Summary:

In the masterful follow-up to the New York Times bestseller All the Missing Girls—“think: Luckiest Girl Alive, The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl” (TheSkimm)—a journalist sets out to find a missing friend, a friend who may never have existed at all.

Confronted by a restraining order and the threat of a lawsuit, failed journalist Leah Stevens needs to get out of Boston when she runs into an old friend, Emmy Grey, who has just left a troubled relationship. Emmy proposes they move to rural Pennsylvania, where Leah can get a teaching position and both women can start again. But their new start is threatened when a woman with an eerie resemblance to Leah is assaulted by the lake, and Emmy disappears days later.

Determined to find Emmy, Leah cooperates with Kyle Donovan, a handsome young police officer on the case. As they investigate her friend’s life for clues, Leah begins to wonder: did she ever really know Emmy at all? With no friends, family, or a digital footprint, the police begin to suspect that there is no Emmy Grey. Soon Leah’s credibility is at stake, and she is forced to revisit her past: the article that ruined her career. To save herself, Leah must uncover the truth about Emmy Grey—and along the way, confront her old demons, find out who she can really trust, and clear her own name.

Everyone in this rural Pennsylvanian town has something to hide—including Leah herself. How do you uncover the truth when you are busy hiding your own?

    I found this book to be very annoying. Basically the main character made terrible dumb decisions and got herself in a bad area because she never thought to ask any questions about her roommate. Just dragged on for a long time. No real suspense to thrills just confusing mental banter to herself.

    This book is one of the best I've read (heard) in a while. I usually spy the twists far in advance and watch them unfold, but not this time. I had more than one real surprise with this book. I also love this narrator.

    I really enjoyed the story line of this book. It held my interest until the very end. Overall, great read! I also enjoyed the narration of the audio book as well.

  • Timothy C

    One of those books you don't want to put down. The ending was a little lackluster based on the depth of the rest of the book but still not bad. The narrator is one of my favorites. Well worth the listen.

    Good read once it got started! Didn't really like the narration.

    One of my first audiobooks. I really enjoyed it- fun to listen to while working and while walking my dog. Onto the novel- I enjoyed reading All the Missing Girls and wanted to give this one a try. I can't say the plot was necessarily anything new, but this still kept me entertained and I couldn't stop listening. Definitely recommend for anyone who enjoys a good thriller. Narration was excellent.
