Amy has left a treasure hunt of clues for Nick as an anniversary present and Nick must follow the clues as he tries to solve his wife's disappearance. Alternately, chapters are told through Amy's diary leading up to the day she goes missing. The two different perspectives of narrators give the reader great insight into this damaged marriage.
You will be on the edge of your seat reading this book. Just when you think you have it figured out, the plot takes ingenious twists. I, for one, think this book is worth the hype and the wait.
