4 1/2 - 5 star read. This is one of the best thrillers I've read this year. This is the first book I've read by Bauer but I now plan to read all her books. Jack is a 15 year old boy who has been looking after his two sisters since his Mom was murdered and his Dad left them. He's become a very successful burglar who not only steals valuable items but also takes out his rage by trashing the homes he steals from. He creeps into the home of a young pregnant woman named Catherine, while she is sleeping and her husband is away. He leaves a knife and a note beside the bed "I could have killed you." Catherine does not call the police, but the police eventually find both her and Jack and that's when the story gets really interesting. I read this book in 24 hours, I just couldn't put it down. A great read.
