BLOG TOUR - If I Go Missing


If you’re reading this, I’ve gone missing.

I close the binder I’ve been writing in, and walk into the living room. As I stare out of the window at your house next door, I think about all the things I stand to lose if someone comes for me. My handsome, loving husband, who has no idea what I’ve done. My family, who have supported me no matter what. This beautiful home near the ocean, where I thought I would be safe.

Everyone says that I’m paranoid, but I just think I’m prepared. My secrets have placed me in terrible danger.

So if the worst happens, this binder contains everything you’ll need to find me, hidden in a place only you could guess. You’ve always known me best of everyone, ever since we were girls. You’ll be able to put the pieces together and uncover the truth.

Only you can find me. But you’ll need to do it fast.

Because if you don’t, all your lies will come to light too…

From the no.1 Kindle and Amazon charts bestselling author of The Surgeon, comes an outrageously twisty and compelling psychological thriller that you simply won’t be able to put down! Perfect for fans of Shari Lapena, Gillian Flynn and Freida McFadden.

#incaseigomissing is not a new concept. Determinedly, Alana is strives to rally her fellow teachers to create binders for the students at her school. The idea is that if a person has a binder that contains relative information, even locks of hair for DNA purposes, lives could be saved. If this binder was made available to law-enforcement, someone that unfortunately would go missing would have a better chance to be found within the first 48 hours than someone who does not have a binder. 

While Alana is pushing her agenda, she is about to have new neighbors. In fact, it is a couple she knew from high school, and Alana thought she would never see them again. They are Ray and Chloe, and even though Alana is married to Daniel, just seeing Ray again brings back memories of passion and moments of longing that she thought were long since buried. Meanwhile, there is strong tension between Alana and Chloe, especially since Chloe is now married to Alana’s first love.

When one of Alana’s students goes missing, not only is the importance of the binder brought to the fore, but for more than one reason, Alana’s character takes on the role of an unreliable narrator. There is a lot of history that is soon uncovered about Alana, and this throws the story into full throttle. In some cases, Alana’s consideration of the past comes into play, all while present events intensify. 

With chilling words, the binder would start off with, “If you’re reading this, I’ve gone missing”. Definitely chilling, making this a compelling read, one that kept me turning pages late into the night.

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
