Intervention was indeed a "Up All Night" type of book! I wasn't up all night read it, but I did find it very fast paced, and very real. Emily was as real as friends have I had in the past, or people I knew at school. I am one of those people who never got into drugs. I never smoked weed, or anything else for that matter. However, I have been affected by those close to me or a friend who were on drugs, or just smoking even! Addictions are horrible horrible things that eat away at the souls of those who can't seem to break away from them. Mrs. Blackstock wrote this story of a family holding on for all they are worth, a Mother fighting against evil for her children with a beautiful passion and understanding that makes it well worth reading.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Barbara Covington has one more chance to save her daughter from a devastating addiction, by staging an intervention. But when eighteen-year-old Emily disappears on the way to drug treatment—and her interventionist is found dead at the airport—Barbara enters her darkest nightmare of all.
Barbara and her son set out to find Emily before Detective Kent Harlan arrests her for a crime he is sure she committed. Fearing for Emily’s life, Barbara maintains her daughter’s innocence. But does she really know her anymore? Meanwhile, Kent has questions of his own. His gut tells him that this is a case of an addict killing for drugs, but as he gets to know Barbara, he begins to hope he’s wrong about Emily.
The panic level rises as the mysteries intensify: Did Emily’s obsession with drugs lead her to commit murder—or is she another victim of a cold-blooded killer?
