The truth isn’t what it seems in this stirring novel of suspense.
After presenting a major scientific breakthrough to a rapt audience across the country, renowned astronomer Sarah Mayfield returns home to a disturbing discovery. Her husband, Ben, a Los Angeles restaurateur, has disappeared, leaving behind an unexplained bank deposit of a million dollars, a loaded Glock in the nightstand, and a video security system that’s been wiped clean. The only answers their son, Zack, can offer are the last words his father said to him: keep the doors locked and set the alarm.
Sarah’s marriage was more troubled than anyone suspected, but now she is afraid that her husband’s recent past could be darker than she dares to admit. Suspecting that nothing about Ben’s vanishing is what it seems, Sarah must delve into the space between old memories, newfound fears, and misleading clues to piece together the mystery of her husband’s disappearance—and find what she hopes in her heart is the truth.
FIVE STARS ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️ for The Space Between! Dete Meserve intricately weaves together a murder mystery that will have readers frantically turning pages until the very end!
I felt an instant bond with the characters and found myself rooting for Sarah on her journey and realization that her husband was not who she thought he was. Dete Meserve slowly and purposefully allows readers to learn just enough details about a life changing mystery to be captivated. This is a story that caused many mixed emotions as the plot unraveled and I realized that some characters aren’t who you thought they were. Sarah’s detailed account of her relationship with Ben made the murder he is accused of seem impossible. Even though their marriage seemed to be slipping from their grasps, Sarah never believed what others told her about her husband.
Do all the clues and encrypted messages lead Sarah to believe that Ben harbored unbelievable secrets that she knew nothing about… or is Sarah looking at clues in the wrong places from the wrong people? Sarah is determined to interpret the evidence in order to get to the bottom of this crazy murder mystery!
“No astronomer, no scientist, just accepts the evidence. The best scientists are those who understand the limitations of the evidence. It’s our job to challenge it. The most important discoveries are made when we question evidence and consider new possibilities.”P. 177
