My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book hooked me from the opening chapter all the way until the end.
Yes, it was that good.
Every time that I thought that I had this book sorted out, like oh, THIS is the truth and THESE are the reasons why this is all happening – WRONG! The plot twisted again and I am surprised.
This book is a MUST READ!
Ethan Sutton wakes up in his luxurious, immaculate Victorian home in Franklin, Tennesee, to find a note on the kitchen counter from his wife, Sutton. The note says that she is a coward and not to look for her.
Ethan is worried, angry, hurt, and baffled. Where is she? Did she leave him? Or – is she suicidal? Should he call the police, or just keep looking on his own? It’s always the husband that is the suspect when a wife disappears – is he ready for that spotlight?
This is the story of Ethan and Sutton, told in two timelines: THEN – Ethan and Sutton in happier times, and the events leading up to the present; and NOW– After Sutton goes missing. We experience the story through Ethan’s perspective in the first half of the book, and Sutton’s perspective in the second half of the book. An unnamed narrator’s perspective is sprinkled throughout, along with detective Holly Graham’s.
We follow Ethan and Sutton from their initial, magnetic first meeting in a bar, to the happy, loving, intoxicating first years of marriage and building their life together, to the unraveling of the marriage and all of the horrible things that they do to each other.
