Never Missing, Never Found is a hell of a ride. Twisted, dark, and just as crazy as the best soap opera, it continues Amanda Panitch's tradition of writing page turners.
You'll either love or hate the story and the main character. After being kidnapped, Scarlett comes back home and has to adjust to her old life. Unable to do so, this sets a crazy turn of events. And by crazy I mean completely-out-of-your-mind turns that you'll never see coming. Panitch turns everything around and upside-down just when you think you know what's going on. Even though I loved the premise and the climax blindsided me, the ending wasn't strong enough. I'm not sure what I would change but I do know that the rest of the book deserved a stronger conclusion. Other than that, I really enjoyed this book, so much so that I read it very quickly. Amanda Panitch keeps pushing the envelope and I love that about her. I can't wait to read what she writes next.
If you're looking for a psychological thriller, give this one a try! And while you're at it, pick up Damage Done because...why not?
