If the author leans on hateable characters (like The Girl on the Train) or other thriller tropes (alcoholism, mental illness, etc. I'm afraid I have to disagree with one character telling that our decision-making capabilities aren't fully developed until we are twenty-five years old.

If you've been active in the book community at all this month then you're sure to have noticed that Then She Was Gone is an April Pick by Book Of The Month, so naturally this is one that's being hyped for a reason-it's just that good! Laurel’s family has been mourning their daughter Ellie’s death for ten years, and then her body is found. Jewell teases out her twisty plot at just the right pace, leaving readers on the edge of their seats.It's been ten years since her daughter disappeared, seven years since her marriage ended, and only months since the last clue in Ellie's case was unearthed. Her disappearance takes a huge toll on the family, a family that breaks apart as many families in this type of situations often do.

As a reader I pretty guessed what had happened to Ellie, in fact the sisters I was reading this with also had the same thoughts. Missing persons tropes are common in mysteries and thrillers, and the theme has been written and explored in many predictable ways, but also in many clever, even shocking ways. Then Laurel is introduced to his little girl: Poppy, and she is dumbfounded to discover that Poppy bears a striking resemblance to Ellie, her Ellie. I wasn’t satisfied with the ending as there were still storylines that weren’t completely tied up and explained. Ten years after her teenage daughter disappears, a woman crosses paths with a charming single father whose young child feels eerily familiar.The interesting fact is the way of disappearance of Noelle reminds of her the way of disappearance of her own daughter. Brooks presents a case for making room for Bigfoot in the world while peppering his narrative with timely social criticism about bad behavior on the human side of the conflict: The explosion of Rainier might have been better forecast had the president not slashed the budget of the U. Showboat Medical Examiner Margot Heavner makes it clear that, breaking with her department’s earlier practice ( The Bone Collection, 2016, etc.

Told from multiple points of view, alternating between ‘then’ and ‘now’, I was enthralled as everything was revealed. Gripping and heartbreaking, I shed more than a few tears as the book came to an end with a gut-wrenching epilogue. I always have a hard time finding thrillers that are shocking but don’t rely on shock value, if that makes sense.I was so intrigued in finding out what happened to Ellie Mack that I was racing through those pages as fast as I could! BookBrowse seeks out and recommends the best in contemporary fiction and nonfiction—books that not only engage and entertain but also deepen our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. She drifted away from her other two children, Hanna and Jake, and eventually she and her husband, Paul, divorced. The bad ones were good characters in so much that they were creepy and sinister while at the same time being damaged. There were too many unanswered questions and she just knew that Ellie wouldn't simply walk away from the life she loved.
