Although the story centres around Mia, it is told by three people - Eve (her mother) Gabe (the police officer) and Colin (the kidnapper). The book is then broken down further to before and after e.g Gabe After or Eve Before. At the start, it can be slightly confusing but you get into it as the story progresses. I couldn't wait to get to the end to find out what had really happened. Good debut novel from Mary Kubica.
