Publisher's Summary

All she wanted was the truth, but she'll wish she never found out.

When Catherine wakes up alone one morning, she thinks her husband has gone for a run before work. But Simon never makes it to the office. His running shoes are by the front door. Nothing is missing - except him.

Catherine knows Simon must be in trouble. He wouldn't just leave her. He wouldn't leave the children.

But Simon knows the truth - about why he left and what he's done. He knows things about his marriage that it would kill Catherine to find out. The memories she holds onto are lies.

While Catherine faces a dark new reality at home, Simon's halfway around the world, alive and thriving. He's doing whatever it takes to stay one step ahead of the truth.

But he can't hide forever, and when he reappears twenty-five years later, Catherine will finally learn who he is.

And wish she'd stayed in the dark.

    "Exceptional"

    I rarely give 5 star reviews but this book is so worth one. I listened to the book in one day as it was so enthralling. Yes, parts are a little far fetched but this is fiction after all.
    some parts are pretty uncomfortable listening but overall one of the best I've had so far, definitely looking at future books by the author.

    "This novel has issues!"

    When You Disappeared could have been a great novel if a competent author had taken the plot concept and written the novel. it is still a marginally good psychological thriller. The story is told in the first person of the female protagonist and the male antagonist with Elizabeth Knowelden reading the female part very well and Simon Mattacks reading the male part not so well. My main issue with the novel is that it is so chopped up that it's difficult for the listener to keep pace as the novel goes back and forth constantly over a 28 year time period. The novel hits the time periods in seemingly random order.

    Summary: Great plot concept with poor implementation due to dizzyingly frequent skips back and forth over 28 years; poor narration by the male narrator.

    "When You Disappeared by Ohn Marris"

    Always tell the truth, always before the lies are as difficult to discover as they are in When You Disappeared. Ah what an awesome novel this will keep you rivited to whereevre you are when you begin listening. So stock up on tissue paper, ice cream, chocolate or beer or wine or potato chips. You will need the comfort food.

    "SPOILER ALERT"

    Wow. This book had so many twists and turns you never knew what was going to happen next. It grabs and keeps your attention. You don't immediately know just how psychotic Simon is immediately. The part about what he allowed to happen to Billy had me holding back tears. He was evil through and through.

    "Much to discuss"
    If you could sum up When You Disappeared in three words, what would they be?

    childhood experiences speak


    What other book might you compare When You Disappeared to and why?

    The glass castle


    Which character – as performed by Simon Mattacks and Elizabeth Knowelden – was your favorite?

    no favorites


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Neither, it affirmed


    Any additional comments?

    This s book speaks to the long term consequences of childhood. It shows how deceptive thoughts can be. It makes clear how being transparent can prevent so much.

    "Holy Moly!!"

    What a story! I love a book that requires you to pay close attention to what’s going on. Moving back and forth through time in the lives of the characters will keep you on your toes in this story. Just when you think you have it figured out #johnmarrs switches lanes. You’ll be heart broken, angry, confused and then back to heart broken. Really enjoyed this book as well as the performers #simonmattacks and #elizabethknowelden.

    My only complaint is the use of God’s name in vain. I know it happens I just don’t see the necessity in using that or any slang or vulgar language. It certainly doesn’t help the story line but it does prevent people from reading/listening to the book.

    I listen to 20-40 Hours of audible per week and this is the first review I've bothered writing. If you like mysteries and relationship based novels, this is a goodie.

    "

    I will say that the characters were well drawn; its the best showing of a true sociopath I've read. I dislike the ending because it showed the nature of cowardice

    Terrible. Not sure why the author felt the need to have shocking awful things happen all the time. Main character is absolutely repulsive. Douche bag. Would not recommend.
