When nine-year-old Avery Wooler goes missing, police launch an exhaustive investigation throughout her picturesque suburban neighborhood. Hoping to find just one lead that will bring the child home safely, they uncover so much envy, infidelity, and abuse behind each idyllic door that they begin to wonder if there is anyone who isn’t a suspect. Was it her father, William, with his volatile, violent tendencies? Or the scorned husband of William’s lover, seeking revenge for the shame their affair has wrought? Or maybe the odd boy down the street, quiet and withdrawn with everyone except Avery. Though motives abound, the startling truth will leave listeners in shock. Lapena (Not a Happy Family) crafts unsettling psychological suspense teeming with menace and malevolence. Narrator January LaVoy expertly evokes each flawed character and their frenzied thoughts. Her performance of the fast-paced, plot-driven narrative is eerie and engrossing.
VERDICT This audio will appeal to listeners seeking disturbing domestic suspense with tension and twists that are seemingly endless and utterly engrossing. Recommended for fans of Zoje Stage, Ashley Audrain, and Gillian Flynn.
