Imogen Naughton’s sudden disappearance shocks those closest to her in Sheila O’Flanagan’s THE MISSING WIFE, published by Grand Central today. The novel is now available in ebook, audiobook and trade paperback in the US.

Booklist described the novel as 'haunting… full of charming, fully realized characters and well-written dialogue set against the picturesque French seaside. If you’ve ever wondered what GONE GIRL would have been like as a domestic drama instead of a thriller, this is the book for you.' American readers can enter a giveaway to win a copy here, featuring an interview with the author.

THE MISSING WIFE captured the imagination of UK readers following its publication by Headline. In its first full week of sales, it shot to the #1 bestseller position in Ireland and #4 in the Sunday Times Paperback Fiction Bestseller list. It remained in the charts three months after its publication, breaking Sheila’s record for consecutive weeks in the bestseller charts. In June it hit #1 on the Kindle list and ended the year on a high by reaching #6 in Amazon’s bestselling ebooks of 2017.

When Imogen Naughton vanishes, everyone who knows her is shocked. She has a perfect marriage. Her handsome husband treats her like a princess. She’s always said how lucky she is. So why has she left? And how will she survive without Vince?

What goes on behind closed doors is often a surprise, and Imogen surprises herself by taking the leap she knows she must. But as she begins her journey to find the woman she once was, Imogen’s past is right behind her…

Rights for THE MISSING WIFE have already sold in several markets including Czech Republic, Russia, Estonia and Germany. The second novel in Sheila’s Young Adult CRYSTAL RUN series, SHIELD OF LIES, will be published in March in the UK by Hodder and the paperback of WHAT HAPPENED THAT NIGHT will be published on 22nd February by Headline.

Sheila was awarded the prestigious Irish Tatler Woman of the Year Award in 2003 and currently lives in Dublin with her husband. Her books have sold over 7.5 million copies.
