    In this excellent audio production of Flynn's runaway best-seller, Whelan's and Heyborne's narration draws listeners into the twisted plot involving spoiled wife Amy and callow husband Nick. The story is told in dueling viewpoints. Heyborne brings a youthful and earnest quality to Nick, even when he admits lying and holding back information about his wife, who goes missing on the couple's fifth anniversary. As the story progresses, Heyborne's voice becomes a little higher pitched to match Nick's whiny tones and slowly building desperation. Whelan employs a breezy yet commanding cadence for Amy, with her voice dropping and becoming cooler as Amy's predicament slowly unfolds. Depending on the chapter, the narrators are called upon to read the parts of the other spouse. Heyborne raises his pitch and bites off his words to reflect Amy, and Whelan's brisk cadence turns to an almost lazy drawl for Nick. Listeners will find themselves doubting both characters and their motives right up to the end. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
