I want to call it a swiss cheese plot--full of holes. Certain things were never resolved. Without adding spoilers, I'll just say there were a couple of plot points that were never addressed. And as a listener, I’m left asking 'why would she do that--it makes no sense.'
The main character, who supposedly spent a lot of time raising his children, needed a lesson in just that, raising children. His weakness and willingness to let his teen daughter treat him with disrespectful was terribly frustrating.
Seriously, your wife is missing, your children are asking, 'where's mom?' and you wait almost a week to report her missing? You call her friends but won't say you can't find her? As my husband says, "Son, that dog won't hunt." I was left thinking, what is wrong with this man?
I have to admit I have never read a novel by a male author who spent so much time describing what people were wearing, down to excruciating details. I was always taught with regard to writing--don't tell the reader, show them. There was way too much time spent on description of benign things that didn't matter and it got in the way of the story.
I think it was a good idea but got lost along the way. Mr. Bagby did a great job with the narration.
