When a woman is missing, it’s often the husband who is the prime suspect in the disappearance. Some 2,300 women go missing each day, and less than 5% of them are victims of kidnapping by a stranger.
J.J. Slate’s Missing Wives, Missing Lives is a chilling true-crime narrative of 30 cases of wives who remain missing and whose husbands are suspected of having a hand in their disappearance, and presumed murder. Some of the cases in this book go back to the 1970s, and in some, authorities have even managed to indict and convict the husband of murder, despite having no corpse. Each case, though, is a story of a family that continues to seek answers, and will chill you to your marrow.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review. I give it four stars.
