Taken in Death by J.D. Robb

Taken in Death (In Death, #37.5) - J.D. Robb

Two kids, twins, are kidnapped from their home in the middle of the night, as their nanny lies slain. Lieutenant Eve Dallas is tasked with finding the killer and kidnapper, but it looks like they're both the kids' mother.

An intriguing and intense little story with just a little pinch of "paranormal" to spice things up in a futuristic, and slightly twisted retelling of Hansel and Gretel.
It was short, so everything was packed up tight, but the pacing was good, the story flowed nicely, and the imminent danger was palpable.
