Book Review & Giveaway: Cache a Predator by M. Weidenbenner

Cache a Predator is a geocaching thriller about a father’s love, justice, and the unhinged game of hide-the-cache.

Officer Brett Reed will do anything to gain custody of his five-year-old daughter, Quinn. But when a judge grants Brett’s drug-addicted ex-wife custody and slaps him with a protective order for losing his temper, he fears for Quinn’s safety. Who will protect her now?

When Quinn is found abandoned on the streets, she’s placed in a temporary foster home until Child Protective Services can complete an assessment. It should only take a few days.

But a lot can happen in a few days.

Especially when there’s a deranged psychopath on the loose, someone who’s attacking pedophiles, someone who wants to protect children like Quinn, and someone who’s planting body parts in geocaching sites.

This book is hidden in cache sites all over the US and Canada with the goal for it to travel to all 50 states. It’s mission is to spread awareness of child abuse and how it harms victims, families, and communities.



Cache a Predator isn’t just a mystery. It deals with the issues of addiction as well as emotional and sexual abuse. It tears at your heart.

This book is written from different points of view as well as in the third person at times. It sounds confusing but it was done well and wasn’t confusing at all. In fact, seeing things from “the Whacker’s” point of view helped to explain why he was attacking sexual predators and I felt sorry for him. If his point of view hadn’t been shared, I would have just considered him a monster rather than a disturbed human being.

My heart ached for Brett. He was in an impossible situation because of his ex-wife’s lies and things just got worse. He was a good man and a great father but he did seem to have a bit of an anger problem. He never hit a person, and I got the impression that he never would, but it seemed like he was always hitting things: the table, the steering wheel, etc.

I liked Sarah, Quinn’s counselor. She tried to help whenever she could. She was a strong woman who had gone through a lot in her childhood and was doing what she could to get over it.

I have heard of geocaching and how it works but I’ve never participated. I thought it was a creative way to have the missing body parts to be found. 

I definitely recommend Cache a Predator for anyone who likes crime novels and/or drama.

    It was a very gripping story indeed and Brett and Quinn’s characters still tug at my heart even now after finishing the book.

      Mine too. I don’t know how parents deal with losing their children in custody battles and that was just the beginning of what they went through!
