    Enthralling Read

    The Other People by C.J. Tudor is a psychological thriller. First, let me thank NetGalley, Kathleen Quinlan at Random House Publishing - Ballantine, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.   My Synopsis:   (No major reveals, but if concerned, skip to My Opinions) Gabe has been searching for his daughter for the past three years.  On the night she went missing, he swears he saw her in the back of a rusty old car with a lot of bumper stickers.  No one believed him.  He gave up everything - his home, his job, his life, but he has not given up hope.  He drives up and down the highway every night, looking for that car.   He sleeps in his van, and eats in service stations along the way. Katie is a waitress in one of the service stations that Gabe often visits.  She thinks of him as the "thin man".  She commiserates with his loss.  She knows what it means to lose someone you love. Fran and Alice also use that highway.  They are running.  Fran knows that if they are found, they are dead. Fran knows what happened to Gabe's wife and daughter. But Gabe will not stop looking, and when he starts to find evidence of a cover-up, everyone's life is in danger. My Opinions:   This is definitely the best novel that CJ Tudor has written to date.  I definitely enjoyed her other two books, but felt that they had both been Stephen King adaptations.  This one was truly her own creation, and it was wonderful.  She has found her own voice, and it is good! As always, the writing is good and the pace quick.  The plot was great, with just a touch of the supernatural.  Note that if you aren't a fan of that, it certainly is not a major part of the book.  It was just enough to keep things a little off balance. The story is told from different points of view, and that way the story unfolds at a good and natural pace.  It is about the love of a mother for her daughter.  It is about a father who is trying to find his daughter, and his undying devotion and determination, even when no one else believes him.  It is also about revenge, and the premise of "an eye for an eye" mentality that leads some into making decisions without thinking of the consequences.  It is about making very human errors, and paying the price, and it is about the secrets that everyone keeps. The characters were a mixed bag of caring and creepy, and down right sinister.  They were all deep enough to feel "real". This was a really intriguing, enthralling read.  It wasn't scary, but it was a little creepy, and definitely one I didn't want to put down. I am highly recommending this one!
