I kept waiting for the " electrifying psychological thriller" this book claimed to be. I'm still waiting to be "thrilled". Didn't happen.

It was a psychological mystery about a whiny wife married to a domineering husband, who led her life only to please him. That is until a little girl disappears and she discovers her husband is a child cyber porn addict, suspected of the kidnapping.

The book alternates with past and present, and is told in various voices during the investigation of the crime.

This book, especially the ending was dark and disturbing and I was left with a bad taste.
