A missing child is every parent's nightmare. What comes next is even worse in this riveting thriller from the bestselling author of Bring Her Home and Somebody I Used to Know.
Tom and Abby Stuart had everything: a perfect marriage, successful careers, and a beautiful twelve-year-old daughter, Caitlin. Then one day she vanished without a trace. For a while they grasped at every false hope and followed every empty lead, but the tragedy ended up changing their lives, overwhelming them with guilt and dread, and shattering their marriage.
Four years later, Caitlin is found alive—dirty and disheveled, yet preternaturally calm. She won’t discuss where she was or what happened. And when the police arrest a suspect connected to the disappearance, Caitlin refuses to testify, leaving the Stuarts with a choice: Let the man who may be responsible for destroying their lives walk away, or take matters into their own hands. And when Tom decides to try to uncover the truth for himself, he finds that nothing that has happened yet can prepare him for what he is about to discover.

Terrible Character Writing
I give it two stars just because I managed to finish it, but nothing about this book makes sense. Absolutely nothing about the way the characters talk to each other, the things they do....none of it rings true. They’re one-dimensional. And if you think that certain characters or events will come into play later - they won’t! The book is just filled with flat dialogue and things that don’t matter.
....But not in a good,entertaining way. I've never written this type of review, but.....in fairness, I finished the book, actually rushing through to the end. That being said, when I finished I realized that I actively disliked EVERY SINGLE Character in this book. No spoiler, but I couldn't even summon up sympathy for the missing girl - or her parents. Even the cops were jerks.
And there was something creepy about the whole thing, beginning to end and left a bad taste in my mouth.
I won't be reading the other books from this author.
I really enjoyed this book.
