Four years after Tom and Abby’s twelve-year-old daughter vanishes, she is found alive—but strangely calm. When the teen refuses to testify against the man connected to her disappearance, Tom decides to investigate the traumatizing case on his own. And nothing can prepare him for what he is about to discover.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheri | 2/13/2014

    " Quick read. It caught my attention and had me turning pages like crazy trying to find out if there was some odd twist to the story. However, in the end I wasn't quite as satisfied as I would have liked. All that hype for not much to say during the conclusion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anissa | 2/6/2014

    " unresolved ending in my eyes. I wanted more closure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patt Boitnott | 1/30/2014

    " I loved this book. I couldn't put the book down until the end. It's a must read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kerrin | 1/25/2014

    " I really enjoyed the first 2/3 of this book, based on that it would have gotten 4+ stars. Unfortunately last part ruined it for me. I do not understand why so many things went unsaid (ie: "he lied to you", "we never stopped looking for you"), why a father would put himself and his daughter in such dangerously stupid situations, the ever swinging hate/love relationship between the brothers. Just ruined it for me. However based on the beginning/middle of the book I will give this author another shot. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Matt | 1/25/2014

    " Ew. Compelling idea, but no thanks. Thought the writing was a little bland and the main character supremely unlikable. Maybe I can't relate because I have no children. Who knows? I didn't enjoy the book at all though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Evalyn | 1/20/2014

    " This was very gripping and had surprising twists in it but it was not cheery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy | 1/17/2014

    " This story is about a 12 year old girl who goes missing. The way the family behaves, especially her father Tom, felt unsettling to me. A quick suspensful read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mckenzie Weiby | 1/8/2014

    " Sloppy, awkward read. Characters actions made me was to scream with annoyance, and all attempts to add a who dunit feel to the book felt contrived and cheap. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 12/10/2013

    " I pretty much couldn't stand any of the characters and it was completely unrealistic as far as how things unraveled. The fathers obsession got really annoying as well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacey | 12/5/2013

    " Started out good, decent potential. Never quite developed enough though - it was kind of flat. Disappointing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole Zane | 12/3/2013

    " I really liked this book. I would recommend it as a good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carrie | 11/21/2013

    " So far so good. The book is slower paced but that pace almost makes it more gripping. So far (I am 3/4 of the way through) it has kept me interested and I am eager to know how everything fits together to have ended up with the Kaitlyn's dissappearance.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krystle | 11/15/2013

    " It was a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 11/13/2013

    " I really liked this suspenseful book. You really didn't know what to expect from the characters. I'd have liked to see a bit more character development on some of the main people, but all in all, a great book that you can't put down!!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tk0339 | 9/23/2013

    " story about a missing girl and what happens when she's found 4 years later. very slow. not as suspenseful as i thought it'd be "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maggie M | 9/4/2013

    " Enjoyed this book. As a mother it was interesting to read what a father might feel and think when something like this happens. I do wish it had went into more detail about what the girl went through and how she ended up being and feeling the way that she did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Myndi Keyton | 9/1/2013

    " Read this book straight through without stopping. It's an agonizing look at what happens to a family when an abducted child comes home. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny (adultishbooks) | 1/19/2013

    " The suspense in this book was phenomenal. There was just enough items that came up that satisfied a little bit and then bring up more questions. I really loved this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 7/15/2012

    " I loved this book! I could not put it down. I am sometimes turned off by books like this because they are too predictable, but this one was not predictable at all. A must-read! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carol Scheherazade | 5/25/2012

    " I couldn't put it down,but in a way that reminded me of watching something incredibly gross and horrifying. While the writing was suspenseful the story was awful. Really really awful. Don't read it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 1/1/2012

    " Sadly, this book did not live up to my expectations. The characters are rather one-dimensional and the plot twists are both predictable and absurd. Not the best psychological thriller I've ever read, by any means. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 11/2/2011

    " page-turner is an understatement; scary read for a scary season; can't wait to see what Bell would give us next. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiffany Arellano | 11/1/2011

    " A twist and turn on every page, this book held my every available minute captive. I picked this book up last night after finishing my other novel and just finished this a few minutes ago!! David Bell has earned himself a loyal reader. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 10/22/2011

    " When Tom Stuart's daughter reappears after four years, the first thing everyone wants to know is what happened. But the truth is shocking.

    A dark, dark read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jane | 10/22/2011

    " So I wanted a quick read page-turner and that's what I got. Skimming helped the pages turn faster than they would have if I'd bothered to read closely. The characters are kind of wooden, and at times hard to believe. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paulette | 10/12/2011

    " Just okay. Too many superfluous characters. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Matt | 8/15/2011

    " Ew. Compelling idea, but no thanks. Thought the writing was a little bland and the main character supremely unlikable. Maybe I can't relate because I have no children. Who knows? I didn't enjoy the book at all though. "
