Review: Hunting Annabelle
Sean Suh is done with killing. After serving three years in a psychiatric prison, he’s determined to stay away from temptation. But he can't resist Annabelle--beautiful, confident, incandescent Annabelle--who alone can see past the monster to the man inside. The man he's desperately trying to be.
Then Annabelle disappears.
Sean is sure she’s been kidnapped—he witnessed her being taken first hand—but the police are convinced that Sean himself is at the centre of this crime. And he must admit, his illness has caused him to “lose time” before. What if there’s more to what happened than he’s able to remember?
Though haunted by the fear that it might be better for Annabelle if he never finds her, Sean can’t bring himself to let go of her without a fight. To save her, he’ll have to do more than confront his own demons… He'll have to let them loose.
I usually dislike books that are in first person perspective because I like to know what all of the characters are thinking, but in this instance, I was so wrapped up in Sean's mind that I didn't even miss what everyone else was doing. I loved this psychological thriller, not because of what it was set up to be, but because of the dark turn in the end that I didn't even see coming.
I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
