All the Dangerous Things

Following up her instant New York Times bestseller, A Flicker in the Dark, Stacy Willingham delivers a totally gripping thriller about a desperate mother with a troubled past in All the Dangerous Things.


One year ago, Isabelle Drake's life changed forever: her toddler son, Mason, was taken out of his crib in the middle of the night while she and her husband were asleep in the next room. With little evidence and few leads for the police to chase, the case quickly went cold. However, Isabelle cannot rest until Mason is returned to her—literally.


Except for the occasional catnap or small blackout where she loses track of time, she hasn’t slept in a year.


Isabelle's entire existence now revolves around finding him, but she knows she can’t go on this way forever. In hopes of jarring loose a new witness or buried clue, she agrees to be interviewed by a true-crime podcaster—but his interest in Isabelle's past makes her nervous. His incessant questioning paired with her severe insomnia has brought up uncomfortable memories from her own childhood, making Isabelle start to doubt her recollection of the night of Mason’s disappearance, as well as second-guess who she can trust... including herself. But she is determined to figure out the truth no matter where it leads.

I was completely enthralled by this book. It’s been a while since I read a good thriller and this book was phenomenal. I highly recommend it and would gladly read it.

Another twisted book by Willingham, but I enjoyed it. A mother narrates her life after her child goes missing in the night. It's been a year and she can't handle things. She wants to continue investigating his many people she's not able to trust, so who can she trust? A quick read for me, if you like a crime story.

This book didn't hold my attention like most mystery or thriller novels do. I could vaguely suspect where it was heading, so I didn't really care if I finished it or not.
