Never Wave Goodbye is not only a tale of suspense, but a study in the human condition, in how well one . Doug Magee has come up with a chilling premise for his first novel Never Wave Goodbye.

Never Wave Goodbye is not only a tale of suspense, but a study in the human condition, in how well one stands up to such a catastrophic event, seen from not only the parents' eyes but the of the children as well. My only complaints were very minor. and then the real van came. Four families put their nine and ten year olds on the van for a two week stay at Camp Arno.

An innocent rite of passage turns into a nightmare for four couples, exposing their secrets and risking the lives of their children.After passing the bittersweet parental milestone of putting her daughter, Sarah on the bus to sleep-away camp for the first time, Lena Trainor plans to spend the next two weeks fixing all the problems in her marriage. But when a second bus arrives to pick up Sarah for camp, no one seems to know anything about the first bus or its driver.Sarah and three other children have been kidnapped, and within hours of the crime the parents receive an email demanding $1,000,000.When the specifics of the delivery terms throw suspicion on the parents of two of the abducted children, some of the parents begin to turn on each other, exposing fault lines in already strained marriages and forging new alliances. While the kidnapped children are living their parents' worst nightmare, the police are trying to sort the lies from the truth in conflicting stories and alibis that seem to be constantly changing.Deftly weaving the emotional story that pits the parents of the missing campers against the police—and each other—with the fate of the kidnapped children hanging in the balance,Never WaveGoodbyewill keep readers holding their breath until the last page.

As the mother of two young children who went off to camp for the first time this summer, I was riveted by this book from page one. I was sure that this could happen to me, and that's the sign of an author who's really connecting with the reader. As the book went on, I loved the different perspectives of parents, kidnappers, and children.

But the end of the book was SUCH a disappointment. I don't want to give it away, but the book resolves through a clumsy device, a plot twist that could NEVER happen. Furthermore, the suspicions of many characters are never resolved - we never find out whether X or Y was involved in some way. Those who do turn out to be involved? It again seems clumsy, unrealistic. So while the events up to and until the kidnappers are revealed and the children's fate is unveiled are fascinating and well-written, even keeping you on the edge of your seat, the finale leaves a lot to be desired.

This book just didn't hold my interest . Suspenseful, I think not. Had to force myself to continue reading. Too predictable. Not at all what I had expected. I actually found it somewhat boring.

I really enjoyed this book! I read the book in under 24 hours and just couldn't put it down. The plot makes for a suspenseful beginning and the story has many twists and turns. The author does a great job of making each character believable and real. I plan to recommend this book to my book club and other reader friends.

I found this book to be good in that it was entertaining and hard to put down. It wasn't a great story. It seemed to fall short in a few areas with some unnecessary subplots and side-plots. It did keep me busy and gave me something to do for a couple of hot summer nights, so it was worth the time spent.

excellent book exciting ending

I found the story line very good, the plot development was progressive with ample background information. There were a couple of plot twists and subtle suspense. The author portrayed an excellent emotional perspective on the main focus; Lena.

In my opinion, the story lends itself to a screen play especially if done as a flashback from the points of view of the main characters: Lena, Sarah or Linda.
When you see the parents of a missing child making an appeal on television to the kidnappers, have you ever wondered what is really going on during the long hours and days while they wait for information about their missing child? Never Wave Goodbye gives us an idea of what those hours and days might be like.

The novel begins with an event which will strike terror in the hearts of anyone who has a child or loves a child. The author then manages to weave together a careful telling of the events which follow, relating them from the point of view of all four children and of their anguished parents.

As readers, we go back and forth between the children's "camp" experiences and the ways in which the parents, especially Sarah's parents, try to deal with this horror. The children's families are so different, but have been thrown together by necessity. They deal with the authorities and each other as best they can, with the constant horror of their missing children overlaying everything they think and do. The children also deal with unimaginable situations as best they can, and Sarah especially shows the way....

In some ways, it's hard to know exactly how to classify this book. It's absolutely full of suspense, but it also deals with family drama and with the human condition. I highly recommend it, and I also think it would be a wonderful movie.
