Looking beyond her red hair, small build, and blue eyes, twenty-four-year-old Lindsey is a paramedic, a Christian, and a book collector. She owns just about every book written by Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Kathy Reichs, Karen Slaughter, and a host of others. But Stephen King is her favorite.
Lindsey’s best friend, Eric, works at a local used bookstore and is always on the lookout for special books to add to her collection. She’s thrilled when a hardcover copy of The Colorado Kid appears at the store; she wastes no time in making the purchase. While reading her new find, Lindsey discovers a black-and-white photo of a small boy, shirtless and sitting in a chair at a kitchen table; a ransom note is written on the back. At the same time, a frenzied man viciously attacks Eric at the store; he’s looking for that specific copy of The Colorado Kid that Lindsey just purchased.
Lindsay and Eric conclude that a little boy is in serious trouble, and the two friends become embroiled in a life-and-death struggle straight out of one of Lindsey’s beloved books.
