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.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "This gripping standalone from McBride (Not a Chance in Helen and two other Helen Evans mysteries) successfully entwines the story of troubled Jenny Dielman with that of Jo Larsen, a serious and methodical police detective who investigates Dielman's sudden and inexplicable disappearance. Both women are haunted by their difficult and traumatic pasts, and both have left the big-city gloss of Dallas for the apparent simplicity and tranquility of the small town of Plainfield, Tex. But their change of location has not, as the women hoped, brought about a resolution to their respective problems. Both Dielman and Larsen have begun treatment with psychologists. Excerpts from Dielman's diary, which her therapist suggested she keep, heighten the suspense. Analyzing the crimes perpetrated against the missing woman helps Larsen to find the strength to examine her own inner demons. A suspicious death, a murder, and submerged passions all figure in this tale of twisted love and redemption. Agent: Christina Hogrebe, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Sept.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
