's review

it was amazing

Disappeared is not a stereotypical thriller high on adrenaline and low on character -- it's a thriller with heart and soul, a quiet thriller with tension that builds throughout. In fact, I would describe it as part thriller, part travelogue, part personal journey, part geopolitical lesson, and even part MacGyver! (That last reference will make sense if you read the story.) The narrative felt very personal -- in part due to the present-tense, first-person approach, in part due to Spring's skill -- and I almost felt I had climbed into Julie's world and was traveling alongside her.

By the end, you'll be on the edge of your seat, hoping for these women to extricate themselves from the nightmare in which they've become entrenched. And you'll celebrate the female cunning and resourcefulness they employ to that end. This page-turner would make an excellent movie or limited TV series.

I am now adding Spring's first novel, Toward the Light, to my reading list.
