Riveting, enthralling, captivating, fast moving thriller
I liked Joe Lynch, he was a nice guy, if a little meek and mild, but he is a good dad and and a nice guy.
The whole story was crazy and kept me up late and had me thinking about the book during the day, anxious to get back to it and find out what happened.
Joe thinks his wife is at work, but he and his young son spot her car in traffic, then see her turn into a hotel parking lot. They follow and Joe gets into an altercation with their family friend, Ben just as his son has an asthma attack. When Joe returns to see if Ben is ok, Ben is gone.
Ben’s wife reports Ben missing. But Ben starts sending Joe shocking messages that he is going to take everything from Joe. But, since Ben is missing, Joe becomes the suspect behind Ben’s disappearance because of the altercation at the hotel.
My heart went out to Ben and I was rooting for him the whole time, but could not predict what would happen in this book. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes psychological thrillers.
I would like to thank Netgalley and St. Martin’s Press for my review copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
