ARC AUDIO REVIEW: The Trap by Catherine Ryan Howard
This is a terrifying story of missing women and the police who can't seem to find them or who kidnapped them. Told from different points of view you get to see through the eyes of all of the players. They always say it's the not knowing that hurts the most and Lucy is stuck. She can't seem to move forward until she knows what happened to her sister even going so far as to consent to a live interview - something she has never done. In it she condemns the police who she feels aren't working hard enough and puts herself in the crosshairs of the kidnapper.
I don't know if this book was meant to be terrifying but it is in its realism. The people are so ordinary the circumstances so normal that it really could be anyone. I'm not sure I like how it ended but it did put you squarely back in the shoes of the people involved. Well written and absorbing. The narration was engaging and read like true crime.
