Book was uninteresting and flat; I can't say I'd recommend. I kept waiting for some sort of revelation or action, but nothing. If you're into a feel-good, happy ending, then read this, but that's all it is.

When the men find him, the boy’s legs look like they were run through a wood-chipper. He’s bleeding heavily and near death, but he still has strength to tell them of the monster that attacked him: a dark, massive creature that emerged from the bottom of the lake. The child dies before he can say more. Sheriff Billy Wintone has seen too much superstition, drunkenness, and rage in this small Ozarks town to believe the delirious boy’s tale of a monster lurking under the lake’s dark waters. Like it or not, however, Wintone must scour the woods for the man or beast who killed the child before the start of fishing season.

While I thought the story was interesting, it was truly anti-climatic. I knew the twist all along, and wasn't surprised. Overall, it's a pretty easy listen.

This stunning debut novel from Australian author Lucy Christopher generated considerable buzz for its nonstop suspense and breathtaking imagery. Sixteen-year-old Gemma is on a layover at Bangkok Airport, headed to Vietnam with her parents. Then the vaguely familiar Ty drugs Gemma’s drink and steals her away. Her head swirling in confusion, Gemma soon finds herself fighting to survive in the unforgiving Outback.

Just when you think you know what's going to happen, it changes. So glad I chose to listen to this. It was a heartbreaking look into the reality of being stolen.
