Isabel Raine thought she had everything–a successful career, a supportive family, and a happy marriage to the man she loved. Then one ordinary morning, her husband, Marcus, picks up his briefcase, kisses her good-bye, and simply vanishes.

That day, all her calls to him go straight to voice mail; the messages she leaves at his office go unreturned, too. Panicking after finally receiving a call from his cell phone in which all she can hear is a man’s terrified cry, Isabel calls the police. But they aren’t interested. Men leave, they tell her. They leave all the time. Desperate to find her husband, Isabel races to his office. But instead of finding him, she finds herself in the middle of an FBI raid. Hours later, she awakens in the hospital with a severe concussion and a homicide detective by her bedside waiting to question her about Marcus Raine–the real Marcus Raine.  

Now the only thing Isabel knows for sure is that her husband of five years is gone. Where is he and who is he are questions no one seems able to answer. But Isabel will not rest until she discovers the truth about the man she loves, even if it means risking everything–including her own life. 

Bestselling author Lisa Unger takes us on a nightmarish journey from bustling, glamorous New York City to the murky, twisted streets of Prague, seeking the answer to one bone-chilling question: What if the man you love, the one sleeping beside you, is a stranger?

    " Very good book, but got a little drawn out by the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacy | 1/23/2014

    " My least favorite of her books, but that could be because I read three in a row and that was a bit much. Next up: light, funny fluff please! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 12/23/2013

    " Good suspense novel. This is the second book that I have read by this author. Enjoy her writing style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellen | 11/25/2013

    " 3.5 stars. I listened to this one in the car. It was a fun mystery. Unfortunately the narrator's voice got on my nerves occasionally. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 11/18/2013

    " Good suspense, but the plot was a little weak. Still not really sure of the motivation behind the action. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rhona Arthur | 11/2/2013

    " Pot boiler for the plane! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane Grimes | 10/24/2013

    " Great beach read! I couldn't put it down and the plot doesn't require a lot of deep thinking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elyse | 7/31/2013

    " Unger's books are very well written. All have twists and turns and psychological depth. It's a bit violent though... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rickie Sibley | 7/31/2013

    " A little slow getting going but okay read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Eleanor Thompson | 7/28/2013

    " A convoluted rambling mess...the author seemed to be writing 2 or 3 different novels all at once and they were all equally bad. I found myself not caring about any of the characters but rather thinking that for supposedly 'smart' people they were sure doing stupid things. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol Delatorre | 2/23/2013

    " Great story. Best of hers that I have read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynda | 2/4/2013

    " This was a pretty good book. The mysterious disappearance of writer Isobel Raines' husband leads to more mystery and violence than she had ever expected. It is a fast reading story with a few side plots regarding Isobel's family. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 10/18/2012

    " This book felt a little confused to me - it's trying to be both a thriller and a serious character study, with the result that the characters seem overanalyzed and the plotting is too slow to be exciting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dianna | 7/29/2012

    " More like 4 1/2 stars. Really great. Very twisty and intense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherri | 7/6/2012

    " While I liked the book, I had a hard time feeling very sympathetic for the lead character. She didn't seem as developed in the book as some of the other characters, such as her sister. Still a good beach read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 kat | 11/15/2011

    " this was just ok. slow start, takes awhile to draw you in. her other books -- blackout & darkness my old friend -- are much more finely crafted. "

    " Engaging and fast-paced. Looking forward to reading her others! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne | 3/14/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 1/23/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Darcy | 1/17/2011

    " This book was just ok. I really enjoyed her latest book, "Fragile," but this one wasn't as good. It was a quick read and had some entertainment value, but not an amazing book. "

    " I really enjoyed this book. The author kept me interested the entire time. I didn't want to put it down. At times, all the drama/tragedies that kept happening seemed a bit too much. But what a suspenseful read! "
