Selected by Indie Booksellers for the July 2010 Indie Next List
“I read this debut novel in two sleepless nights and found it simply gripping from the very first page, and truly chilling in its verisimilitude. As the main character Annie revisits the tale of her abduction and captivity at the hands of a deeply disturbed (and disturbing) man, it eventually becomes clear that, despite having won her freedom, her ordeal is far from over. This is surely an author to look out for!”
-- Whitney Spotts, Schuler Books & Music, Lansing, MI


Description

On the day she was abducted, Annie O’Sullivan, a thirty-two year old realtor, had three goals—sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever- patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she's about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all. Interwoven with the story of the year Annie spent as the captive of psychopath in a remote mountain cabin, which unfolds through sessions with her psychiatrist, is a second narrative recounting events following her escape—her struggle to piece her shattered life back together and the ongoing police investigation into the identity of her captor.

The truth doesn’t always set you free.

Still Missing is that rare debut find--a shocking, visceral, brutal and beautifully crafted debut novel.




About the Author

Chevy Stevens is the author of Never Knowing. Before becoming a writer, she worked as a realtor. When she held open houses, she had a lot of time waiting by herself between potential buyers, and Stevens would spend this time scaring herself with all the things that could happen to her. The most terrifying scenario she thought up became the story behind Still Missing. Stevens grew up on a ranch on Vancouver Island, and she still calls the island home. When she’s not writing, she’s hiking with her husband and her dog in the local mountains.
