Narrator Kirby Heyborne begins this suspense novel when Nick comes home on his fifth anniversary to an empty house that shows signs of a struggle but no sign of his beautiful and clever wife, Amy. Heyborne creates a persona of passive detachment that begins to show signs of wear as the police investigation increasingly focuses on him. Weaving around Nick’s story, Julia Whelan dishes up Amy’s diaries, beginning when Amy and Nick first met, with a tone of the doting and loving wife who lives to please. Soon it’s clear that neither Amy nor Nick is to be taken at face value. The nuances heard in both Whelan’s and Heyborne’s narrations heighten the suspense and support the intricacies of the plot.
