Blurb from Amazon –
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…
(The synopsis is way too long so I wrote my own)! My Wife is Missing is another super twisty thriller from DJ Palmer. Michael and Natalie are on a family a trip to NYC. Michael goes to get pizza then returns to their hotel room to find his family missing. According to some video footage, it appears they all left willingly.
Michael thinks he knows why she ran and is determined to find his family, without revealing any of his personal history to the cops or the detective who seems intent on following. Michael might have a dark past but Natalie has insomnia, and could be a danger to the kids….
My thoughts: I liked this one! I was never bored and DJ Palmer knows how to keep me guessing. I liked the alternating points of view between the husband and wife and having to guess which direction the book would go.
This was a fast paced read with plenty of surprising reveals, a dark history to unravel, and multiple characters to dislike. Palmer is also notorious for big old “wtf” endings.
I think if it wasn’t quite so much right at the end, I would have easily 5 starred this one. I had the same issue with The New Husband, although I want to stress that DJ Palmer is still an auto read author me at this point.
Definitely recommend this one for fans of twisty domestic thrillers that will keep you guessing til the end. The book is out 5/10!
