I preferred this book to Asylum Harbor, the second Rachel Scott book. This story was much more evenly paced rather than the frenetic action in the other book, particularly towards the climax which stretched credibility. In this book the chapters are headed with a timeline - date and time, so that the reader is in no doubt as to the time scale the action is taking place in. This would have helped a lot with Asylum Harbor.
Some of the tension is taken out of this tale as it is quite clear whodunit in the first half of the book. However, the interest then switches to how, and possibly if, Sam is going to be rescued. At the end there are one or two loose ends left for the author to pick up in the future. This is very short - about 180 pages - and most readers will get through it very quickly, particularly as the chapters are very short which keeps you reading. Overall an interesting story, and fairly light reading.

The thing that I like most about this book is that the author was able to weave a fantastic mystery with relatively clean language and little to no sex scenes...that to me is talent.
While I read many different genres, mysteries have been a favorite of mine since high school when I discovered Agatha Christie, and thrillers a fave since Mary Higgins Clark came on the scene. This book holds up with the best of them, IMO. It gets 4.5 stars from me, and I look forward to reading more from this debut author. 4.5 stars from me.
This is a captivating story that will have you dying to turn the pages, and a must read for fans of Lisa Gardner. Traci Hohenstein has weaved together a great mystery/thriller, and I hope there's going to be another in the series. Strong female characters, a hint of romance, an intriguing plot, and a missing person. It's got everything you want for an engrossing novel!
