Dramatic. Chevy Stevens’ debut novel, Still Missing, is structured in chapters that reflect sessions that the protagonist, Annie O’Sullivan, has with her psychiatrist. At age 32, Annie was a realtor, and is abducted from an open house and taken to a remote cabin on Vancouver Island. The trauma she experienced becomes the dramatic action of the novel, and the pace remained fast from beginning to end. The deeper story of family and mothering verged on the melodramatic, but Stevens steered back from that edge every time she came close. Readers who like exciting stories and are willing to give new writers a look, will find this novel both interesting and entertaining.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
