Darby Kane thrills with this twisty domestic suspense novel that asks one central question: shouldn't a dead husband stay dead?

Lila Ridgefield lives in an idyllic college town, but not everything is what it seems. Lila isn’t what she seems.

A student vanished months ago. Now, Lila’s husband, Aaron, is also missing. At first these cases are treated as horrible coincidences until it’s discovered the student is really the third of three unexplained disappearances over the last few years. The police are desperate to find the connection, if there even is one. Little do they know they might be stumbling over only part of the truth….

With the small town in an uproar, everyone is worried about the whereabouts of their beloved high school teacher. Everyone except Lila, his wife. She’s definitely confused about her missing husband but only because she was the last person to see his body, and now it’s gone.

  • Best Book Read in a long time!

    By BogeyOtis11
    I love suspense books and this was one of the best ones I have read in a long time! Twist and turns everywhere and kept you guessing till the end. If you loved the book Gone Girl this is a even better and will not disappoint! I give it total 5 stars all the way!
  • Yes, read this!

    I never give 5 stars because I’m always waiting for the one that actually deserves it. Here it is. I loved this book from beginning to end. I’m quite picky about thrillers and I thought this one was action packed! Much praise for this author and her cohorts! A definite must read! No sponsor here, nothing but a lady who loves to read! Dig in!!

  • Good

    By NurseReader
    This was pretty good, entertaining but very predictable towards the middle.
  • Twisty mystery

    By Abercrombie8765
    A debut thriller from a romance writer. Not a bad start to a new genre. Lila is no longer content in her marriage. Her husband is controlling and now he is missing. It isn’t like Aaron to skip work without notifying anyone. Ginny, the detective assigned to the missing person’s case, is trying hard to find out what happened. The book pays a little homage to Gone Girl, and while I didn’t really like any of the characters, I didn’t despise them. As the facts slowly unwound, I was surprised more than once and I’m the one who usually figures out the mystery. A solid twisty mystery that I’d highly recommend.
