Goodreads Synopsis
Ten years ago, famous young singer Cadence Moore disappeared without a trace on a remote highway in western Pennsylvania. To this day her fate remains unknown. Was she kidnapped or murdered? Or did she simply run away in search of a new life, leaving behind the abuse and heartbreak that haunted her?

Charlie Marx, host of the popular conspiracy radio show “Underground Broadcast,” is obsessed with Cadence. Desperate to find her after deceiving his boss to save his job, he launches an investigation of his own, digging deep into the missing woman’s past and uncovering her darkest secrets. Working feverishly for weeks, he claims to have solved the mystery and promises to reveal Cadence’s fate at the end of a groundbreaking podcast series and live radio special.

But is it all a lie? As years of twisted details slowly unravel, Charlie races to solve the biggest mystery of the decade. If he succeeds, it will mean closure for Cadence. If he fails, his entire world will come crashing down live on air–and the truth may be lost forever.

My Take
This was such a roller-coaster of a book. George Sterner has managed to bring the thrill & rush of a podcast to the pages of a book. The book is written in part in a podcast format, which is written so well and the narration is amazing.

Solving Cadence Moore is a Mystery as it is a Thriller. It’s how the plot takes us on an investigative journey, one that is filled with anger, shock and so much sadness as the story unfolds.

I quite liked the characters. Everyone had a role to play and they did it so well. I was heavily invested.

“This is the place where we lift the curtain of accepted reality, and look deeper…down into the depths of the stories that permeate our consciousness.”

In as much as I loved this book, the pacing is a bit off. It starts out slow, picks up pace, slows down in the middle, then rushes through the ending. I think that was my only issue with the book, and if you can overlook that, you’ll definitely enjoy it as well.

Solving Cadence Moore is a riveting book, filled with mind games and a lot of plot twists that will keep you at the edge of your seat. If you are a fan of true crime, this one is for you. I highly recommend.

Recommend a Thriller you recently enjoyed.
