What better way to spend frigid days than holed up binge-reading twisty thrillers. If you haven’t read this one, I highly recommend it. The slow build and layering of plot was done with just the right amount of suspense that it kept me hooked from the very first page. The story centers around NYPD detective Kat Donovan, who thinks she has rekindled with an ex-fiancee over a dating website. When he seemingly doesn’t recognize her, it twigs her suspicions later on as Kat discovers missing persons, all of whom had supposedly gone away with romantic interests off the same dating website. Kat is made to go on a leave of absence when her line of questioning has her accusing her superior in her father murder from years ago, Her line of questioning brings her face to face with a mob boss and her real ex-fiancee (who has changed his name).
This story ends in a fire-y showdown at a farm on the outskirts of Pennsylvania , where the con men responsible for over 40 kidnappings and murders are killed, many of them by a current hostage. Kat rekindles with her fiancee, though only to find heartbreaking news related to her own father’s past and her fiancee’s involvement in his murder.
If you love thrillers, crime, mystery, or just a plain old excellent story, pick up Harlan Coben’s Missing you – you will not be disappointed.
