“God knows, I’m no expert on relationships, but I do know when something’s good. And this thing we’ve created between us is precious and rare. I only hope it’s not fleeting, because for the first time in my adult life, I’ve given someone the power to hurt me.”
Linda Castillo, Gone Missing

Linda Castillo Hi Barbara--

I hope you enjoy the book. It's darker than the movie in terms of tone, language and violence. Hope that's okay with you! I loved the movie, btw. Neve was an excellent choice for Kate Burkholder. I think just about every character was well cast.

Thanks for writing and have a great day!

Linda
