For months Beth Murphy has been meticulously planning her escape from her violent husband. She lays a trail westward and then disappears east with a new look and new name. She’s given her escape plan significant thought. Even the smallest of slip-ups and her husband will find her and kill her. Meanwhile, a couple hundred miles away, Jeffrey Hardison returns home from a work trip to find his wife Sabine is missing. Her abandoned car is the only evidence the police have, and all signs point to foul play. As the police search for leads, the case becomes more and more convoluted. Sabine’s carefully laid plans for her future indicate trouble at home, and a husband who would be better off with her gone. Where is Sabine? And who is Beth? The only thing that’s certain is that one of them is lying.
