Publisher's Summary

In this compelling thriller, Larry Crane takes listeners back in history, weaving together the stories of two abducted girls - one factual, one fictional - as a framework to explore questions of truth, justice, character flaws, and marriage.

After a stranger abducts Marcella and Gavin's young daughter Hannah on her way to school, the couple struggles not only with the horror of her loss but also with their utter helplessness. They hire a private detective and try to get on with their lives, moving halfway across the country to New Jersey in search of a new start.

Once in New Jersey, however, Marcella becomes obsessed with the infamous Edgar Smith, accused of murdering a young girl - and with finding out the truth about his involvement in the crime.

As Marcella's investigation takes her deeper into the heart of the mystery, new information about Hannah's disappearance comes to light and calls into question Marcella and Gavin's ability to face the truth about themselves, their marriage, and their daughter's disappearance.

Missing Girls is a blisteringly smart novel that weaves together mystery, thriller, true crime, and alternate history into a fast-paced psychological drama.

    Story
    "Interesting premises but poor execution"
    Any additional comments?

    I have received a copy of this book in audio format from the author in exchange for an honest review.<br/><br/>Marcella and Gavin's youngest daughter Hannah is missing. The couple try to go on with their lives but this sudden incident just brings up many couple issues they previously had, amplifying them. They decide to move to another place hoping for a fresh start, but one of their new neighbors tells them the story of a girl who was kidnaped and murdered, which awakens many mixed feelings in Marcella, who is convinced that both cases could be related.<br/><br/>The premises of this book were quite interesting, but it was poorly executed. The story was lost amidst too many meaningless details, which made the pace slow. There are many changes of POV, but apart from this it also switches often from first to third person, making it quite confusing and difficult to follow at times. The conversations felt a bit forced, and I had issues connecting to the characters.<br/><br/>There was a supernatural factor that did not fit in the story in my opinion. That and Marcella saying that 'Things happen for a reason' were things that did not motivate me to keep listening.<br/><br/>Millie Santiago's narration was okay transmitting the character's emotions, but she did not differentiate much between voices, so the issue I had with changing POV, and first and third person was accentuated.<br/><br/>I felt  bit disappointed by the book in general. I expected a powerful story, but that was lost amongst many meaningless details and a poor execution.

    Story
    "Not a bad book but I found it lacking a lot"
    Where does Missing Girls rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was ok but not one I would listen to again


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    No, I found the mother to be annoying and the story to be frustrating.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I didn't have a favorite scene. It was nice when they finally found their daughter but even that was lacking


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

    Not really


    Any additional comments?

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "Terrifying"

    A family's worst nightmare, their child goes missing. The pain, guilt and rollercoaster emotions of a family trying to keep it together while searching for a kidnapped daughter. I had to listen to it twice. This is one you must have. I received this audiobook for free, but voluntarily reviewed.
