My Wife is Missing Review

My Wife is Missing Review

Title: My Wife is Missing
Author: DJ Palmer
Style: Thriller
Rating: 5/5

A fast paced, cat mouse chase that keeps the reader at the edge of their seat the entire time.  Michael and Natalie decide to take a family vacation in New York but when Michael comes back from picking up a pizza he finds his family is missing. He's on pins and needles trying to figure out where they went and what happened to them.

The story has dual timelines and perspectives. In this case the reader sees the past perspective from Natalie's point of view only. This helps the story unfold in a unique way because we slowly begin to understand Natalie's motives. The dual perspectives leave the reader constantly questioning which narrator to trust.  My head was spinning trying to figure out what was going on.

My Wife is Missing is suspenseful, twisty, unpredictable, fast paced and unputdownable.  I highly recommend it.

Thank you St Martin's Press and NetGalley for the e-arc.  My Wife is Missing publishes May 10th.
