Every now and then a book comes along that you just simply cannot put down. This is one of them ! If you like a good psychological thriller, I recommend this debut book from Chevy Stevens.
On the day she was abducted, Annie O'Sullivan, a 32 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 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 as the captive of a 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 life back together and the ongoing police investigation into the identity of her captor.
Bestselling author Lisa Gardner said of this book "A heart-pounding debut. Stevens pulls out all the stops in this cat-and-mouse battle between a brilliant psychopath and his tenacious victim. By equal turns clever and compelling, Still Missing is the not-to-be missed thriller of the year."
I started reading this book in bed on Sunday night and finished it just before 4am this morning. Of course in between reading sessions, I managed to get started on my Reversible Hungarian Rug ..
The Bendigo wool is beautiful to work with but I did have to frog about 4 rounds at the beginning as it seemed to be puckering. Went up to a 5.00mm hook which sounds big for 8ply but I think with it being such a dense pattern and also wool rather than acrylic, the 5.00mm is giving a better result.
