When a woman disappears with her two children, one husband will do anything to find them–even confront the secrets of his own past–in D. J. Palmer’s My Wife Is Missing, a twisty thriller from the author of The New Husband…
Michael is worried about his wife, Natalie. Her insomnia is getting worse. She isn’t sleeping at all. He thinks she’s paranoid and she thinks he is sleeping with one of her co-workers.
When said co-worker turns up dead, Natalie can barely function. She is sure her husband has killed the woman. On a trip to New York, Natalie suggests Michael run out for pizza. When he returns she and the children are gone.
Questioned by the police and released, Michael sets out to find his family only to have the detective on the case decide to ride along. Michael is pretty sure the guy thinks he has something to do with what is going on and Michael feels guilty for something he may or may not have done years ago.
Through Natalies’ voice, we hear about their past. How they met, and about his long-dead family. A past he never speaks about. Which now sounds suspicious.
I am not giving anything away here. If you are a fan of Palmer’s then you know you are going to have a long night trying to untie all the twists and turns of this excellent read!
