Publisher's Summary

Terry lands at San Francisco International Airport ready to start his new life with Sarah, the American journalist he married after a transatlantic love affair. But Sarah’s a no show. Convinced something terrible has happened, Terry reports Sarah’s disappearance to the sheriff, who shrugs it off as a case of a new bride with cold feet. But then dead women start turning up, all with two things in common: each victim had exposed a scandal just before her death...and all of their names appear on a list written by Sarah. As a journalist, Sarah has revealed her share of scandals, and Terry realizes that she’s not missing - she’s on the run.
As his American dream rapidly descends into a waking nightmare, Terry must plunge headlong into the dark recesses of his new homeland to find Sarah before the killer does. But as he nears the truth about Sarah, he realizes she’s very different from the woman he thought he married.

Great story

If you like Simon Wood's previous books you are sure to like this one. I think he is an
author who gets better and better with each book.
This story has a fairly simple premise, but Wood gets so much plot out of it, I was quite impressed. Terry is a likable character and you can't help but root for him the whole time. He may not always make the right choices, but his heart is in the right place.
The plot has many twists and turn and surprising moments. I kept thinking I had it figured out, but never quite did.
My only complaint is that this narrator had a sort of nebulous English accent for Terry. Sometimes he even sounded Australian. But other than that his reading was good.
There is mystery, intrigue and suspense in No Show. I recommend it.

Stranger in a strange land

This has got to be one of the most intoxicating reads I've ever read! The suspense is wide open all the way to the end. This author's work is so addicting. It's also creepy as in Stephen King creepy but way better. If you're into audiobooks, the narrator is absolutely wonderful. He does a great voice for all characters, also a great British accent.

Terry is just arriving to the US from England where he will now live with his American wife who is a reporter. However, Sarah fails to show up at the airport to pick him up. Imagine arriving in another country where you know no one. This is what Terry is facing. He takes transportation to where his new home is only to have to break into the house because he has no keys. There's no sign of his wife or that she has packed to go away. She's just simply disappeared. His neighbor sees him breaking in and calls the cops, which only makes matters worse. Adding to that, he has to wait to report her as missing. Meanwhile, he starts his new job because he doesn't want to get fired before he even gets started. His boss and her sidekick aren't the most pleasant people. They appear to be hiding something. Things only seem to get worse. Women start turning up dead with their tongues cut out. Terry can only wonder if this has anything to Sarah's disappearance. He doesn't know who to trust. He does make one friend so the two of them set out on an investigation of their own. Will he find Sarah? And if he does, will she still be alive?
