Description

THE NEW TWISTY, GRIPPING READ FROM B.A. PARIS, THE AUTHOR OF THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLING NOVELS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS AND THE BREAKDOWN

“We’re in a new Golden Age of suspense writing now, because of amazing books like Bring Me Back, and I for one am loving it.” —Lee Child

"[An] outstanding Hitchcockian thriller.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

She went missing. He moved on. A whole world of secrets remained—until now.

Finn and Layla are young, in love, and on vacation. They’re driving along the highway when Finn decides to stop at a service station to use the restroom. He hops out of the car, locks the doors behind him, and goes inside. When he returns Layla is gone—never to be seen again. That is the story Finn told to the police. But it is not the whole story.

Ten years later Finn is engaged to Layla’s sister, Ellen. Their shared grief over what happened to Layla drew them close and now they intend to remain together. Still, there’s something about Ellen that Finn has never fully understood. His heart wants to believe that she is the one for him...even though a sixth sense tells him not to trust her.

Then, not long before he and Ellen are to be married, Finn gets a phone call. Someone from his past has seen Layla—hiding in plain sight. There are other odd occurrences: Long-lost items from Layla’s past that keep turning up around Finn and Ellen’s house. Emails from strangers who seem to know too much. Secret messages, clues, warnings. If Layla is alive—and on Finn’s trail—what does she want? And how much does she know?

A tour de force of psychological suspense, Bring Me Back will have you questioning everything and everyone until its stunning climax.

  • Not worth reading

    I waisted my time on this one , this book is so unrealistic especially the end. The dolls thing is so stupid and useless, I don’t find the ending as a plot twist at all. I don’t want to spoil the book but go purchase something else. You will regret reading it.
  • Too much repeating details

    At first I was intrigued with the story. But then I found the constant back and forth frustrating. The repeat of details over and over so many times was needless. I found myself flipping through the repeats. The end was easy enough to guess. It was just a matter of how the writer got us to it.

    Twists and turns brought to light by the trio? One? Two? More? One never knew the impact of Russian dolls. You’ll be pulled into the story unable to leave the written word. Let’s take a trip. Shall we?

    It was an OK read. I LOVED behind closed doors but this book doesn’t come close to comparing. It really drags on in the middle, repeating a lot of the same thoughts over and over.
  • B.A Paris is such a captivating writer

    Behind Close Doors, and The Breakdown had somehow a similar taste. While I was kind of unhappy how rushed and puzzling the ending felt in Behind Close Doors, it was a good story that proved B.A Paris is awesome. The Breakdown was a step-up from the Behind Closed Doors, a better distributed timeline. BRING ME BACK is very unique, original, scary

    Such a long build up for an ending that just didn’t deliver for me. Not as good as behind closed doors.
  • Great read!

    I loved the book, I finished it in less then a day. It kept me on the edge of my seat and it was almost as if every time I guessed what the ending would be, the author would prove me wrong. It was definitely a page turner and I recommend for anyone who loves suspense.

    It’s been a while since a book kept my attention like this. Work didn’t matter , kids didn’t matter , chores didn’t matter only Layla much like poor Finn ha. I had my suspicions and I was right in the end but the writer keeps you doubting your own suspicions. I was sad when it ended , great book
