Rescuing Olivia

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


In RESCUING OLIVIA, a Florida man sets out on a search against time to find and save the woman he loves when she mysteriously disappears after a suspicious motorcycle accident.

When Olivia Mayfield first arrived in Florida, hoping to escape her rich, powerful father and her controlling ex-boyfriend, the attraction between her and Anders Erickson was immediate and mutual.

To Anders, a biker who spent his life drifting and working at jobs that belied his intelligence, Olivia was a beautiful, down-to-earth woman who saw beyond his blue-collar life and appreciated his simple ways. For Olivia, the carefree Anders represented an oasis of kindness and tranquility.

But after the two are involved in a horrific motorcycle accident, Anders finds himself plunged into a terrible nightmare. The severely injured Olivia disappears from the hospital, and her father will stop at nothing to prevent Anders from discovering the truth. When he embarks on a quest to find answers, Anders uncovers not only Olivia’s traumatic past, but evidence that her very life could be in danger.

In a desperate search against time that takes him all the way from his Florida home to the quaint New England town of Olivia’s youth to the wild, haunting African savannah of her birth, Anders is tested to his limits. As he struggles to save the woman he loves, can he reconcile the demons of his own past and, in doing so, save himself as well?

At the intersection of suspense and family drama, RESCUING OLIVIA mines rocky yet compelling emotional terrain as it tells the story of two people who are forced to face – but ultimately refuse to be defined by – their painful past.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 14, 2009 – Compton s intense, entertaining second novel involves a horrifying coverup and a powerful new drug. A hit-and-run motorcycle accident in a Florida forest leaves Olivia Mayfield in a coma in intensive care and her live-in boyfriend, 29-year-old Anders Erickson, feeling guilty. I was going to ask her to marry me, Anders confesses to Olivia s sympathetic nurse. Was the theft of the couple s helmets from their parked bikes shortly before the crash just a coincidence? Had a car really been following them, as Olivia suspected? Olivia s father, Lawrence, a pharmaceutical magnate who blames Anders for the accident, informs Anders at one point that his daughter has died. When Lawrence turns out to have a hidden agenda, Anders travels to Clifton, Conn., where Olivia grew up, and later to Kenya in search of answers. While sometimes stretching the bounds of credibility, Compton (Tell No Lies) pulls off a super-satisfying resolution to this romantic thriller.
