The year is 1996—a time before cell phones, status updates, and location tags—when you could still travel to a remote corner of the world and disappear. This is where we meet Gina and Duncan, a young couple madly in love, traveling around Europe on a romantic adventure. It's a time both thrilling and dizzying for Gina, whose memories are hazy following a head injury—and the growing sense that the man at her side is keeping secrets from her.
Intriguing ... As their personalities emerge, neither Duncan nor Gina is particularly likable, but Kirman's investment in well-placed twists and several surprising revelations uplifts the couple's story ... [A] clever thriller.
This is a slim and beautifully written novel, more literary than thriller but plot-driven all the same. Readers won’t know who to root for in this story that is ripe for discussion. Suggest to fans of unique mysteries.
