Publisher Comments:

On the day she was abducted, Annie OSullivan, 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.

Review:

"Stevens's impressive debut, a thriller set on Vancouver Island, pulsates with suspense that gets a power boost from the jaw-dropping but credible closing twist. In psychiatric sessions, Annie O'Sullivan, a 32-year-old realtor with a nice boyfriend and a demanding mother, describes her year-long ordeal as the captive of a rapist. Annie was about to close up an open house for a property when an affable guy who introduced himself as David showed up. In short order, David kidnapped her and held her hostage in a remote mountain cabin. There, he raped her daily, regulated every moment, and forced her to 'play house.' The intense plot alternates between Annie's creepy confinement, her escape, and her attempts to readjust to real life, from going to the bathroom when she wants to managing her own meals. Still, Annie knows that a large part of her soul is 'still missing.' Her transformation from victim adds to the believability of the enthralling plot. 150,000 first printing. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

“Stevens's blistering debut follows a kidnap victim from her abduction to her escape — and the even more horrifying nightmare that follows... A grueling, gripping demonstration of melodramas darker side.” Kirkus (starred review)

Review:

"Engrossing, terrifying and ultimately full of girl-kick-ass, Still Missing will suck you in from page one." Chelsea Cain, author of Heartsick, Sweetheart, and Evil At Heart

Synopsis:

“An electrifying read… I haven’t read anything so terrifying since Red Dragon.” —Stephen King

A tale of desire, obsession, and deadly mystery, with echoes of Vertigo

Dr. Caleb Maddox is a San Francisco toxicologist studying the chemical effects of pain. After a bruising breakup with his girlfriend, he is drinking whiskey at the speakeasy House of Shields when a hauntingly seductive woman appears by his side. Emmeline whispers to Caleb over absinthe, gets his blood on her fingers, and then brushes his ear with her lips as she says goodbye. He must find her. 

  
As his search begins, Caleb becomes entangled in a serial murder investigation. The police are fishing men from the bay, and the postmortems are inconclusive. One man vanished from House of Shields the night Caleb met Emmeline. When questioned, Caleb can't offer any information. But he is secretly helping the city’s medical examiner, an old friend, understand the chemical evidence on the victims’ remains. Caleb’s search for the killer soon entwines with his hunt for Emmeline, and the closer he gets to each, the more dangerous his world becomes. 
 
The Poison Artist is a gripping literary thriller about obsession and damage, about a man unmoored by an unspeakable past and an irresistible woman who offers the ultimate escape.

This story has stuck with me still after reading it months ago. It's the kind of story that pulls you in and doesn't let go until the end, and then some.A subject we don't want to hear about but can't let go. I recommend to anyone who loves a good mystery.

What could have been a Hollywood re-run storyline made me avoid this book for awhile. I finally gave in and was profoundly impressed. The twists and turns, the suspense, but primarily the superb storytelling. Loved and appreciated being fully engrossed in this unique and engaging book.
