After reading most, if not all, of Mary Kubica's novels I am discovering that, for me, I am no longer surprised by any of the twists and turns and can guess what is going to happen at the end most times.  But that doesn't mean that I don't enjoy the novel, I liked this one a lot.  Its more about the journey of the main character in this story, Sadie, than any revealations that may come later on in the novel.

What I loved about this story....
For obvious reasons, I won't go into too much detail so as to avoid spoilers but I enjoyed following Sadie as she discovers the truth about what has been happening.  This is something that I had not come across much in novels and an expected twist that I throroughly enjoyed watch being played out.

What I didn't like about this story...
Honestly, the middle part of this story, for me, was a bit slow and it did lose my interest a couple of times but I am so glad that I stuck with it because it was completely worth it for that ending.

In summary...
A slow burn thriller with a very interesting twist at the end that was predicable for me but worth the read, for sure.
