In Still Missing, a thirty-two year old realtor named Annie is abducted by a man (“David”) who arrives at the last minute at an open house. He holds her captive in a mountain cabin from which there is no escape. Her survival depends upon her keeping David happy while he micromanages every aspect of her life. Annie’s terror is multiplied after she gives birth to David’s child and, although the child’s father is a “monster,” Annie loves the baby and is afraid that he will harm the helpless infant.
Adding to the suspense is that we learn the details of Annie’s captivity entirely from her point of view as she tells her story. This book is not for the squeamish. There is sex and violence and a jaw-dropping twist at the end. It’s terrifying, but I had to read it until I finished.
