    " I did and didn't like it at the same time. It was a page turner- I kept wondering what would happen next. However, I found Nancy to be pretty pathetic and I predicted who was behind the children's disappearance fairly early. The child molestation angle made me feel creepy and uncomfortable. Not sure I would recommend it, but I am not bummed that I took the time to read it. "
