Still Missing~Book Review


Still Missing by Chevy Stevens

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.

This is such a good book! I couldn’t put it down and ended up reading it non stop, well, you know between other things, for 2 days. I loved the way the book is told in parts to the therapist. That is such a clever way for the story to unfold. This book is kind of like a train wreck, in that you can’t stop reading it because it is so intense!

I got to chat today with Chevy Stevens the author and she said that the book will be made into a movie! Chevy is such a creative author and has another book that will be out in July, Never Knowing.
