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.

Met the author who is better than the book

What did you love best about No Show?

The concept. Grabbed me from the beginning. The author said it really happened to him when he arrived in USA -- not sinister but due to a flat tire, so he built the plot on that. Good idea. And the author is a brain scientist also like in the book.


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

A little more satisfying result on the mystery. But, that's just me. & I would have liked better character building on the wife. I would have liked her to have better qualities; and I realize he didn't know her that well, & that was part of the plot & mystery with a rush-into marriage, two people from different countries, etc. And it keep me delving into the book for find out more about her.


What does Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He detracted in one area. He made several grown men have the cartoon Calif Surfer voice. "Hey dude, surfs up, hey that's gnarly dude." Come on....


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The beginning was great. Arriving in USA. No show on the wife meeting him at the airport. Where is she? Good start. You could picture it all, and empathize. & when being locked in the ..... I could feel it.


Any additional comments?

I liked the author so well, that I bought many of his books. We shall see.
