GONE WITHOUT A TRACE by Mary Torjussen is a chilling psychological thriller about a woman whose boyfriend has vanished. Fans of I LET YOU GO and THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN will be gripped.

No one ever disappears completely...

You leave for work one morning.

Another day in your normal life.

Until you come home to discover that your boyfriend has gone.
His belongings have disappeared.
He hasn't been at work for weeks.
It's as if he never existed.

But that's not possible, is it?

And if he has gone without a trace
why do you still feel that someone is watching you?

My thoughts: As soon as I read the premise of this book, I knew I had to read it...it just seemed like my type of read - and it so was! I devoured this book and haven't stopped thinking of it since!!!

I loved the premise of this book - so unique! Can you imagine living with your significant other and then one day coming home and not only are they not there, but there is no trace of them ever being there? Nothing! And, as if that's not enough, they go as far as to erase all pictures, texts, and emails from your phone, computer, Facebook, etc. It's as if he didn't exist! Well, consider me hooked!

This book had me completely engaged, wondering what was going on, questioning every character that was introduced, everyone's motives. And then's there's our narrator, Hannah - she's a deeply flawed character who now becomes completely obsessed with finding Matt, to the detriment of everything else in her life. Did I love her? Did I connect with her? Not really, but there was something about her that kept me reading - I had to find out just how far she was going to go to find him, because it seemed like she wasn't going to stop until she did. And let me tell you - things definitely weren't as they appeared to be!

This book takes you on quite a ride and will have you coming up with all sorts of possible guesses as to what is really going on. I definitely did not see the ending coming at all - that was brilliantly done! I will say the book starts off a bit slow, but then it rachets up and doesn't let go. This is one of those reads that you will either love it or not, and I for one loved it! I cannot wait to see what comes next from this author - she is one to keep an eye on, for sure!
