A Goodreads user asked:
Why didn't they ask around the coffee shop and other customers if someone knew him?! Seems like a creative license was used. Hopefully I didn't miss anything.
Irene Paula...why would you post such a MAJOR SPOILER without hiding it? Right there for all to see! All who didn't read the book yet will have their experience ruined. I enjoyed this book and wish for others to enjoy it as well. Please delete or hide it!
Dure Adan Saw this a Walmart. Didn't think id like it and thought it was good until the last chapter!!!! One of the best turn over ever! Didnt see it coming.
This answer contains spoilers… (view spoiler)[Your question is a little confusing... are you asking why her friend/doctor/the police went to the coffee shop and asked if anyone remembered what a guy looked like who went there 22 years ago? The turnover of both employees and customers, not to mention the limits of human memory, makes this seem absurd. Or maybe I misunderstood your question, the undefined pronouns make it rather vague.
