Publisher's Summary

Their son is gone. Deep down, they think they’re to blame.

Summertime in Bleak Harbor means tourists, overpriced restaurants, and the Dragonfly Festival. One day before the much-awaited and equally chaotic celebration, Danny Peters, the youngest member of the family that founded the town five generations ago, disappears.

When Danny’s mother, Carey, and stepfather, Pete, receive a photo of their brilliant, autistic, and socially withdrawn son tied to a chair, they fear the worst. But there’s also more to the story. Someone is sending them ominous texts and emails filled with information no one else should have. Could the secrets they’ve kept hidden - even from one another - have led to Danny’s abduction?

As pressure from the kidnapper mounts, Carey and Pete must face their own ugly mistakes to find their son before he’s taken from them forever.

Slow, not believable, not for me...

I just could not get into this book. At 3 1/2 hours in I thought thought the story was picking up. At about 5 hours in I increased the play speed to 1.5x the normal speed. I stuck with it at this point since I was mildly curious how the story would be resolved. Once that happened I was wondering why I had continued. I found the conclusion preposterous given the characters involved. I will not spoil this for anyone but it is not on my recommended list.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Meh

Tried hard to like this book, especially since it was a daily deal for $2. I listened for over 4 hours, but I never connected with any of the characters.
Narrator made me want to take a nap.

Good twist

Leaves you guessing for quite awhile and has some interesting past history connections.

You’ll enjoy it.

Disappointing

I liked this author's previous books, but this was a major disappointment. The characters were undeveloped, and the story wasn't compelling.

Bleak Harbor

Great story. Could not predict what or how story would go. Danny’s mother got on my nerves.
