On the day she was abducted, Annie O’Sullivan, a 32-year-old realtor, had three goals—sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she's about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all.Interwoven with the story of the year Annie spent as the captive of a psychopath in a remote mountain cabin, which unfolds through sessions with her psychiatrist, is a second narrative recounting events following her escape—her struggle to piece her shattered life back together and the ongoing police investigation into the identity of her captor.Still Missing is that rare debut find--a shocking, visceral, brutal and beautifully crafted debut novel.
Have you ever had that nightmare where you’re in a seemingly public place and then wham!
someone has a gun held to you and your forced into a van and taken away just like that?
Annie is a realtor struggling to reach the top and finally gain a moment of respect and acceptance from her mother. On a seemingly normal, slow day at an open house a man pulls up just as she is about to lock up to go meet her boyfriend for dinner. This man looks respectable and like a good potential buyer. Unfortunately, he’s not.
So many thanks to St Martin’s Press for the Advanced Reader’s Copy to review. It in no way influenced my opinion of this book. This is my honest review.
