Linda Castillo, Gone Missing

“I feel as if we're the centre of the universe and a kind God has blessed two imperfect people with a perfect moment.”

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
