How Quickly She Disappears
How Quickly She Disappears | Raymond Fleischmann
6 posts | 3 read | 12 to read
The Dry meets The Silence of the Lambs in this intoxicating tale of literary suspense, set in the relentless Alaskan landscape, about madness and obsession, loneliness and grief, and the ferocious bonds of family.... My proposition is very simple: I am going to ask you for three gifts, and for each gift you deliver, I will take you one step closer to Jacqueline. It's been twenty years since Elisabeth watched her twin sister, Jacqueline, disappear without a trace. Now thirty-year-old Elisabeth is living far from home in a small Alaskan town. She's in a loveless marriage and has a precocious young daughter she loves more than anything but who reminds her too much of her long-missing sister. Elisabeth's loneliness--and guilt--grows more unbearable each day. But through it all, she clings to the impossible belief that her sister is still alive and that they'll be reunited. But then Alfred, a dangerous stranger with a plan of his own, arrives in town and commits an inexplicable act of violence. And he offers a startling revelation: He knows exactly what happened to Elisabeth's sister, but he'll reveal this truth only if Elisabeth fulfills three requests. Increasingly isolated from her neighbors and imprisoned by the bitter cold and her own obsession, Elisabeth can almost hear her sister's voice saying, Come and get me. And so she will, even if it means putting herself--and her family--in danger.

My favorite librarian brought this one in for me from her #ARCs & said it was really good. 🤗I‘ve just read a few pages but it seems intriguing & I love the rural Alaska setting. ❄️ With tonight‘s poke bowl dinner. It was a loooong... Monday.

She one day meets a man named Alfred who claims to have information regarding her sister, but will give it up for a price. Elisabeth agrees to play a very dangerous game, with a very dangerous man in exchange for clues

First of all, any creepy book set in Alaska just makes it creepier. In a good way. I did not read any blurb about this book, so I wasn't sure if it was a horror, suspense or thriller, which made it even better for me.

I really enjoyed this book and found it to be a slow burning mystery. The grief that Elizabeth feels from missing her twin is palpable. An impressive debut!

Velvetfur That does sound good, from the synopsis on here 👍 4mo
