My review:

This was a real psychological suspense.  And it really kept you reading. 

Claire Fletcher has been missing for years, she disappeared one day on the way to school.  Connor Parks has had a rough day and has been assigned desk duty pending resolution of a case he was working on.  While unwinding at a local bar he meets a woman who the next morning disappears only leaving her name and an address.  When he goes to the address he find out she has been missing for over 10 years.  This starts a brand new investigation for him, he is determined to find out who was this woman he met and if she was really this missing person.

The rest of the story is told between Claire's perspective at the hands not only of her kidnapper but what has happened to her in these years she has been missing.  The rest is told from Connor's point of view in his search for Claire.  This is very well done and you do not get lost even when the chapters switch to from one to the other. 

We find out Claire is a very strong character.  She is beaten down but still tries to find ways out.  She is a fighter and you know that if she wasnt this story would not be possible.  There are rough things that happen to her and I am thankful the author does not go into detail, but does let you know these things do happen in situations like this.

I dont want to say what happens as it does all tie into the story and could potentially spoil parts, I will just say that it is a satisfying conclusion and even once it reaches a part where you can accept the ending.  The author does keep the story going and progressing to give a real conclusion.  This was a well written suspense and I am looking forward to more from this author.
