I so terribly wished to enjoy this book. It has such an eye-catching cover, is being advertised as a thriller in the vein of THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN, and is composed with a seriously special twist: the secret is informed backwards.
This book actually fell flat for me. Regardless of (or possibly due to the fact that of) its special plot structure, the secret element of the story was sorely doing not have, and I had a hard time to complete it. Fans of Megan Miranda’s YA books may still delight in ALL THE MISSING GIRLS, however for readers searching for an edge-of-your-seat thriller, this isn’t the book for you.

On the night of her disappearance, Tyler called Annaleise and she consulted with him, Nicolette and Daniel. Due to the fact that she has actually been blackmailing Patrick and has actually now extended her blackmail reach to Nicolette as she believes Nicolette has cash since of Everett, they challenge her.
She has actually subtracted that somebody in the Farrell household eliminated Corinne due to the fact that, on the night of Corinne’s disappearance, she had actually innocently taken photos of Nicolette’s home and in taking a look at them just recently understood that there was a body on the deck.

While all of this is going on, rather of attempting to persuade her dad not to offer your home as Daniel desires her to do, she attempts to keep him from speaking to the authorities.
