Escape - or not? - from a dysfunctional relationship
“You did what?”
Jack’s announcement that he’d spent their savings to buy himself a new truck pushed Emma to the breaking point. Explaining her frustration to Jack was useless. He never understood anything except his own point of view. Her only option to extricate herself from their failing relationship was to leave and relegate Jack to her past. Unfortunately, the past doesn’t always stay in the past.
For three days after Emma’s disappearance, Jack’s reaction vacillates. After the news reported a serial killer on the loose, Jack fears that she might be another of the killer’s victims and rushes to the police to report her missing.
As detectives investigate the case, Jack’s erratic behavior leads them to suspect that Jack, not a serial killer, is guilty of foul play.
