Free on Kindle Unlimited. I received a free copy of this book. I am leaving this review voluntarily. 

This book had some good moments but struggled to find its voice.  Since this is a novella everything seems very rushed.  I'm not sure what year this is supposed to be in the book but the family only had one cell phone which is strange and the police waited an awfully long time to go investigate when one of their own doesn't show up for work. 

The beginning was the best part as it surprised me I was drawn in by it and was waiting for it to develop more but it just didn't happen. I'm not sure if this was supposed to be a religious book but there was an element of that in the writing. Either way I just didn't connect to the story.
