Family ties run deep. Family secrets run deeper.
Perfect wife. Doting mom. Jennifer Griffin was loved by everyone, including the women in her suburban-neighborhood book club. Their meetings sometimes went late, but Jenn always came home.
Until that night.
When Greg Griffin wakes to find his wife is not in bed, his blood runs cold. Her book club friends say Jenn left for home hours ago. But she’s missing, so he calls the police. Greg tells detectives their marriage is good, but his alibi is razor-thin. With their young son away at a sleepover, Greg had all night to commit a crime. And there are scrapes on his hands… This sets into motion an avalanche of events that place Greg under suspicion and yet don’t seem to lead to what happened to Jennifer at all.
Investigators discover Jenn has troubling secrets, but she isn’t the only one. With the threads of their picture-perfect life unraveling, Greg is forced to confront the lies that hold their marriage together—and a dark past that refuses to stay buried.
A new interesting psychological thriller with the missing mother and wife trope that is worth checking out.
