"[Karissa] Vacker switches easily between the higher female voices and the lower male voices, creating recognizable and believable characters.... Listeners will enjoy a gripping and twisty story." (AudioFile on Earphones Award winner A Flicker in the Dark)
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 definitely recommend this one!
The story itself has some raw and real moments about mental health. Stacy Willingham included a wonderful author's note on why she chose to write the story the way she did and attached some excellent mental health links and phone numbers.
Throughout the story, the plot thickens, making the reader's mind twist back and forth about who could have taken or hurt Mason and why.
The ending was a bit of a surprise and unexpected. How I imagined the story to play out in my head differed from what actually happened. It was nice to be given a surprise/shock when reading a book, as that does not often happen for me.
I highly recommend either of Stacy Willingham's books.
As the story progresses the reader learns that Ben had two previous wives, who both died, and that Ben had not wanted children. Isabel is determined to find out what happened to Mason, and eventually what happened to Mason is revealed, and he and Isabel are reunited.
I found this book to be a fast paced, although sometimes difficult, read.
If you’re a fan of , unlikable character’s and slow-burn thrillers with lots of twists, hang on because you’re in for one heck of a ride with Stacy Willingham’s latest book, release. Told in two timelines Louisiana 1999, and Savannah Georgia Present. The plot centers on soon to be divorced and very sleep deprived mom, Isabelle Drake, who’s 18-month-old son Mason disappeared from his crib in the middle of the night one year ago. With no leads or clues as to what happened to Mason, Isabelle has never given up on finding her son, and is currently being interviewed on a true crime podcast by a mysterious podcaster looking to lay to rest something of his own. I tried to guess whodunnit but gave up as NOTHING is as it appears to be. With mysterious deaths, sleepwalking, a multitude of lies from a trusted person, and a shocking reveal at the end, this was a completely addictive read start to finish.
As Isabelle is unable to sleep after her young son was taken in the middle of the night, her narration is unreliable as even she questions her sanity. Now that Mason's missing person case has gone cold one year later, Izzy has taken it upon herself to solve the crime, in a state of utter desperation.
In a word, this book is incredible. Similar to The Push, but instead of pointing the finger elsewhere, the finger firmly points at oneself. It's sleep deprivation, it's a mother’s guilt and it's the tangled mess of thoughts that you can find yourself in during the hours when the rest of the world seems to be asleep.
I'm finding it difficult to say exactly what I loved, because I feel that it wouldn't take much to steer a reader one way or another, and I think it's better to go in without preconceived notions of this plot! But know that I was blown away by every aspect of this novel.
Also know that there was twist upon twist upon twist that kept blowing my mind, leading me to the book's completion. I've never read a thriller where all the loose ends were tied up so nicely, and the many layers, and unique aspects so well done. The epilogue itself brought up so many moral questions, that as a reader I had already wondered; this was such a distinct conclusion, which I found would lend itself into fantastic book club discussions.
In the author's note, the "why" behind this novel is explained, which is an incredibly fascinating and a brilliant basis for a book. Willingham delves into areas of motherhood so well within this novel, statements that I connected and related to, that I would have never guessed that she is yet a mother herself.
I'm just going to go ahead and say it, this thriller ranks up there with the likes of Gone Girl (which is the top tier thriller that I compare all others to). You can bet I'll be reading everything Willingham writes, including A Flicker In The Dark, which was published last year.
Thank you NetGalley, St. Martin's Press and Minotaur Books for the complimentary copy to read and review.

What courage it took to tackle such complex issues . Highly recommended took a while to hook me in but when it did it was so compelling. Cant wait for the next novel. Keep up the good work .
The book was so easy to read… not bogged down by sub-plots - and meaningless flashbacks. Just Now and Then
