How well do you really know your spouse? This compelling, entertainging mystery thriller spins a tale centered around secrets held, dangerous deceptions, and covered up key life events, all circling around a disappeared or potentially kidnapped traveler.
Ariel, a newlywed, accompanies her new, younger husband John to Lisbon on his work trip, and one morning he totally disappears. No note, and cell phone and other key docs left in the hotel room. No witnesses to what happened as John left the hotel. But local Portugal police view as well as the CIA view Ariel’s concerns as premature and unfounded.
Turns out that both Ariel and John have past life events that they’re not revealed to each other.
Next up: a $2 million ransom demand ultimately leads investigators to the bank account of the U.S. treasury secretary, whose past makes himself vulnerable to blackmail.
All this leads up to a surprising, totally worthy final reveal.
January LaVoy, as the audio narrator, delivers a compelling read that draws and keeps you in!
