Rory Richards reminds me of a sociopath. From the very beginning, when he found out that his wife was missing, he was so excited about it? Sure, he didn’t outwardly share his thoughts, but his internal thoughts really disturbed me. He was basically cheering the situation on, like YES SHE’S GONEEEEE! It made me wonder if he was the one that made her disappeared, or even killed her, and tried to commit suicide to have an alibi. Could you imagine?
I liked the writing style for this one, putting us in the mind and point of view of Rory, the one character that I didn’t trust from the moment the story started. It really gives that air of thrill, and not to mention this is also considered a psychological thriller. Also, since this story is told from Rory’s point of view, the only kind of information we can get about his wife Maggie is from him, which – with him being a completely unreliable narrator – we would have to take his words as a grain of salt. Sure, that’s what he thinks about her, but is that the truth? Can any information about Maggie truly be objective when it comes from her husband? Especially one that was ecstatic with the news that she was missing?
This kept me interested for the whole story, and I think that it did have those thriller aspects that I personally enjoy. I was committed to the end, and by the time it was over, I was pretty shocked at the twist. Not what I was expecting, and honestly I try not to immediately guess the mystery in the beginning so that I can keep my mind open until the reveal. It usually works for me honestly, and I’m glad I did the same!
