MOM BEING fine with her young, near-teenaged daughter playing fantasy games in the woods for hours on end with an unidentified (but apparently "known to her mother") adult male friend? Nope. NO mother is that idiotic. Then, when her daughter is apparently abducted, it takes Mom HOURS AND HOURS for it to even OCCUR to her that the unidentified adult male friend MAY have had SOMETHING to do with her daughter's disappearence? COME ON!
But, aside from that one GLARING lapse in judgement and common sense (of what is essentially an easily written-around, if particularly ill-advised and implausible plot-moving device - hello, editor?), this is a fine first novel and portents a major literary find.
An absorbing thriller that alternates between the main character's (Alicia's) point-of-view and that of a deranged man determined to have Alicia and her daughter all to himself so he can send them to "paradise" forever. A cast of possible suspects is weaved throughout the story so the reader keeps asking, "Is it him? No, maybe it's him..." This kept me guessing until the moment the man's identity is revealed. A real page-turner and an enjoyable, suspenseful read.
I would not recommend this book to anyone
Boring and took me over a month to read because it didn't keep me wanting more. I only finished it because I paid for it
