This book is the horrific account of a young woman’s kidnapping, torture, multiple rapes, and imprisonment by a husband and wife. This really happened and the Author of the book was the prosecutor assigned to the case. Colleen/K’s tragic story is told in the third person and bounce back and forth between the trial and her time spent locked in the box. Like other reviewers, I didn’t feel it was necessary to know what was happening in the Prosecutor’s personal life.

Received from Goodreads first reads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.

This book is actually the second in a series (The Reeve LeClaire series) but works as a stand alone book. This book has definitely peeked my interest and I will be going back and reading the first book featuring Reeve LeClaire.

What Doesn’t Kill her is a Psychological thriller, In short, when Reeve was 12 years old she was kidnapped and held captive for 4 years by Daryl Wayne Flint. When the book opens she is a college student going about her life when her former kidnapper escapes from a forensic unit of a psychiatric hospital.

She is soon drawn into the search for her former captor as the story progresses. I found the book to be very well thought out. The characters were vivid and believable.

I definitely enjoyed this book and would definitely read more by this Author.
