Here is a synopsis of "The Critic." by Jemiscoe
Wren Lilton is a Pulitzer and Man Booker award-winning author, but she's also a literary critic. Wren finds herself in the worst of places with no memory on how she got there. As she attempts to catalog her day, she remembers that she set to go home after a long day at the "New Englander," locked up her office, and made it out to the parking structure, but that's where her memories get a little hazy. She does, however, recognize her kidnapper as alcoholic, once best-seller, washed-up, cop drama genre author, Brett Pirie. A couple of months ago, Wren wrote a scathing review of his new book, Tables Turned. The book was contrived, his characters flat, and his plot completely predictable. Wren's review held nothing back, resulting in Brett becoming more unhinged. He wants Wren to rewrite her review and he is not backing down. He is also not afraid to use a little bit of torture to make her decision easier. She doesn't know his end game, but figures it doesn't look good for her. But Wren's got a secret, and as she places her hands on her still flat stomach she knows wholeheartedly that escape is the only option. Except, how does one escape when your kidnapper forces you to dig your own grave with a gun at your back?
