Six Word Review: Amy is missing, media targets Nick.

Rating: 8/10 stars

I liked that this book was a psychological thriller something I haven’t read in a while, and it was unpredictable but I personally didn’t like the characters. Their flaws and secrets made them unpleasant so I wasn’t as emotionally invested.

I loved how the author wrote the book it was very detailed and the beginning was intricately written in a way that tied to the outcome of the story. I also liked the combination of the two perspectives which allowed the reader to sympathize with one side or the other.

My gut reaction to this plot line was shock, when you reach about the middle passage of the book the whole situation changes and your view scope suddenly opens up. It’s like reading a book under a microscope the whole time making little progress, then suddenly you pull it out and can make sense of the whole text. It’s very dark, it’s very clever, and I can understand why there’s so much hype attributed to this specific book.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves mysteries with a sinister twist.
