“Helpless” by Daniel Palmer is a great book. It is a thriller, a mystery, a twisting and turning plot that will hold your attention from beginning to end. This is the story of a single father and a teenage girl’s worst nightmares. “Helpless” is about Jill Hawkins, her recently murdered mother, her high school friends and Tom Hawkins, the divorced father she has heard only bad things about from Mom and old Navy enemies. The world as they know it suddenly becomes turned upside down.

“Helpless” is a psychological thriller. Tom, a former Navy SEAL, is the main suspect of his ex-wife’s murder. He is forced to deal with lies from his past and present. Tom enlists the help of his friends and lawyers to prove his innocence while trying to slowly build a bond of trust between himself and Jill that is tested over and over again. “Helpless” delves into the world of child porn on the internet, cut-throat businessmen, murder, kidnapping and love. There is constant intrigue as the readers are kept guessing as to who the good guys and bad guys really are.

Daniel Palmer has written a winner with “Helpless”. This book has all the makings to become a long standing number one bestseller. It is written tastefully and emotionally. “Helpless” has strong characters that we find ourselves cheering on or not liking at all. It is a book that will keep you up way beyond your bedtime because it is just too good to put down. This is a must read for all.
