Die for You: A Novel | [Lisa Unger]

Die for You: A Novel

Isabel Raine thought she had everything - a successful career, a supportive family, and a happy marriage to the man she loved. Then one ordinary morning, her husband, Marcus, picks up his briefcase, kisses her good-bye, and simply vanishes. That day, all her calls to him go straight to voice mail; the messages she leaves at his office go unreturned, too. Panicking after finally receiving a call from his cell phone in which all she can hear is a man's terrified cry, Isabel calls the police.

Publisher's Summary

Isabel Raine thought she had everything - a successful career, a supportive family, and a happy marriage to the man she loved. Then one ordinary morning, her husband, Marcus, picks up his briefcase, kisses her good-bye, and simply vanishes.

That day, all her calls to him go straight to voice mail; the messages she leaves at his office go unreturned, too. Panicking after finally receiving a call from his cell phone in which all she can hear is a man's terrified cry, Isabel calls the police. But they aren't interested. Men leave, they tell her. They leave all the time.

Desperate to find her husband, Isabel races to his office. But instead of finding him, she finds herself in the middle of an FBI raid. Hours later, she awakens in the hospital with a severe concussion and a homicide detective by her bedside waiting to question her about Marcus Raine - the real Marcus Raine.

What the Critics Say

"Unger has proved herself to be a master of pacing and suspense and DIE FOR YOU is no exception; in fact, it is the most nerve-wracking, hand-wringing book I've read by her to date. This truly is edge-of your-seat action and my whole body was tense while I read. BUY THIS BOOK!" (Crimespree magazine)

    "Involving"

    I can understand Ted's feelings about the story unfolding slowly, but for me this was the very quality that made it a satisfying story. Some books are driven by the speed of action, others - like Unger's - dig deep into what is being experienced by the characters. If you are an introspective kind of person, I suspect you will like the book.
    And, I found the story line believable enough. After all, it was not as if the main protagonist was imbued with unusually great skill, intelligence or strength. Pig-headed persistence was all.

    "disappointed"

    The pace of this book was annoyingly slow. It was held back by the author's need to tell you about every character's thought processes, rationalizations etc. The premise of the story is also significantly unbelievable - an ordinary untrained female author takes on a murderer/criminal and chases him on her own, and without help, around the world while avoiding the police, in order to gain insight into his betrayal of her.
