Review of Gone Without a Trace by Mary Torjussen
Thank you to Berkley and Netgalley for a copy of the ARC in exchange for a fair review.
Whew where to start... my mind is blown!!!
Hannah is a successful business woman who returns home one night with some exciting news. When she arrives home to find her boyfriend of four years Matt is gone. Everything he owned is gone, all of her old stuff is put back in its original place. Where has he gone? What happened?
She is so humiliated that the only person she tells at first is her best friend Katie. As time goes on Hannah continues to fall apart. She finds that his number is disconnected and even his mother has moved. She finds out she is pregnant and gets in trouble at work. But weird things are going on in her house. Stuff has been moved, new flowers put in, a cd in her car...
Is Matt messing with her? Is she losing her mind?
Gah I have like a ton of things I want to say about this book, but spoilers for real I can't comment on what I really want to because it will spoil the whole damn book. I will make this vague reference the ending made me feel slightly uncomfortable and it really took a minute to wrap my head around everything.
That was how it is supposed to be I think, I think that was the author attempt and it was masterful, because I really felt a certain way towards Matt the whole book, and I will say my opinion of Katie was not improved by any circumstances. The clues are slowly revealed and you just don't put them together until the end when you look back and suddenly it is so clear.
If you are looking for thriller that deals with a subject I don't I have ever read about in a fiction book then look no further!
