It never really leaves her. So, you can just imagine how she handles it when the new disappearances start happening 20 years later.
Well! This is one book I will not soon forget. I could not listen to it fast enough to suit me. This story is non stop. It twists around and then twists back. I thought I had it figured out, but I changed my mind, then I changed it back. I love a thriller which keeps you guessing!
The narrator, Karissa Vacker, nailed all the drama and all the intrigue. I will be on the look out for more from her. She excelled!
