Similar to such recent hits as Gone Girl, Body in the Trunk takes
readers backward and forward in time as true crime writer Tess teams up
with Detective Phil Harris to solve the murder of a young woman whose
body winds up in the trunk of a Toyota Camry. As the team unravels the
story behind the murder, the reader discovers through a parallel back
story the real crime that involves a passionate affair and
love-gone-wrong between neglected wife Mia and a stranger who shows up
in her life named Evan.
