Grim and unsettling ... a fast-paced read that is utterly absorbing.' - Kathy Reichs On the day she was abducted, Annie O'sullivan, a 32-year-old real estate agent, had three goals - sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she's about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all. Interwoven with the story of the year Annie spent as the captive of a psychopath in a remote mountain cabin, which unfolds through sessions with her psychiatrist, is a second narrative recounting events following her escape - her struggle to piece her shattered life back together and the ongoing police investigation into the identity of her captor. The truth doesn't always set you free. 'A heart-pounding debut. Stevens pulls out all the stops in this cat-and-mouse battle between a brilliant psychopath and his tenacious victim. By equal turns clever and compelling, this is the not-to-be missed thriller of the year.' - Lisa Gardner 'Not just a gripping mystery about a woman's abduction, a story about her hard-fought return - to self, to independence, to life. Frank, fierce, and sometimes even funny, this is a dark tale pinpricked with light - and told by an unforgettable heroine.' - Gillian Flynn, author of Sharp Objects '... a compelling, unputdownable thrill rid ... The twists are so treacherous and unexpected you'll need a neck brace by the time you finish.' - Linda Castillo, author of Sworn to Silence 'Engrossing, terrifying and ultimately full of girl-kick-ass, Still Missing will suck you in from page one.' - Chelsea Cain, author of Heartsick Still Missing is that rare debut find - a shocking, visceral, brutal and beautifully crafted thriller.
