Still Missing Author:Chevy Stevens On the day she was abducted, Annie O'Sullivan, a thirty-two year old Realtor, had three goals -- sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever- patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor of the day pulls up in a van as she's about to leave, Annie thinks it ... more »just might be her lucky day after all.
Interwoven with the story of the year Annie spent captive of a sadistic psychopath in a remote mountain cabin, which unfolds through sessions with her psychiatrist, is a second narrative recounting events following her escape -- her struggle to piece her shattered spirit back together and the ongoing police investigation into the identity of her captor.
I was really surprised by how much this book truly dragged me in. Let's just say when I got it absolutely no housework got done that day or the next till I finished it. That rarely happens to me.
Annie is the focus here and the story is about her in the present talking to her psychiatrist about being held for a year in captivity. The abuse, physical, mental and verbal she withstood among many other tragedies she endured while being a prisoner. I really appreciated the story being told the way it was. I knew Annie had survived so it wasn't a tragedy right? Wrong. There are so many creepy twists and turns here that I actually felt very emotional for Annie and everything she had to process. I read books all the time but my one guilty pleasure has always been pyschological thrillers because those get under your skin and for me add some meaning to life whether its good or bad. Read this book but its not for the faint of heart its sad, thrilling, beautiful and a bitch all stacked between 2 covers. I am going on to read Chevy Stevens' other books because I am now very interested in what she has to say.
