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.

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?
Weak storyline, terrible English accent in narration, Oscar character sounds ten years old. Won't read another book by this author.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
It's fast story that keeps you guessing made this so enjoyable. I loved the two main characters Terry and his new friend Oscar.
What other book might you compare No Show to, and why?
I can't compare to any book in particular. I had never heard of this writer but his style is like Linwood Barclay and Harlen Coben.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
I like the scene at the start when Terry's new wife did not turn up at the airport. From then on I was gripped.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes I listened it 2 days and if maybe I was lucky enough to be on a long flight and had no other distractions I would not have stopped from start to finish.
Any additional comments?
I have more Simon Wood books in my wish list and hope they are as good as this one.
