Very good read. One minute you think you know where this book is going..the next you can't believe what you are reading. I recently found this author and so far I have thoroughly enjoyed all her books.
A fast-paced read. Switching back and forth between the five main characters (and group) kept the storyline easy to follow and surprising still. Straight from the headlines, add a little supposition and speculation, and the story becomes it's own.
I don't consider this a page-turner and in fact didn't even finish it, it just jumped around from person to person and after over 100 pages I didn't feel like it was getting anywhere except for a Senator having an affair with his intern, etc. etc. -- sound familiar? Didn't want to read anymore so will pass it along
Really good! The girl, one miniute she's there...the next she is gone
The Senator, one minute he's a hero...the next he's the prime suspect
The Wife, one minute she's a supportive wife...the next she's married to a stranger
The Mother one minute shes a proud mother. the she's desperate to remain one
One minute you think you know where Intern is going...
The next you can't believe what you're reading
From Publishers Weekly
Although Hill's debut thriller owes much to the Gary Condit political scandal, she creates more than enough suspense to keep readers intrigued. April Wayne, 23, disappears without a trace while interning for California State Sen. Eric Barry. When the media learn that the senator was the last person to be seen with April and that the two were supposedly having an affair, he becomes their prime suspect. April's parents, Gloria and Jack Wayne, are shocked by the news of their daughter's disappearance and affair, which drives a wedge between them. Gloria becomes consumed with finding April, while Jack descends into a paralyzing depression. Senator Barry worries more about his next election than about April. Suzanne Barry, who has always been loyal to her husband, is overcome with doubt about their life together when she learns that he has been unfaithful. "He gives me one of his dazzlers across the table. I want to believe in the face, the eyes, the voice, but I can't." Suzanne's naivete is implausible, but Hill skillfully draws subtle parallels between Suzanne and Gloria as they both deal with their devastating anxieties and scolding consciences. The resolution may be a bit lurid for some tastes, but that won't make it any easier to put this page-turner down.
