A self-described research junkie, she has parlayed her passion in police procedure, cutting edge forensics, and twisted plots right into a streak of 11 perfectselling suspense novels, together with her most latest free up, The Neighbor. learn her guest review of still missing:

Heading to a seashore? Boy do i've the book for you!

now and again a brand new writer comes alongside that absolutely knocks one out of the park. As a reader, I’m always pleased to discover a really perfect new voice. As a writer, of course I’m insanely jealous and suffer a negative case of why-didentificationn’t-I-think-of-that? given that debut writer Chevy Stevens is young, stunning and gifted, I’ve been gnashing my teeth for months!

still missing represents mental suspense at its highest. Realtor Annie O’Sullivan is abducted from an open house and held captive for a 12 months in a far off cabin via a sadistic survivalist who considentificationers her to be his wife as well as most popular breeding inventory. His goal is to get her pregnant and are living creepily-ever-after because the last man and girl on earth. Her goal is to get ameans from him.

Now, Annie wins this war because the book opens along with her talking to a therapist. So you may also ask, where is the suspense? i will be able to’t provide you with a easy answer to that, rather than to mention every page crackles with it.

still missing creates one of the crucial haunting narratives I’ve read in 12 monthss. at the one hand, survivor Annie is hard, offended, and brittle. The very worst has happened to her, and he or she get awayd thru her personal ingenuity and frankly, savagery. however, survivor Annie is jumpy, terrified, and sleep-deprived. these types of months later, she nonetheless can’t pee “off time table.” In one of the most more transferring scenes of the novel, she dpersonals a gallon of iced tea so as to drive herself to urinate via her personal free will. she can’t do it.

in addition to her compelling heroine, Stevens has created one of the most perfect psychopaths for the reason that Hannibal Lecter—and that’s not one thing I say lightly. Annie refers to her captor mushy as The Freak. similar to Hannibal, The Freak considentificationers himself to be a civilized human being. intelligent, excellent taking a look and imaginitive, he’s an excellent “husband.” He has provided a captivating cabin. He supplies recent food—every now and then so recent that city slicker Annie must bleed it out first, but main points, main points. of course he has expectancies of his wife. She must be well groomed, properly garbed, and a hundred percent submissive. All failures to comply are met with The Freak’s concept of appropriate punishment. The Freak may be thoughtful and mushy. want to stop drowsing for a couple of nights? learn the scene where The Freak first shaves Annie. And he manner it in the nicest kind of means.

Stevens skillfully juxtaposes the back story of Annie’s captivity with the entrance story of a lady desperately trying to reclaim her antique life. as with all nice suspense novels, the surprises abound. Annie thought she’d survived the worst with The Freak. however has she?

As the taut cat and mouse game unfantiques, you will cheer for Annie. you'll hate The Freak. And you will be absolutely mesmerized via the last line of this novel. Then, possibly, you will go back to page one, and get started it all over once more.

So provide you withrself a summer time vacation. take a look at debut writer Chevy Stevens, and soon you will be still missing.
