Four able narrators keep the pace and the plot on track through most of this implausible thriller, but the denouement will disappoint listeners still hoping for a satisfying resolution. Though the story begins with a girl being held captive by a monstrous couple, the focus is on her family and neighbors. It's soon revealed that two women in the neighborhood are gone--one missing and the other dead. Are they connected to each other--and to the girl? Sadly, the author has chosen to tell the story from four different characters' perspectives while toggling between the girl's disappearance 11 years earlier and the present day. Much of the time, it's difficult to figure out what's going on and why we should care. L.W.S. 2022 Audies Winner © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2022]
