Book Rewind Review: The Disappearance of Sloane Sullivan by Gia Cribbs

This year I vowed to read more backlist books, especially review titles. I picked up The Disappearance of Sloane Sullivan at the recommendation of friend and author, Carrie Ann Dirisio. It sat far too long on my shelf and I’m here to tell YOU why you should not repeat my mistakes. Come check out my 5 star review below!

No one wants me to tell you about the disappearance of Sloane Sullivan.

Not the lawyers or the cops. Not her friends or family. Not even the boy who loved her more than anyone. And most certainly not the United States Marshals Service. You know, the people who run the witness protection program or, as it’s officially called, the Witness Security Program? Yeah, the WITSEC folks definitely don’t want me talking to you.

But I don’t care. I have to tell someone.

If I don’t, you’ll never know how completely wrong things can go. How a single decision can change everything. How, when it really comes down to it, you can’t trust anyone. Not even yourself. You have to understand, so it won’t happen to you next. Because you never know when the person sitting next to you isn’t who they claim to be...and because there are worse things than disappearing.



Review

Carrie Ann DiRisio calls The Disappearance of Sloane Sullivan “Pretty in Pink meets The Sopranos” and FOR REAL is she right. Wow.

Probably the most disappointing part of this book is the fact that it took me more than a year to read it after it landed on my radar. I HAVE REGRETS. This is a stunning thriller that builds up all the tension and releases it quickly through the end.

When Sloane and her father witness a murder between two rival mob families, they’re forced into Witness Protection. Now on her 19th alias, Sloane and her handler, Mark, have a plan for her to exit WitSec and move on with their lives.

That is, until Sloane comes face to face with her childhood best friend, who after 12 years has not forgotten her.

The first 75% of the book is a slow build toward the big action. The whole time you’re waiting for the other shoe to drop. For Sloane’s plans to fall apart. For her 20th alias to arise and set her back. 

The last 25% is absolutely pack with thrills and twists. You may think you know what’s coming and every time BAM – you’re thrown off course. This is a one sitting read you won’t soon forget!
