From the heights of Mount To Be Read, I plucked STILL MISSING by Chevy Stevens, a gift from Lesa Holstine, librarian extraordinaire, complete with a gracious card.

The pale green hardback cover beseeches us to stroke it––which is peculiar, because it represents shattered glass, a harbinger of the story to come. The protagonist, Annie O’Sullivan, has had a horrific adventure on Vancouver Island.

That she has survived we know because she tells her story through sessions with her psychiatrist. Her adventure was truly awful––as it unfolds I wonder if I could have survived––but her troubles don’t end. She must now learn how to live in the "normal" world.

There were no false notes. It’s hard to believe STILL MISSING is a novel, it feels more like a true crime story.

A fabulous read.
