strands of DNA! As fa [...]

    7. What if Clive Cussler cloned himself and sent Juniour off to fend for himself. You would have Rick Chesler, heir apparent to the adventure/action throne. kiDNApped is a roller coaster, well written, great story, inventive and original. Tara Shores is a little more subdued here, but then again chasing a whale thru the Pacific (in Wired kingdom) would probably do that to a girl.There is a lack of "coincidence" here, something many action writers fall back on to get their characters out of a proble [...]

    8. I had high hopes for his book, as the first in the series - 'Wired Kingdom' was such a good story and I was not disappointed in the slightest. I was hooked from the first chapter, it has great characters, it's fun, interesting and makes you think. The end was good but shocking. The detail was just right. If you are looking for an intelligent, fun, well written thriller then this is the book for you.

    9. This book has adventure, science and a few good surprises. Like Chesler's last book,the story combines bio science with the best and worst the scientists have to offer.

    10. **I won this book from as a First Reads giveaway**Thank you to the author for sending me a free copy of this book. Review to follow upon completion.

    11. It's got science. It's got Hawaii. That's a great start! Keeps your interest the whole way through. Made me want to go back to Hawaii.

    12. Intense dramaThis is the most diverse mystery I have read in a long time. It kept me up into the wee hours of the next day. Most enjoyable!

    13. Another great Tara Shores adventure. Nicely paced plot with some interesting twists along the way. The only thing I wish it had was an epilogue. The ending feels a tad abrupt.

    14. This was an entertaining book. I enjoyed the science, I enjoyed the premise, and I liked the bad guys. There were just some stylistic choices that didn't flow for me. The romance felt a bit forced. I wasn't wild about Tara, mostly because the narrative focused so much on Dave, Lance and Kristen. Maybe all the character development for her went into another book?Anyway, my biggest beef was how the end just ended. There was no wrap up, no epilogue. Just "these people are dead, we won, bye bye." It [...]

    15. Kidnapped is an FBI thriller in the Tara Shores series written by Rick Chesler. Tara Shores has been assigned to work in Hawaii. Tara Shores is accidentally drawn into a mystery involving a missing scientist. The case is not an official FBI investigation, but Tara is tagging along with the son and daughter of the missing scientist to keep an eye on things. The missing scientist has cleverly sent a message, but it is a message only his daughter can decipher. Filled with science revolving around D [...]

    16. This Book had me guessing and did not let me down . Much of the Action takes place in the Hawaiian Islands and was nostalgic as author Chesler led me up jungle rivers and over volcanoes I have visited. His heroine, Tara, is quite simply a charming half Poirot, have Rocky FBI agent. Cool and composed she is not above causally ripping your head off and using it to play Bocci Ball. The science in this book regarding DNA messaging is fascinating. And after some fact checking VERY REAL!Love a good so [...]

    17. I just cannot force myself past the incredible editing flaws, research gaps and outright amateur mistakes in the execution of this story. It had fantastic characters, well-developed, and the concept of the plot was a great idea but this really proves the old addage: execution is everything. Or rather, the lack of execution can destroy anything, even the best of ideas. I'm convinced that, with a professional editor, Mr. Chesler could have executed a better novel. I hope the editors at his new pub [...]

    18. my favoriteI have read 3 of Tara Shores thrillers. This one is my favorite. It has a lot of the Hawaiian Islands locals. It is a fast paced mystery.I am looking forward to more of Rick Chesler's books.

    19. This book was pretty good I would have liked more details of how the characters were feeing. I enjoyed the tension and the plot.

    20. I read the Kindle edition.The premise of sending messages via DNA is interesting. IMHO, the FBI agent is a rather pathetic character.Overall, an interesting read!
