Goodreads Synopsis:

One night, Molly Clarke walked away from her life.

She doesn’t want to be found.

Or at least, that’s the story.

The car abandoned miles from home.

The note found at a nearby hotel.

The shattered family that couldn’t be put back together.

They called it a “walk away.”

It happens all the time.

Women disappear, desperate to leave their lives behind and start over.

But is that what really happened to Molly Clarke?


Molly Clarke was driving home from her son’s football game when she’s caught in a storm. She’s upset because her son ignored her despite driving four hours to see him play. Her husband no longer speaks to her and her daughter says she hates her. That’s all stemming from when Molly hit and killed their nine-year-old daughter five years ago. When a truck stops on the side of the road to rescue Molly from her broken down car, she jumps in. She wasn’t heard from again, until a note was found saying that she was leaving her family. Two weeks later, her daughter receives a tip about her mother’s disappearance that sends her back to the small town where her mother was last seen.

This was such a fast paced thriller. There were constant twists and cliffhangers at the ends of the chapters that made it difficult to put the book down. The chapters became shorter as the pacing of the story sped up at the end of the story, which made it easier to fly through it.

I was quite surprised at the ending. I thought I had it all figured out, but I was wrong. The clues were clever in the way that they could refer to different characters, so I didn’t guess correctly. Even when I realized the truth right before it was revealed, it was still such a shock.

This was a great, fast paced thriller.

Thank you St. Martin’s Press for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
