Gripping. Will keep you on the edge of your seat. I refused to put it down.
Wow, just wow. Each chapter of the book is being told by a different person. The witness, the father, the friend, the private investigator, and the watcher. Each add their own perspective to the story and with each chapter you get a little more information about what happened to Anna. The book starts off with the witness on a train and seeing these two girls flirting with two men who recently got out of jail. The witness has this internal struggle about if she should try and find out who their parents are so that she can snitch on them or to just mind her business. She ends up staying quiet only to find out that one of the girls went missing. The book flashes forward to the 1 year anniversary of the abduction, and that is when the story really picks up.
Each of the narrators have a different secret that they are hiding about what really happened the night Anna disappeared. For example, the best friend lied about what happened that night with Anna (the victim) and the Father as lied about being home the night Anna went missing. Each chapter slowly reveals the true story of what happened that night when poor Anna went missing.
What was the most striking to me was the reveal of who the killer actually was! I won’t spoil it, but I was truly surprised! Normally I can figure these things out pretty easily but this book really stumped me. Just when you think you have a piece of the puzzle solved you get another clue pointing at a different direction. The most heart wrenching part is when you finally find out who the killer actually was. The book allows Anna one chapter where she tells what happened to her and how. My heart broke for her as I read her final thoughts. I really loved this book, and how it was done. I will definitely be reading more books by this author!!
