Similar in format to Gone Girl by Jillian Flynn but not nearly as good, neither in the story nor in the writing.

I thought the characters were somewhat one dimensional

I liked that this book was not predictable but I found the writing a bit uneven. I haven't read Gone Girl so I can't compare the writing. The structure of going back and forth from before the "incident" to afterwards worked quite well.

Outstanding book. I found it hard to put this book down. Amazing and suspenseful. I love how it jumps from past to present, keeps you guessing from the very beginning . I highly recommend this book, you will not be disappointed!

A book hard to put down... Just finished this last night and it took a while to wrap my head around the ending. Actually re-read the last 5 or so pages (on my Kindle) to make sure what I read was what I read!

Excellent debut novel for Mary Kubica ! I loved how it bounced between present and past so that you knew what happened but not how it happened. Very suspenseful and I couldn't put it down!
