Recommended for: fans of Gone Girl, mysteries, suspense fiction

This was a well crafted mystery, tight and intriguing. This is an impressive début novel.

The beginning had me hooked right away. I wanted to know what happened to the protagonist, one Jane Jenkins, and more importantly for this story, what she was going to do about it. Information is dealt out to us at a good pace, quick enough to fit with this face paced tale. As we follow her along, tension is maintained by the use of inter-spacing news reports and blog articles between chapters. This creates a sense of tension that builds as the story continues. This continues up to a climax and denouement that are satisfying to the reader.

I found that was not a big fan of the protagonist, and around halfway through the book I found that I did not like her at all. This is okay, she was always interesting, and Elizabeth Little did not fail to keep my attention on Jane.

I would recommend this book to fans of mysteries and suspense fiction. You would not be disappointed in checking this one out.
