I love it when a book grips you right from the beginning and this was extremely the case with this one.
Audra Kinney was fleeing the country with her two kids, Sean and Louise, when she was pulled over by the town’s Sheriff who suspected her and asked to search her car. Having found a bag of marijuana, he arrests her, ask a fellow officer to come to pick up the kids, and throws her in jail. When Audra asks him where took her children, he replies.
And all fun begins from there. The book started out really well, I was so attentive and clinging to every word trying to make sense as we were given tids and bits about Audra, who was a recovering alcoholic and a Sheriff who been serving the town for years.
Where are the children? Were there really any children? Did her abusing husband arrange all this?
The suspense was just unbearable. It was incredibly tense and I was flipping through the pages (actually tapping the heck out of my iPad) to find out what happened and to find an end to this nightmare that had begun.
As enjoyable as it was, halfway through, some of the mystery fell and we got the answers that we were looking for. I really wished it would have kept us on the edge longer or till at least near the end of the book as I wasn’t reading the rest like that first half.
Overall, I would truly recommend this book to all thrillers fans, especially those who love the domestic and/or psychological kind.
I received this book from Bloggingforbooks and Netgalley in an exchange for an honest review.
