However, the biggest flaw was that the author introduces way too many characters and individual plot lines. Every chapter or so, a new character appears and you need to remember details about them to follow during the rest of the book. I have a good memory, but when you get so many names and details, I just couldn't follow it all. That became really frustrating. Even 3/4 of the way through, new characters were popping up all over the place.
I did read the entire book because the author does keep you wondering what's going to happen next, but I was glad when it was over and I didn't need to strain my brain anymore to remember all the characters and their stories.
Note: I received a free review copy of the ebook.
As other reviewers say, Henn juggles a lot of characters. To me, showing how the events involved and affected a wide range of people made the plot a bit more real-life, which was important when the premise had me wondering if Henn had gone off the paranormal deep end.
Happily, he brought it all home at the end.
If you like "Disappear," grab "The Delta Chain" too. I enjoyed that even more.
The description of this book had me very interested. It was moved to the top of my list. I liked the characters and was very interested to read it all the way through to find out what all happened in the book. It took longer than I would like and I kept getting thrown off and had to go back and reread parts. This is mostly due to having so many characters in the book. Also, the fact that you jump around from character to character way too frequently.
I did read the whole book cause I wanted to know how it ended. I am glad I read it but I don't know that I would reread it.
From that point in modern day, we go back eighteen years when Brian Parkes, a young account, disappears after going out for cigarettes. His wife Jennifer is pregnant, and ends up raising their daughter alone, while building up her fashion label.
We are brought back to current day with Jennifer, who is asked to come down to the police station to identify a hit and run victim who, just happens to be her husband, wearing the same clothes he left the house in eighteen years ago, and looking exactly the same age. So begins one of the most engrossing suspense novels I’ve read in a while.
The serial killer had also quit killing eighteen years ago, and had now started up again. A shadowy group of thugs had stopped him nearly two decades ago, but have now let him go for some reason. Wrapped in all of the mystery, is a handsome police detective who’s been taken off the scene when he makes a connection between more ‘ageless’ bodies showing up who’d been strangled.
The only flaw in the novel is that I found all of the different characters a little hard to follow. Less characters would have tightened the suspense for me as a reader; because there were so many, I found the plot slowing down as these new characters were described and I mentally integrated them into the story.
A fascinating plot along with likeable characters makes Disappear a fun read.
