Amazon:  Death and deception. After a whirlwind romance, Liam and Rebecca marry, knowing almost nothing of each other's backgrounds. Only months later, on an afternoon shopping trip to a mall in the Buffalo, New York, suburb of Cheektowaga, Rebecca vanishes, seemingly abducted. Or did she make herself disappear? Was the marriage a sham? Was Liam a dupe? This is a novel of high crimes and dark shadows, involving the immensely profitable drug industry in which exclusive access to the market for a medication can mean billions of dollars, and holding on to that exclusivity might lead to lies, deceit, corruption, payoffs, and even murder.

Kritters Thoughts:  A who dun it without a murder, but with just as many twists and turns.  Liam quickly marries a woman he meets at a medical conference by the name of Rebecca.  For awhile the reader is a little lost as Rebecca is "kidnapped" and we are along for the ride with Liam trying to find his new wife.  

As I am not a spoiler, this book took some great turns that made it more than I thought it would be about half way through it all.  Because of these turns, I would recommend this book to readers of the who dun it genre, even though there isn't quite a murder to investigate, just a missing or so we think missing woman.  I thought the author was quite imaginative where he took the story, thumbs up for the creative twists.

Reading this book in the first week of being married on my honeymoon was ironically funny because Liam and Rebecca had only been married for a bit before she went missing, although my hubby knows a lot more about me than Liam knew of Rebecca.   

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
