Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Kelley Armstrong comes a brand new psychological thriller about the lengths one woman will go to in order to save a child.

“Few crimes are reported as quickly as a snatched kid.” 

That’s what the officer tells single mother Aubrey Finch after she reports a kidnapping. So why hasn’t anyone reported the little boy missing? Aubrey knows what she saw: a boy being taken against his will from the park. It doesn’t matter that the mother can’t be found. It doesn’t matter if no one reported it. Aubrey knows he’s missing. 

Instead, people question her sanity. Aubrey hears the whispers. She’s a former stay-at-home mom who doesn’t have primary custody of her daughter, so there must be something wrong with her, right? Others may not understand her decision to walk away from her safe life at home, but years of hiding her past - even from the people she loves - were taking their toll, and Aubrey knows she can’t be the mother or wife she envisions until she learns to leave her secrets behind. 

When the police refuse to believe her, she realizes that rescuing the boy is up to her alone. But after all the secrets, how far is she willing to go - even to protect a child?

5 Star Suspense...

This newest stand alone by Kelly Armstrong has it all! Mystery, suspense thriller with a great story and characters. The development of the protagonist is super especially since the story is told from in the first person from her point of view.
Aubrey Finch married her husband Paul with a suitcase full of secrets. These take a toll on the marriage and the two split. Throughout the story her past becomes very much a part of her present. Without the knowledge and skills she possesses, she probably would not survive.
The publisher's summary gives a decent overview but it doesn't convey depth of Aubrey's maternal instincts and the conviction to rescue a child she can't even prove exists.
Therese Plummer does an outstanding job narrating.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

This was a very fast paced book with a seriously bada$$ suburban housewife. Aubrey Finch is a real interesting character, she has a hidden past but has made a normal life for herself. She is the kind of person who can't stop and help when someone needs it and that gets her into a whole heap of trouble. I loved being in her head during this book, hearing her insecurities made her feel more real for me. This book wraps up completely but I would totally listen to a book 2 if one ever comes out.

The narration was perfect, I love Therese Plummer, she was the selling point for me with this book.

Great writing, but not a great audio experience

This is another great Kelley Armstrong book. It sucks you in and moves you along. It has complex and imperfect characters. I recommend this book but I do NOT recommend the audiobook. The story features a 2 year old girl, and therefor a truly obnoxious case of an adult doing a baby voice. I think that if the toddler (or another child with a slightly less annoying "voice") had had one more scene, I would have given up on the book completely.

Can this please become a series?

Well written, fascinating characters, twisted plot- it was a great book. The characters are so interesting that I wish there would be future books.

Narration ruined it.

The narrator's over the top dramatic, whispery voice ruined it. Also, the main character second, third and fourth guesses every thought and action, seeing ulterior motives everywhere, all voiced aloud in dramatic whispers. Disappointed as I usually enjoy this author.

Not even close to standard of Kelley's other books

I usually love Kelley's books, but I did not care for this one. The main character is annoying and the two sides of her that come out in the book do not seem plausible as a whole.

Annoying Narrator and Main Character

NO SPOILERS! I was waiting for this book to get better but it never did. The narrator was very annoying, by whispering throughout the book. The book did have a mystery but there were way too many characters and subplots that didn’t help the story. Also, the main character was kind of flaky.
