After a whirlwind romance, Liam and Rebecca marry, knowing almost nothing of each other's backgrounds. Only months later, on an afternoon shopping trip to a mall in the Buffalo, New York, suburb of Cheektowaga, Rebecca vanishes, seemingly abducted. Or did she make herself disappear? Was the marriage a sham? Was Liam a dupe? This is a novel of high crimes and dark shadows, involving the immensely profitable drug industry in which exclusive access to the market for a medication can mean billions of dollars, and holding on to that exclusivity might lead to lies, deceit, corruption, payoffs, and even murder.

Missing Rebecca has something for everyone.  Intrigue, action and many twists and turns.  It will keep you on your toes and keep you guessing.  What would you do if your wife of two months disappeared?  Would you regret not getting to know her better? Liam Peters has had a whirlwind romance with his new bride and now it seems she has been kidnapped from the mall...or has she left with a secret lover?

I liked the idea behind this book.  I always enjoy a story that keeps me guessing. I was drawn in right away because I wanted to know what happened to Rebecca.  However, I had a hard time keeping interest in the book at times. I felt like there were too many passages that felt like information dumps.  For me, it really disrupted the flow of the book.  I found myself skimming passages to move the story along.

Even though the book didn't work well for me, doesn't mean you shouldn't give it a shot.  It is an interesting story and I think most people will enjoy it.
