The Girl Who Was Taken Summary

Nicole Cutty and Megan McDonald are both high school seniors in the small town of Emerson Bay, North Carolina. When they disappear from a beach party one warm summer night, police launch a massive search. No clues are found, and hope is almost lost until Megan miraculously surfaces after escaping from a bunker deep in the woods.

A year later, the bestselling account of her ordeal has turned Megan from local hero to national celebrity. It s a triumphant, inspiring story, except for one inconvenient detail: Nicole is still missing. Nicole’s older sister Livia, a fellow in forensic pathology, expects that one day soon Nicole’s body will be found, and it will be up to someone like Livia to analyze the evidence and finally determine her sister’s fate. Instead, the first clue to Nicole’s disappearance comes from another body that shows up in Livia’s morgue that of a young man connected to Nicole’s past. Livia reaches out to Megan for help, hoping to learn more about the night the two were taken. Other girls have gone missing too, and Livia is increasingly certain the cases are connected.

But Megan knows more than she revealed in her blockbuster book. Flashes of memory are coming together, pointing to something darker and more monstrous than her chilling memoir describes. And the deeper she and Livia dig, the more they realize that sometimes true terror lies in finding exactly what you’ve been looking for.

Flows nicely with all the characters and their development throughout the book. Just when I thought I had it figured out, I was wrong. Good book, I would highly recommend picking this one up. This is a new author for me, so far I haven’t been disappointed.

A good depiction of what happens when teens get too careless and try to have too much fun. You never know who in a crowd may have bad mental problems. A good read!

Having really enjoyed Charlie Donlea’s debut novel Summit Lake last year, I was looking forward to his new thriller. It didn’t disappoint. Even if you’ve sworn off any more “Girl”-titled novels this one is a well-written and original mystery that is worthwhile adding.
The main character, Livia Cutty, is training as a medical examiner. A career aspiration attributable to the loss of her younger sister, Nicole, whose disappearance over a year ago has since turned into a cold case. When Livia finds out that a body on her autopsy table had links with her missing sister, Livia starts investigating on her own.
The story switches back and forth between the present day and the time leading up to Nicole’s disappearance. In addition, there are several points of view. On the same night Nicole disappeared, one of her classmates, Megan McDonald, was abducted, but she made it back home a couple of weeks later.
I thought the alternating timeframes and perspectives worked well and were straightforward to follow. The shortish chapters kept the momentum going and I was pretty much gripped the entire way through. I enjoyed reading about Livia’s work as a forensic pathologist. She was an interesting and strong character.
Mr Donlea threw plenty of red herrings and I’m afraid I fell for all the ‘clues’. The finale was an exciting surprise. In the end, there were a couple of things I would have liked more information on, but overall, a solid mystery with a very intriguing plot and well-developed characters.
