This novel is a mild psychological thriller written in two voices. Kubica does a great job of leading the reader down a path that twists and turns in unexpected ways. This is a story of a roommate who goes missing and a parallel story of a young man in a nearby town coming to terms with the abandonment by his mother and the needs that it has created inside of him for comfort, companionship and friendship. I didn’t see the ending coming until near the very last pages. Kubica doesn’t read quite as well or as quickly as Gillian Flynn but the book is well done.
