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)

    Story
    "Could not put down my headphones!!!"
    What did you love best about Still Missing?

    The unique storytelling device of presenting the main character's one-sided conversation with her "shrink" drives this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved following Annie's thought processes as she dealt with her life after her abduction while also slowly drawing out the details of the experience. I admired her honesty and self-awareness.


    Which character – as performed by Angela Dawe – was your favorite?

    Annie's voice was perfect. The pacing was just right for every circumstance. You could totally feel her every emotion from fear to defiance, confusion to sadness, anger to optimism.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This book moved me to tears several times, but I can't share the details without giving away plot points.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't give out five stars easily; this book deserves every one for both the story and narration. I'll definitely be looking for this author and narrator in the future.

    Story
    "Brutal and Course, not fully developed"

    *The book does have profanity and a rape description but I have read many books I found much more offensive*
    The story begins with a nightmare: working alone, only to be taken. What happened during the period of captivity is told during a series of therapy sessions. At the end of the book, I felt that the author spent so much time developing the story of captivity that end was rushed. Overall, I was disappointed. The idea or premise of the book is excellent but I was left with a feeling that it needed further development. Maybe the book needed a few extra chapters or pages. The ending needed further development.

    "Great book and reader"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that likes a good drama/mystery


    What other book might you compare Still Missing to and why?

    The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. The Forgotten Garden had lots of emotion, drama and suspense to keep you going as did "Still Missing".


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

    This was the first reading I have listened to by Angela Dawe. Her reading made you feel you were there.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending was so emotional. However there were emotional segments throughout.


    Any additional comments?

    She is a great writer and has a good imagination for story telling.

    Story
    "Outstanding Thriller - Compelling and Authentic"
    What did you love best about Still Missing?

    I loved the author's voice/writing. Perfect, in my humble opinion. Straight forward, tightly crafted, brilliantly done.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the mystery of not knowing how the hell the protagonist got away from the "freak." We know she's free at the start of the story, but the agony of her trials and how she escaped (and who was behind it all) were magnificently revealed in a chapter at a time, told through patient to psychiatrist.


    What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

    Angela Dawe is one of the finest narrators I've yet heard. Kudos for representing the author in an authentic, sensitive, and delightful manner. Outstanding job!


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

    Any book depicting abuse makes me cringe. Yet I also loved the way the author showed how almost human the freak could seem from time to time. Horrible, yet. But at times, almost likeable for short bursts of time. Well done, Ms. Stevens!


    Any additional comments?

    I'll be looking for more books by this talented new author. ;o)

    "Excellent Listen"

    I wasn't sure what to expect with this listen. It turned out to be excellent! The author, Chevy Stevens, gives enough detail about the conditions that Annie endures while held captive for a year without crossing the line of too much detail (there are many writers who go too far and lose me as a result).

    Stevens was creative by having Annie tell her story in therapy sessions.

    The narrator was good for this particular book.

    "Riveting and suspensful"
    What did you love best about Still Missing?

    It was interesting to hear the story from the "victim" (non victim) point of view.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a HORRIBLE situation to have to imagine but the author and performer do an excellent job telling this fascinating ordeal.


    What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

    She did a good job giving each character their own 'voice'.
