MFOB featured book: Two Nights in Lisbon
In Two Nights in Lisbon, Ariel awakens, alone. Her husband seems to be gone—no warning, no note, not answering his phone. Did he go for a jog and get mugged? Kidnapped? Murdered? Could he secretly be a money-launderer, a con artist, a drug smuggler? A spy? Did he maybe get cold feet about this marriage and leave her? Or is it possible that John simply left for work very early?
She starts her inquiries with the hotel staff, then the police, then the American embassy, at each confronting questions she can’t fully answer: What exactly is John doing in Lisbon? Who would want to harm him? How does Ariel know so little about her new—much younger—husband? Why did he drag her along on his business trip?
Ariel is growing frustrated, desperate, and is on the verge of collapse. Then a motorcycle screeches to a halt at her side; the rider thrusts something at her, then tears away. It’s a phone. It’s ringing.
The clock is now ticking, Ariel is running out of time, and she has no choice but to turn to the one person in the world she least wants to.
