Felix Kendall disappears one day leaving his wife, Kate, to discover that her mild-mannered, accountant husband has, in fact, been involved in money laundering. Suddenly everything Kate had has gone – her husband, her money, her home. We follow Kate as she learns to adjust to life without Felix, providing for her family and moving on, that is if Felix has really gone forever. An entertaining read.

The Man Who Disappeared Synopsis

What would you do if, out of the blue, your husband disappeared and you found out he was a suspected criminal? When reliable, respectable Felix Kendall vanishes, his wife Kate is left reeling. As she and their children cope with the shocking impact on their comfortable lives, Kate realises that, if Felix is guilty, she never truly knew the man she loved. But as she faces the possibility that he might not return, she also discovers strengths she never knew she had.
