Description

THE NEW TWISTY, GRIPPING READ FROM B. A. PARIS, THE AUTHOR OF THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLING NOVELS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS AND THE BREAKDOWN

“We’re in a new Golden Age of suspense writing now, because of amazing books like Bring Me Back, and I for one am loving it.” —Lee Child

"[An] outstanding Hitchcockian thriller.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

She went missing. He moved on. A whole world of secrets remained—until now.

Finn and Layla are young, in love, and on vacation. They’re driving along the highway when Finn decides to stop at a service station to use the restroom. He hops out of the car, locks the doors behind him, and goes inside. When he returns Layla is gone—never to be seen again. That is the story Finn told to the police. But it is not the whole story.

Ten years later Finn is engaged to Layla’s sister, Ellen. Their shared grief over what happened to Layla drew them close and now they intend to remain together. Still, there’s something about Ellen that Finn has never fully understood. His heart wants to believe that she is the one for him...even though a sixth sense tells him not to trust her.

Then, not long before he and Ellen are to be married, Finn gets a phone call. Someone from his past has seen Layla—hiding in plain sight. There are other odd occurrences: Long-lost items from Layla’s past that keep turning up around Finn and Ellen’s house. Emails from strangers who seem to know too much. Secret messages, clues, warnings. If Layla is alive—and on Finn’s trail—what does she want? And how much does she know?

A tour de force of psychological suspense, Bring Me Back will have you questioning everything and everyone until its stunning climax.

  • Terrible Story Terribly Told

    Do not waste your time on this foolish story. It hardly makes sense. The plot is idiotic. The revelation of mental illness is rolled out sloppily. It’s not boring. You want to know what happens (especially after you spend your money). But it’s not worth it. Do not buy it! I expected more from B A Paris, as her first two novels were good. Now, I question whether she’s a good writer.

    This book caught my attention from the start, but half way through, it got boring and went on and on without much of anything new. It never made sense that someone who disappeared may have returned 12 years later. Why that long? A dysfunctional family and relationship, and violence. Then the ending that I couldn't wait for, was too unbelievable. I almost stopped reading it. Towards the end, I wanted to be done with the same old on and on plot, and started skimming it to finish. It was not worth the price.

    Good premise and characters but I guessed the twist 1/4 of the way through.
  • Same old premise, knew after a few chapters what would happen

    What a great book! The suspense was great....even if it was all a little far fetched! It’s interesting because, while I was reading the book it seemed realistic, but once I finished, to sum it all up, its totally unrealistic! Read it to see what I mean!
  • Disappointing

    Read it in a few hours. Kept me engrossed. However the ending was disappointing. I assume she didn’t know how to tie up the loose ends and took the easy way out.
