And is now a Movie and of course this audiobook I will admit I am late to the table with my reading of this book but it was well worth the 19 hours.

Nick and Amy are celebrating their five year anniversary. Amy always plans a treasure hunt with riddles that have to do with important events that she remembers from the previous year. Nick, never does well at these hunts because men and women are different and what is monumentally important to one doesn’t even register to the other.

This year Amy disappears. A struggle at their home and she is gone. Nick looks for her as the police look at him. This Mystery worries Nick. Where could Amy be? The twists and turns in this book are Hitchcockesque. And the narrators voice Nick and Amy brilliantly. Listen to this audiobook and hear what everyone else is talking about.

This book was purchased by me for my listening pleasure.
