Engaging throughout but the ending left me feeling …
When Michael Frazier’s ex-wife, Erica, unexpectedly shows up on his doorstep, she drops a bombshell that threatens to rip his family apart. Her ten-year-old daughter is missing and Erica claims Michael is the father. Unsure whether this is the truth but unwilling to leave the girl’s fate to chance, Michael has no choice but to leave with Erica.
What am I feeling? Let down, disappointed and incomplete. The book moved at a thrilling speed the whole time with these great little cliffhangers that had me reading just one more chapter. But the end was just blah! There wasn’t a “WOW!” moment and the answer to the biggest question asked during the telling of the story? I don’t feel readers are given that answer. I assume from the epilogue what the answer is, but I’m one of those readers that needs it in writing. Don’t make me guess, just give it to me straight.
Told over the course of one night from alternating viewpoints, the book is engaging and I think fans of Bell and mystery/thriller/suspense novels will enjoy this one. I read it in a day and would probably read it again.
