"An edge-of- your-seat thriller/mystery. Just when you think you know what's going on, another unexpected plot twist is added. Although it is told from alternating 5 alternating points if view, it is easy to follow and keep characters straight. Expertly uses flashbacks to fill the reader in on the relationships the characters had with Ben. Definitely recommend this book. "
"Good book! It was interesting to read how everything played out. Nothing was too shocking, and it was an enjoyable read. "
"A thriller/mystery about a sister searching for her missing brother after getting to his Paris apartment. The occupants of the other apartments in the building create a complex web that Jess must uncover to find Ben. While I liked the story here, my ADHD couldn’t handle the fast paced frequent point of view swaps. I would mindlessly read and have to go back frequently to process what I just read. For that reason I’m rating it a 3/5, but would recommend reading for people who don’t fall victim to a wandering mind while reading. "
