2010 book 202

Chevy Stevens' Still Missing
I'm classifying this as a mystery, though it's really more of a thriller type of story. It's about a woman who's abducted by a stalker and kept trapped in a cabin in the woods for a year. The story is told through her therapy sessions after her return to the real world, a conceit that mostly works (though the narrative voice is occasionally a bit much). I was on the edge of my seat for most of the first two-thirds of the book, and even cried at one point, but the ending was so ridiculously bonkers that I can't recommend this in good faith. B-.
