"No Show," by Simon Wood

Looking for a great thriller? Check this one out from acclaimed author Simon Wood!

No Show, by Simon Wood

"The writer did not insult my intelligence by going into long descriptions of every obvious encounter or observation made by the characters. He skips the garbage and gives you a story that will keep you engaged from the very beginning until the final chapter. And even when I was certain I had figured out who, what and why - I was wrong. Happily and delightfully stumped. There is plenty of suspense, but very little gore, minimal violence, unnecessary sexual encounters or similar tools used by many writers to keep the reader engaged. My basic philosophy - tell me a story! And Simon Wood has done that in spades. If you want an enjoyable reading experience to take to the beach, curl up on your couch, or ride the subway, than I believe you will be very happy with this book." -- Amazon reviewer

Englishman Terry Sheffield has just arrived in San Francisco to start his new life with Sarah, the investigative journalist he married after a transatlantic love affair. But Sarah never shows up at the airport…
When Terry reports his wife as missing, the police chalk it up to a new bride with cold feet. Then one murdered woman after another turns up, all with something in common: they had exposed scandals just before their deaths…and their names appear on a list that Sarah composed. As a journalist, Sarah’s exposed her share of scandals, and Terry realizes that she’s not missing—she’s on the run.
To find her before the killer does, Terry must explore the dark recesses of his new homeland and rely on the help of some new friends. But as his search brings him closer to finding Sarah, Terry realizes she’s very different from the woman he thought he married.
