"Still Missing" by Chevy Stevens
Author's website: http://www.chevystevens.com
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 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.
The truth doesn’t always set you free.
This book grips you right away, you are thrown into the story from the start, learning of Annie's mind set in the aftermath of being kidnapped. We learn exactly what happens as each week when she shares a nugget of information with her shrink. With each fact exposed you understand where Annie is coming from and are amazed that she is doing as well as she is and it makes you wonder if you would be able to survive with as much grace as she did.
As the story goes on we see that the police are still working just who was behind her kidnapping. The police manage to ferret out the plan behind it and it will blow you away.
One thing that I really liked about this book was that in addition to seeing the aftermath in Annie's life, we get to see how this affected those close to her. While the kidnapping had the most devastation to Annie it also happened to her friends and family.
