On the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick's wife Amy suddenly disappears. The police immediately suspect Nick. Amy's friends reveal that she was afraid of him, that she kept secrets from him. He swears it isn't true. A police examination of his computer shows strange searches. He says they aren't his. And then there are the persistent calls on his mobile phone. So what did really did happen to Nick's beautiful wife?
The best fiction takes the reader across genres and literary formulas creates something completely new. That is what Flynn does in this absolutely riveting and addictive novel that leads us along by the nose, thinking we know what's going on and then...rip...out goes the rug right out from under you.
This novel is not just about a disappearance, it's a beautifully crafted psychological novel about marriage and about the secrets we hold within.
Highly, highly recommended.
