A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


“What a box of tricks! This full-throttle thriller, dark and driving, rivals Agatha Christie for sheer ingenuity and James Patterson for flat-out speed. Swift, sharp, and relentless.”  — A. J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

A brilliant, edgy thriller about four strangers, a blizzard, a kidnapped child, and a determined young woman desperate to unmask and outwit a vicious psychopath.

A kidnapped little girl locked in a stranger’s van. No help for miles. What would you do?

On her way to Utah to see her dying mother, college student Darby Thorne gets caught in a fierce blizzard in the mountains of Colorado. With the roads impassable, she’s forced to wait out the storm at a remote highway rest stop. Inside are some vending machines, a coffee maker, and four complete strangers.

Desperate to find a signal to call home, Darby goes back out into the storm . . . and makes a horrifying discovery. In the back of the van parked next to her car, a little girl is locked in an animal crate.

Who is the child? Why has she been taken? And how can Darby save her?

There is no cell phone reception, no telephone, and no way out. One of her fellow travelers is a kidnapper. But which one?

Trapped in an increasingly dangerous situation, with a child’s life and her own on the line, Darby must find a way to break the girl out of the van and escape.

But who can she trust?

With exquisitely controlled pacing, Taylor Adams diabolically ratchets up the tension with every page. Full of terrifying twists and hairpin turns, No Exit will have you on the edge of your seat and leave you breathless.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 05, 2018 – College student Darby Thorne, the heroine of this nail-biting thriller from Adams (Our Last Night), braves a Colorado blizzard to try to reach her mother, who's in the late stages of pancreatic cancer. But the weather is too much for Darby's aged Honda Civic, and she's forced to spend the night at a rest stop visitor's center. The volunteer-run facility is nearly empty, except for four other stranded travelers a quirky, but seemingly harmless group of strangers. That is, until Darby goes to the parking lot, in search of a cell signal, and finds nine-year old Jamie "Jay" Nissen mouth duct taped, in a dog crate, locked inside a van. With no cell service and no prospect of the roads being cleared until dawn at the earliest, Darby has to figure out a way to save Jay. The only problem, she doesn't know which traveler is the kidnapper or who can be trusted. The action drives to a climatic and emotionally charged ending. Only a predictable twist and moments when Jay's maturity feels beyond her years mar this otherwise satisfying page-turner.

Customer Reviews

Nearly Perfect!

By the end there were tears in my eyes. Tight, exact, writing—not a word wasted. And, surprising depth and character development. Every time it appeared the characters reached their limits the author pushed them further!
The only criticism is the writing felt a bit rushed near the end. Nonetheless excellent book. Can’t wait to see the movie!!!

Best mystery I’ve read in a while!

I usually don’t leave reviews but this book deserves it! On the edge of my seat the entire time and it’s unpredictable! I follow all the NYT best sellers and popular psychological thrillers and this one should be your next read!

Finally, a great read!

I've been so sick of all the new books where you already know what's going to happen, because they're just knock offs of better books.

This book kept me on the edge of my seat. So many twists that I wasn't expecting. Finally a book I couldn't put down
