My Wife Is Missing – a tense, fast-paced domestic thriller that will keep you guessing.
Natalie and Michael Hart’s marriage is in crisis. Counseling isn't helping much. Natalie suffers from insomnia which is causing anxiety and paranoia. With two children, she also has a stressful job. Michael has redirected his focus to working out at the gym. He seeks intimacy and may have gone outside the marriage to find it. Natalie recommends they take a family trip to New York City. They arrive at their hotel and Michael goes out to get pizza. When he returns to their room, Natalie and the children are missing. Their luggage is gone. Michael and a NYC detective go searching for them. First, he fears they have been kidnapped but it appears Natalie has run away. But why? Natalie has discovered something about Michael that has her so afraid that she needs to escape to protect herself and her children. Is her fear real or part of her paranoia?
My Wife Is Missing is told by two unreliable narrators. And both Natalie and Michael's stories seem truthful. Michael loves his wife and is desperate to find his family. Natalie believes she has proof that Michael is not the man she thought he was. Author D.J. Palmer does an excellent job creating lots of suspense as the story unfolds and we learn about shocking events that took place in the past and a series of twisty revelations in the present. It’s a heck of a ride. Hop on board, buckle up and enjoy it.
