David Rosenfelt

Everything is going right for magazine writer Richard Kilmer. His girlfriend, the beautiful Jennifer Ryan, has agreed to marry him. The happy couple celebrates with a romantic drive up to Kendrick Falls. Even as dark clouds begin to gather, Jen and Richard press on.

The freak storm sends Richard careening off the road and throws Jen from the vehicle. Richard seems to be fine, but he can't find Jen anywhere neither can the town's police. The storm has disappeared and with it every trace of the future Mrs. Kilmer.

Richard remembers her so vividly, but no one he knows can confirm that Jen ever existed. Could he be crazy? Did he dream her up? After weeks of nightmares, therapy, and unanswered questions, his life is still in pieces. But just as Richard begins to completely unravel, so do the secrets behind Jen's disappearance

Reviews

Edgar and Shamus award nominee Rosenfelt, author of the Andy Carpenter series, presents his third stand-alone novel, following Down to the Wire (2010), also available from Listen & Live Audio. Richard Kilmer is a journalist on the trail of a potential Pulitzer Prize-winning story when Jen enters his life, and everything changes. Then she suddenly disappears without a trace, and his search for answers leads him to uncover a diabolical plot to create and sell a mind-control device to the highest bidder. In this thriller that will keep listeners guessing, the characters are well crafted, and a trail of creative red herrings moves the story toward its Hollywood-esque ending. Stage actor Chris Ensweiler reads with feeling, providing an excellent range of voice and emotion. Strongly recommended for fans of mysteries and thrillers.
