Not as good as the first two in the series. It shows the struggles of the mother looking for answers of her missing daughter and the revenge she wants to seek against the person who took her. ( )

Not believable. ( )

It's like therapy group, only better. ("Better".)

And while the difficult 'literary' stuff can have its merits, this is clean (not confused) and easy to read.

The therapy-group-aspect of it does take patience, (and I didn't actually *like* the book), but I tried to rate it for the quality of the writing.


Then again, I didn't like it, so how good could it have been, really. Without trying to be too biased, it wasn't wonderful. It just wasn't obviously flawed.


What I mean is the main character wasn't really sympathetic to me-- this victim who thinks that the rules of morality and behavior don't really apply to her because of her excessive pain, etc., etc. But what the author thought of her character is unclear to me, so whatever.

Too many words; too much repetitive sentiments and thoughts. Not enough action. The mother was pathetic and not a sympathetic character. ( )

This novel chilled me with the description of the killer. I wonder how many damaged souls walk around in the perimeter of normal individuals. After reading this breed of novel, I want to limit my contact with the outside world. The story is well written with glimpses in the mind of the killer and the victims. Who is to be trusted? Hoag does an excellent job with the characters and the setting. I felt the battle of Lauren Lawton a little too much. I wanted to tell Lauren to chill and pay more attention to her present life than the past life. ( )
