OH this book was sooo goooood! I liked this book right from the beginning. But the more I read the more I loved it. This would have made a great movie. Right now I am watching "Tell Me Your Secrets" on Amazon Prime and this book actually kind of reminds me of that. 

Great character development - even though I didn't really like either the wife, Caitlin, or the husband, Lance. They were both just, weird and not very nice towards each other. In fact Caitlin was kind of a Bi%@h to her husband at times. I know she had a sleeping pill addiction (for a good reason, or should I say excuse?) but still. Lance tried with her, he really did. But he was enabling her not helping and to me it came across as cold and unloving. Great characters for a Suspense story - right??? LOL And like I said... Great characters for a movie!

Talk about Suspense... lots of on-the-edge-of-your-seat moments here! There were really two stories going on at the same time. There was the family story - boy having nightmares, mom addicted to sleeping pills, boy disappears into thin air (or it seems), dad - well dad had real issues of his own! And then there was the story of detective Sage Dorian re-opening a cold murder case. And you wonder... What do the two have to do with each other?

The author does a fine job of wrapping the story up in the end. Parts of it I was expecting and parts were a surprise. I really enjoyed this one! I read it in almost one sitting! And I see it is #1 in a series!!! Yay!
