This debut thriller by Mary Kubica has been proclaimed as the next Gone Girl. While I don’t think it was quite that caliber, it did make for a good read on my weekend getaway. I recommend the audiobook, which is available for download from the library overdrive site.
Mia is a young teacher who is kidnapped by her supposed one-night-stand, Colin. Eve, her mother, is beside herself with worry while grappling with her daughter's disappearance. Gabe is the investigator assigned to Mia's case. Mia’s story is told from the points of view of each of these characters.
While the action can be suspenseful at times, other parts are a bit slow. Keep plowing through. When you find out what’s really going on in the end, you’ll find it worth the wait.
