This was just an OK story but it left you wondering why the missing kids weren’t mentioned more than 4 or 5 times until another kid went missing at 61%, when Michele had another dream about it. Really, Connor didn’t seem concerned about them. He never, ever went out to check a lead, never talked to his partner Cruz about it, and certainly never believed it when Michele told him about her dreams. I think this should have been a book about something other than missing kids. It just seemed there wasn’t enough concern about them to make Connor or Cruz overly likable. Connor and Michele had pages and pages of sex 2 or 3 times, and Cruz fixed her window because someone had been in her house, but their attention to the kids was nearly zero.
Finally, Connor and Michele were together when she had a dream and she told him of a girl missing and had him call the precinct and they told him no one had reported anyone missing, until later that morning when they were having coffee and Connor got the call. She had to beat him over that head with her gift before he would believe her. And when Cruz told Connor they needed to get Michele into the office to see if she remembered anything else Connor went off on him. It was like he’d rather protect Michele from any discomfort or bad memories than to save those 6 missing kids? That didn’t make a bit of sense. At 61% I wasn’t sure I wanted to finish this book it was getting so ridiculous.
I’ve read 4 of Ms. Brant’s books in the last 5 days, not including this one, and this is definitely my least favorite. It was like the missing kids took second place to everything else that went on in the book. I think this story needs to be rewritten, make it a murder mystery or stalker or something other than that of 6 missing kids that I felt were virtually forgotten about most of the time.
As I mentioned earlier that was sex in this book, 2 or 3 explicit scenes. And there was a little bit of swearing, nothing too serious.
As to the narration: Again Ms. Marlo did a very good job. A little bit of emotions and the men sounded like men. Amazingly, every man had his own voice. That’s saying a lot for a female narrator. Usually every man has the same voice, just like every woman has the same voice when a man narrates. So, kudos to Ms. Marlo.
