An 11-year-old boy's violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City's most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.

Three years ago Toni's five-year-old daughter, Evie, disappeared after leaving school. The police have never been able to find her. There were no witnesses, no CCTV, no trace. But Toni believes her daughter is alive. And as she begins to silently piece together her memories, the full story of the past begins to reveal itself - and a devastating truth. Toni's mind is trapped in a world of silence. Her only chance to save herself is to manage the impossible: she must find a way to make herself heard. She must find her daughter.

I found this a slow read for about 3/4 of the book then when the end came it was good but just not worth all the time it took to get there.

Fast paced and a good read. I never saw the movie so the ending was a shocker. Loved the main characters. I think I will keep listening to the series.

Although this book had some beautiful writing and interesting thought on a post apocalyptic world, I did not love it. It was quite slow in parts and the constant jumping to different characters and timelines made for a confusing read. It's one if those books you feel like you should really love, but, well, not so much for me.

The story was quite suspenseful and the character development was very well done. I felt empathy with all of the main characters. For me, it was the narrator that really made this book excellent. She really gave the characters life. I love it when the narrator lets you forget you are really only listening to one person.

Everywhere Katie Brenner looks, someone else is living the life she longs for, particularly her boss, Demeter Farlowe. Demeter is brilliant and creative, lives with her perfect family in a posh townhouse, and wears the coolest clothes. Katie's life, meanwhile, is a daily struggle - from her dismal rental to her oddball flatmates to the tense office politics she's trying to negotiate. No wonder Katie takes refuge in not-quite-true Instagram posts, especially as she's desperate to make her dad proud.

I was not a fan of the narration on this one. I found the both narrators overly dramatic, especially the one at "home". I also found the story quite predictable. Although there was some good suspense and interesting twists to the story, I disliked the ending so much that I can't bring myself to give it any higher rating.
