THE MISSING WIFE Published Today by Headline

Bestselling women’s fiction novelist Sheila O’ Flanagan’s 25th title with Headline, THE MISSING WIFE is published today in hardback.

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...Will it catch up with her? And will she be ready to face it if it does?

Sheila is an ex-bond dealer and financial journalist whose novels have all been immediate No. 1 Irish bestsellers.

She was the recipient of the prestigious Irish Tatler Literary Woman of the Year award in 2003. With each publication, she breaks her record of weeks at No. 1.
