Audible Editor Reviews

Annie O’Sullivan is your average 32-year-old successful businesswoman. She owns a large Victorian home, is up for a big project at her real estate firm, and has a doting boyfriend, loyal golden retriever, and a core group of close friends and family. But, she’s also got a major chip on her shoulder.

After being abducted from her last open house and held captive for an entire year by a psychopathic man named David, the former Annie is Still Missing — and still seeking answers about the deliberateness of her disappearance.

Chevy Stevens’ breakout book, Still Missing, narrated by Angela Dawe, explores the inner workings of the human mind when it’s nearly past redemption.

Set up as a first-person account divided into 26 therapy sessions, Annie vividly depicts a mixture of ghastly memories as a captive in the windowless seclusion of a small log cabin with her present-day demons — sleeping in the closet and timed urination.

The novel itself is stanch, but it is Dawe’s flippant, no-nonsense tone that brilliantly enacts Steven’s rigid, exact language, revealing Annie from the very beginning. In fact, Dawe’s performance so flawlessly portrays the shrewd, rough-and-tumble, yet angst-ridden young woman, you often forget you’re listening to a work of fiction.

Similarly, Dawe has no trouble transitioning to the deeply disturbed David, the mild-mannered boyfriend, or the overbearing, overdone mother. Regardless of character, her performance is seamless, creating an unrivaled listening experience.

A frighteningly intense tale of abuse, hope, betrayal, and the struggle to live on after epic devastation, Chevy Stevens’ Still Missing is an in-your-face rollercoaster ride of emotion that will leave listeners lining up again. —Sarah Zimmerman

Publisher's Summary

On the day she was abducted, Annie O’Sullivan, a 32-year-old Realtor, had three goals: sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she’s about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all.

Interwoven with the story of the year Annie spent captive in a remote mountain cabin — which unfolds through sessions with her psychiatrist — is a second narrative recounting the nightmare that follows her escape: her struggle to piece her shattered life back together, the ongoing police investigation into the identity of her captor, and the disturbing sense that things are far from over.

The truth doesn’t always set you free.

Still Missing is a shocking, visceral, brutal, and beautifully crafted debut novel about surviving the unsurvivable — and living to bear witness.

What the Critics Say

"The intense plot alternates between Annie's creepy confinement, her escape, and her attempts to readjust to real life, from going to the bathroom when she wants to managing her own meals. Still, Annie knows that a large part of her soul is still missing. Her transformation from victim adds to the believability of the enthralling plot." (Publishers Weekly)

    "All around great audiobook!"

    Story line, characters, emotion envoking,and narrator all come together in this audio. I didn't want to stop listening for any reason. There were several times I reacted to what was going on, either with a jerk, anger, or a tear. It has been awhile since a book has done that and I think the author, for a first time writer has done an amazing job. The narration was spot on and made the book even more compelling. You can't miss with this one. Highly recommend.

    A business professional with a voracious reading habit. My favorites are crime dramas and sci-fi/fantasy, but the occasional romance or history read is great too.

    Story
    "I was sad, angry, disgusted...I LOVED IT!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Still Missing the most enjoyable?

    It was vividly real. I could 'see' everything. You will live the story over and over even after the book is done.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Annie is complex, real, and vulnerable. She is the story.


    Have you listened to any of Angela Dawe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No but she is magnificent!! She brings the story to life. I will look for her performances again.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A grab you by the throat thriller you'll love to hate!!

    Where does Still Missing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a memorable story. It was almost painful to listen to in places.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Still Missing?

    I don't want to give too much away, but wow. I had to keep stopping the player while she was in the cabin and she got pregnant, gave birth and her brief relationship with her daughter.


    Did Angela Dawe do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, she brought all of them to life


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Lots of tears. And wait til you hear the end. I was shocked!


    Any additional comments?

    This one stayed with me for a long time. Really had me shaking my head.

    What did you love best about Still Missing?

    It took me a little while to be captured by Still Missing. I read Room not too long ago, and I thought it was going to be another captive story. I wasn't prepared to listen to a whole book about this poor girl's captivity. But the story changed and that was when it really got interesting to me. The ending was sort of a surprise and it kept me listening. I thought the narrator did a good job. This was an entertaining listen and I'm glad I selected it.

    Would you listen to Still Missing again? Why?

    Yes. Actually, my ipod is on auto-repeat and I found myself listening to it again. Sometimes it is easy to get wrapped up in "what's going to happen next?" Listening again would really allow you to get to know the characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Still Missing?

    The final conversation between Annie and her mother... it's like you can see Annie healing.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The first part of the book seemed so real that it was almost uncomfortable and painful to listed too... i cried a lot towards the middle of the book. However, by that point, you were really hoping for a resolution for Annie.

    "Exquisitely written, compelling story"
    What did you like best about this story?

    The prose is just right -- author pulls me into the story and keeps me there with concise, perceptive writing.


    What does Angela Dawe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator was just faantastic. Perfect for the character and the difficult task of conveying a compelling nightmare in a first-person format.

    I would liken this to Gillian Flynn's writing. Dark, creepy thriller. I couldn't stop listening! I think I finished this one in one day I liked it so much! Great book!

    "Great Listen! Great Story!"

    I enjoyed this story and found the presentation as a narrative to a "psychiatrist" whom we are never really introduced to or hear from to be quite unique. The way the story unfolds is surprising and heartwrenching. The ending is perfect...it doesn't dredge on, but is neatlly wrapped up. The narration is excellent with all the characters distinguishable from one another and the inflection and emotions believable.
