A woman learns that her husband has been living a dark secret life she could never have imagined
An anniversary cruise for Frank and Helen is perfect, until the unthinkable happens and Frank disappears. Helen does everything to find her husband, but is distraught to be unable to and returns home.
After spending the next few months searching, Helen hears from someone who has news of her husband. But not the news she hoped for: Helen learns that Frank was leading a double life. It becomes increasingly apparent that the man she married had a dark side Helen never could have imagined. Only Suzanne Vermeer, the best-selling mystery writer on the Netherlands, could spin this story with such suspense.

A Chet and Bernie Mystery
Aug 5 2014
In the seventh book in the brilliant
New York Times
bestselling mystery series, canine narrator Chet and P.I. Bernie journey to Washington, DC, and the dog-eat-dog world of our nation’s capital.
Stephen King has called Chet “a canine Sam Spade full of joie de vivre.” Robert B. Parker dubbed Spencer Quinn’s writing “major league prose.” Now the beloved team returns in another suspenseful novel that finds Chet sniffing around the capital city and using his street smarts to uncover a devilish plot.
Chet and Bernie pay a visit to Bernie’s girlfriend, Suzie Sanchez, a crack reporter living in far-off Washington, DC. She’s working on a big story she can’t talk about, but when her source, a mysterious Brit with possible intelligence connections, runs into trouble of the worst kind, Bernie suddenly finds himself under arrest.
Meanwhile Chet gets to know a powerful DC operative who may or may not have the goods on an ambitious politician. Soon Chet and Bernie are sucked into an international conspiracy, battling unfamiliar forces under the blinking red eyes of a strange bird that Chet notices from the get-go but seems to have slipped by everybody else. Most menacing of all is Barnum, a guinea pig with the fate of the nation in his tiny paws.
As Harry Truman famously quipped, “If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.” Too bad he didn’t get to meet Chet!
