What would you risk for love? That’s the question at the heart of Debra Jo Immergut’s compelling new novel, THE CAPTIVES. Frank is a psychologist at a women’s prison. When Miranda, an inmate, walks into his office for an initial consultation Frank immediately recognizes her as the girl that he was obsessed with in high school fifteen years earlier. Meanwhile Miranda is doing time for following her lover down an increasingly dangerous, crime-laden path that ultimately resulted in embezzlement and murder. Frank would do anything for Miranda and wants to prove it. Miranda cannot reciprocate Frank’s feelings, yet she cannot resist the opportunity for the freedom and new life that only he can offer. Immergut’s story is one of passionate desire confronting immorality, of careers and bright futures succumbing to lust. It is psychological, taut and masterfully written. A real page-turner.
