Suspenseful. Great Book, finished in one day!


Local woman missing was great!. Was a Great read!


Stupid ending. The beginning was interesting but the ending was so so stupid and convoluted. So many characters making bizarre, illogical decisions. If you recommend this book I imagine you don’t read many mysteries or you’re 14 years old


Great read. Great book, was not a typical ending. A little slow at the start. Great read overall.


Couldn’t put it down. This had me hooked from the start and kept me guessing till the very end! Highly recommend!


Captivating. Keeps you on your seat until end of book. Unexpected twist after twist!


Must read. Great book


Fantastic. This book has its twist and turns. I didn’t want to put it down.


Read in 1 day. I’m happy I’m not well enough to go out as I had a very hard time tearing myself from this book.


Wonderful book. 10/10!!!!


Local Woman Missing. I had read and enjoyed some of her other books but this one was deviant…disgusting, sick.

❤️ google pics

Read!!!. Must read! Will have on the edge before the next twist and turn.


Great ending. Never would’ve guessed it…


Super good. Didn’t expect the ending. It all came together well at the end and definitely shocked me.


so slow. Had to force myself to get through this


Wow. Excellent riveting read! On the edge shocker novel


Wow just wow. Man did this book throw me for a loop! Halfway through the book I thought I had a pretty good idea of what happened but i couldn't have been more wrong. I started putting the pieces together just before they were announced and even then I couldn't believe the turn this book had taken.

Good plot twist. Overall it was a great read, just felt a little long in getting to the good stuff.


A little predictable. I liked the book however, I guessed who the culprit was pretty early on and that’s the reason I gave it 4 stars. Overall though, it was a good and easy read and did keep me engaged throughout the entire book.


Loved it. I love a good twist. It was well written and engaging!! Read itttt.


Couldn’t put it down. This is by far the best book I’ve read all year!!!!


Intriguing. Hard to put this down the twist and turns leave you in awe! Definitely worth the read!!!


Wow. Talk about plot twist…


Great until the end…. Great page turner until the totally inconceivably tidy ending. How can you wrap up such an exciting plot-twister book like that with a quick five-page explanation??


Twisty. Really great twists at the end that I never saw coming. Loved it


Great book. Started a little slow, but quickly drags you in.


Great Writing, Unsatisfying Red Herrings. Fantastic, enticing writing that keeps you turning the pages! You definitely lean into each perspective and find yourself looking for clues, only to be shocked by the big twist. That being said, a few perspectives felt unnecessary, with one being a pretty unsatisfying red herring that felt too easy for the author — it kept the reader confused but didn’t add anything to the plot. Overall, though, I recommend giving this one a read!

Sarah Steels

50/50. I have mixed feelings about this book. The writing is great, the story kept me engaged and wanting to read until the very end. That said, the ending was a little unbelievable. Actually, more than a little unbelievable. Maybe if some small clues were dropped along the way, I would have bought into it a little more. Nothing revealing but just enough to raise a little suspicion. Other than the ending, I enjoyed it.


What a ride. This book had me thinking a lot, starts off intense and I had more questions the more I read lol. I couldn’t put this down.


Amazing!. This book gets your attention right from the beginning making you want to know more! Did not see the ending!! Just wait for it! Soo good


Great read!!. This book hooks you from the very start!!! So good with a twist you never see coming. 10/10


Such a good book! Keeps you guessing.. So many twists and turns. I figured it out before getting there!

Michi Goo

Dark & Twisty. Quite the twister! Excited to read another book by this author.

The Eyes of March

Local Women Missing. It’s slow in places. Too much narrative. But, when the hook comes, you can’t stop reading.


Fav book. Amazing storyline, huge plot twists!


Ehhh. I really liked the book up until the end and the whole thing became unrealistic. The timeline was off. It was okay.


Best book ever. This is the book I wish I could read again for the first time, everything you didn’t know you needed!


Actually liked the ending…. Unlike many others, I actually liked the ending. Unfortunately, I didn’t really like the first few chapters. I kept going because I had faith it would turn around, and I’m glad I stayed!


yes.. yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes

Beepas girl

Local Woman missing. I thought it was really well written. A page turner!


Very fast-paced and plot twists my god!!. Mary Kubica has done herself good on this one! Though the beginning was dragging a bit, but the rest of the story was so good! I especially love Leo’s character throughout the book and how it’s unfair people treated him, including Josh. But through it all, an AWESOME book!!


Amazing read. This book keeps you reading and it’s a quick read.


So good!. Finished this in two days! Bought the audio book on a road trip then real book to read when I got home. I liked it but I have to say I knew it did it verrrry early on. Still good though!


From the very first page. I couldn’t stop reading. This one was steadily good from the very beginning, only until the very end did I even expect a plot twist and oh boy was there one! Such a good read.


Amazing Read. You never see the end coming.


A page turner!. Love this book! Lots of twists and turns and great writing!


Local Woman Missing. This is,by far, the worst book I have ever read. The beginning sucked me in, a child in captivity, but a hint she will be found. The book then turns into droning conversations of the people involved from a perspective of eleven years earlier, all their thoughts and boring, ridiculous, mindless chatter - of which could have been avoided if the characters were capable of being honest. I skimmed through pages searching for the parts concerning the captive child, Delilah. She does finally escape and is taken back to her family, only she is not that family’s missing child. The book goes on to tell the truth of what happened eleven years ago and it is so unbelievable as to border on the ridiculous. The missing girl is found in the neighbor’s attic unharmed and almost normal though she has been locked away. We are supposed to believe that Delilah could happily see her family through a peephole and watch as they went through life! The other missing thought to be Delilah is returned to her real family and nothing more is told about her. I feel silly for thinking the story would get better, more put together. Recent books I have enjoyed are “The Martian,” by Andy Weir, “ Lessons in Chemistry,” by Bonnie Garmus, “The Lincoln Highway,” by Amor Towles and my all time favorite, “To Kill a Mockingbird.” I mention these to because the are superbly written and are not a robbery of your time!

Hooked from the beginning. Very well put together. Had me on my toes.. Definitely recommend!!!


Guessed the killer in the beginning. I had my suspicions from the beginning and I turned out to be right. It was a good book but some parts were a little slow to get through. It seemed predictable


Unexpected ending. I love the way it starts because I was hooked from the very beginning. I literally finished the last 100 pages in one evening. I couldn’t put it down!

Great story!. I read a lot of books but this one is in my top five. It kept me guessing until the end. Wow!


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. The twist KILLED me


Local Woman Missing. Dumbest ending ever!!!


Loved every page!. Such an easy read!


Loved it!. Interesting from the very first chapter to the last. I’m sad to be finished, it’s a book I can read again.


Fantastic Read. I really enjoyed this book I’ve been glued to my screen reading every chance I get! I could easily rate it 10/10 I was really impressed by how the author kept my interest throughout the entire time.

Enthralling. It’s one of those books you can’t put down... from start to finish


Not my favorite. This book was hard to believe. There were so many things that just didn’t seem plausible and a couple of story lines not cleared up.


Great. All around great read


Literally SO good!. This book is absolutely thrilling! I was kept on the edge of my seat waiting for the next thread of the web to unravel. Wow, great job highly recommend!


Couldn’t put it down!. Kept me interested until the end. Great read.

Person with OCD

Amazing read!. Words cannot express how much I loved this book. All I will say is that it is worth the read and I would recommend to everyone and anyone!


Good. Interesting, creatively written. But the end was a little far fetched and hard to believe.


Wow!. I read this in one day. It’s a page turner for sure.


10/10. Hard to put down!


So good. Kept my attention and never got boring. Such a twist at the end. I never seen it coming. Loved this book so much. Finished it in a day, sad that I’m done with it now


wait, what????. An okay read with a surprising ending but too many side stories left unresolved…


Completely stunned! Great book!. Wow, where do I even begin! This book had me from chapter one. Constantly wanting to pick it up and read just a little bit more. Full of twists and turns. The ending had me completely shocked, my mouth literally dropped to the floor! Almost cried a few chapters, but so worth it! I highly recommend this book.


I couldn’t put this book down!. Great read!


Slow Beginning-Awesome Ending. For some reason, I couldn’t really get into the book in the beginning, but I’m glad I stuck with it. Taking many twists and turns, the book was truly a thriller.


amazing. one of the best books i have read in a long time- the writing is not cringe like many of the current books out, and is intensely clever as i could have not possibly guessed anything coming


WOW. This is a book that, for the first time in a long time, I’m blown away. Felt so real and terrifying!


Amazing Book!!!. I was hooked from the first page to the last. I could not put it down! If it weren’t for my everyday errands, I would’ve finished it in one day instead of 3!! This book is well written and very descriptive without having to use so many words to paint a picture. It was as if I was watching a movie whilst reading! 10/10 for sure!!!


What a twist!!. This book was a little hard to follow at first trying to keep up with all of the characters but once you got to know them it was easier to follow. The end had such a twist to it that made me want to keep reading!!


Intense. Keeps you reading all the way through, with an ending you’ll never see coming.


Must read.. Great. Start to finish.


Meh. Slow burn. Not the grand ending I was hoping for. Too many details that go forgotten. The ending felt lazy.


Good read. I became so invested in the characters that I cried at the end. Good read with a good ending.

Cari Devine-Blount

Just not sure what I think. I'm happy, so many people loved it. It was a little much for me. I felt it bounced around a little too much, and being a person with children and grandchildren; I had to fast forward. I'm glad others liked it.


Must read!. Quite an amazing book!!! Definitely worth reading!!


Slow. A few plot twists and a decent read. Good not great.


Fast and furious!. I read this nonstop, seriously suspenseful and full of unexpected crazy revelations. I love the fact the story is told by people, not from a police persons POV. It adds depth to each character and layers to the story. I seriously loved this book!!!


So good.. Couldn’t put it down!


WOW! Kept me on the edge of my seat!!. This is a real page-turner! Just when I thought I had it figured out, it took another turn. If you like mysteries, you'll be entertained with this book!


5 stars. Local missing woman had me guessing the entire time! Loved it!


Great Thriller!. This book had me hooked the whole time, super fun and fast read.


Local Woman Missing. This novel is a good story with many twists. Definitely worth reading, and characters are realistic. There are a few plot points that could have been fleshed out more fully and that’s why the 4 rating versus 5. Definitely recommend reading this book.


Pretty good. It’s kinda slow, but the ending was pretty good!


Totally unpredictable. This is a great “whodunnit” that keeps you interested to the very end.


Must read. Wow. A book that really keeps you on your toes but still answers all of your questions. One of the better books I’ve read. Easy read and definitely worth it!


This is a must read!. I loved that the story was told from so many different perspectives! There were so many twists and turns, I couldn’t put it down.


Five Stara. Absolutely loved it! A page turner that got better and better!


Unpredictable!. If you love psychological thrillers, you must read this book!! I thought I had it all figured out, but it kept on twisting and turning. Great book!!


FAV. This might be my new favorite book. There were so many different elements that kept me entertained from start to finished. Let’s make this a Netflix series already!!


So good!. So good! Finally a good book that doesn’t have all the inappropriate sexual stuff… I couldn’t put this one down!


Captivating!. From the first page to the last, the twists keep coming. So well written. So upset it’s over!

Ended too soon. Definitely a page turner and an ending I never expected but the end feels too rushed once the secrets are revealed. I would like to have learned more about these characters that I have grown so fond of.


Wild ride. It's a great book. So many twists and turns. The ending had me feeling a tad unresolved. There was so little meaning, the why eluded me. Overall a good read. Fast paced.


WHAT??. Really good book until the end. Absolutely ridiculous resolution to the mystery.


Great. From the very first page to the very last I was hooked. Amazing plot point and great twists that made me stop in my tracks and catch my breath! Definitely a must read


Local woman missing. I couldn’t put it down after I started so gooood 😍

Princess Fergie

Twisty. Twisty and intriguing. A little far fetched at times but I thoroughly enjoyed it

Sadistic sloth bear

Local woman missing. Totally silly. Many moronic plot twists that strain credulity.


Very good read. The story is engaging and surprises at the end are welcome, if not a bit obvious to an attentive reader.


Surprisingly well written. I say surprisingly because, in the beginning, the back and forth narrative feels like a gimmick used in other books with little success. It works remarkably well with this story. Great narrative and believable red herrings. A really solid book!


Mind blowing!. So well-written and totally a page turner. I started it and finished it in the span of a few hours - impossible to put down!
