Summary

A woman vanishes from a Texas town. Did she simply run off, or is something darker at play?

When Patrick Dielman shows up at Detective Jo Larsen's desk insisting that his wife, Jenny, is missing, Jo wonders if it's a case of a bored housewife running away.

But as she digs deeper into Jenny's life, Jo learns that Dielman keeps a stranglehold on the family finances, down to the last nickel, and that Jenny's first marriage dissolved following the death of her young son. By all accounts - including her doctor's - she never recovered from the loss. Between a controlling husband, a tragic past, and a callous ex-husband, Jo can't be sure if she should suspect foul play or accept that the woman may have wanted to disappear.

For Jo, whose own demons are shadowing her every step, finding Jenny becomes more than the typical protect-and-serve.

Don't listen to the audible

The story was mediocre, but the audible was terrible. There were times I couldn't even stay focused on the story because the narrator was so awkward sounding. I honestly can't even rate the book because I feel the narration was so bad it made me HATE the book!!!

Horrible narrator

Decent story but this is the worst narrator I've ever listened to. Her reading was choppy and hesitant and there was very little fluctuation in character voices. At times it took a couple sentences before you knew which character was talking.

Enjoyable Audiobook

Overall this was a good crime drama. However, it was a bit slow, rambling, and somewhat predictable. Not a must listen, but if you have a long drive, it's a good companion

So So Crime Mystery

Nothing stood out in this book. I didn't really enjoy the characters and the excessive personal life drama at every turn was quite annoying. I guessed right on the killer from the moment they were introduced and nothing was unexpected in this one.

I liked it!

I'll admit, I didn't see it coming. The story held me to end-always a good start. I wish the characters had been more fleshed out; I saw them in my mind as kind of fuzzy. This narrator did an adequate job, but were I to read another of the author's books I would hope for a narrator with a wider range of voices. I wouldn't let it stop me though, it wasn't annoying. I did enjoy the book very much.

Mixed feelings

This is the first book I read by this author, and probably won't be my last. While I enjoyed the story, I found some of the characters to be a bit dramatic. There are some parts of the story that's filled with unnecessary details that instead of keeping you interested you just want to fast forward. But aside from that, i loved how the story develops, how the author paints this different pictures of the characters that leaves you wondering who did because they all look guilty.

Very good.

I didn't want to stop until it was over. I had to know what was next.

Engaging Mystery with a Good Payoff

This is one of the better mysteries I've listened to in a while. So many authors hold your interest all the way through only to disappoint you in the end. This one, however, had some good twists and turns and I was satisfied with the ending. Definitely worth a listen.

Slight suspense with good story line.

Kept me wondering who was the murderer with lots of hints towards numerous characters. Narrator was super breathy and kind of annoying.
