Isabel Raine thought she had everything–a successful career, a supportive family, and a happy marriage to the man she loved. Then one ordinary morning, her husband, Marcus, picks up his briefcase, kisses her good-bye, and simply vanishes.

That day, all her calls to him go straight to voice mail; the messages she leaves at his office go unreturned, too. Panicking after finally receiving a call from his cell phone in which all she can hear is a man’s terrified cry, Isabel calls the police. But they aren’t interested. Men leave, they tell her. They leave all the time. Desperate to find her husband, Isabel races to his office. But instead of finding him, she finds herself in the middle of an FBI raid. Hours later, she awakens in the hospital with a severe concussion and a homicide detective by her bedside waiting to question her about Marcus Raine–the real Marcus Raine.  

Now the only thing Isabel knows for sure is that her husband of five years is gone. Where is he and who is he are questions no one seems able to answer. But Isabel will not rest until she discovers the truth about the man she loves, even if it means risking everything–including her own life. 

Bestselling author Lisa Unger takes us on a nightmarish journey from bustling, glamorous New York City to the murky, twisted streets of Prague, seeking the answer to one bone-chilling question: What if the man you love, the one sleeping beside you, is a stranger?

Good read, fast paced and not her usual flavor. I enjoyed it just the same, although I think her later books had more well-rounded characters.

My first Unger book. Jury is still out. This was a lot like a foreign spy book which I usually avoid, but I was on vacation and this was what I had, so...

This is the first Lisa Unger book I have read. It is a real page turner, though the obsessive decisions Izzy made over and over in spite of the high risks to her family and those around her were over the top. All in all it was a good story and I look forward to checking out other books by this author.

I too was disappointed. The first half had promise but then it deteriorated into a bad movie. The protagonist's actions became more and more unbelievable as the story progressed. Ultimately, the resolution was weak. Do not recommend. By happenstance, recently read a Linwood Barclay book with a similar story (Never Look Back). It was better, but also not entirely satisfying.

When an incomprehensible crime is committed, it's human nature to ask "why?". When Isabelle Connolly finds out her missing husband is not who he claimed to be but is instead a liar, a thief and a murderer she sets out after him to try to find out why he stole her and her sister's money and murdered several people. Unfortunately, there are no answers. A bit of action but overall a forgettable thriller.

Loved the different perception each character had of each other. Each one thought they were one way, but either the author or the other characters give hints about their real selves.

A page-turner told from different character's points of view that keeps you reading.
