  1. Laura Rose

    In this story, Barry Finlay has written about a man who wakes up one morning to find his wife gone, with no message or clue as to where she went. The reader gets a real sense of the main character in the opening pages of the book. The action in this tale builds slowly, but the ending is surprising and explosive. I recommend this book to others who like this genre. Trevor Finlay’s narration is good and adds a layer of entertainment to the story. I requested this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed and have voluntarily left this review.

    Narrated by Trevor Finlay

    I received a copy of the book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Mason and Sami Seaforth have the outward appearance of the perfect, happily married couple. Having been married for several year and celebrating yet another joyous wedding anniversary, they couldn’t be happier. A successful couple at both work and in the home, their path in life settled before them, simple and content.
    On the morning after their anniversary celebration, Mason wakes up earlier than ususal to find the other side of the bed vacant and no immediate sign of Sami. Thinking she had gone to grab a drink or maybe stretch her legs, he rises to join her but after several hours pass with still no news of and being totally out of the ordinary, he can’t help the rising panic that begins to gather in the pit of his stomach.
    What follows is a tale of crime and intrigue which I was looking forward to and once started I was not disappointed. Barry Finlay has written a book with a desire for justice and describes shrewdly Mason’s primary change from his ignorance at the start through to the end, passing through unfairness, injustice, tyranny and finally justice. Readers will be drawn to the intrigue of solving the puzzle and the securityof seeing justice done in the end.

    In this well written crime novel there are several victims in one way or another with the protagonist actively trying to solve the crime or enigma, to outmaneuver the antagonist and to expose them as the criminal that they are – the big scene that as a reader we eagerly await.
    The Vanishing Wife lays this out wonderfully, displaying cunning and brilliance which must be praised.
    The narrator, Trevor Finlay, is plausible and valuable audibly, presenting the novel in a logical and believable manner, with a compelling tone that reveals believable tension and emotion, grounding the reader with gut reactions and dialogue.

    I rate The Vanishing Wife 5 out of 5 stars.
