The truth isn't what it seems in this stirring novel of suspense.

After presenting a major scientific breakthrough to a rapt audience across the country, renowned astronomer Sarah Mayfield returns home to a disturbing discovery. Her husband, Ben, a Los Angeles restaurateur, has disappeared, leaving behind an unexplained bank deposit of a million dollars, a loaded Glock in the nightstand, and a video security system that's been wiped clean. The only answers their son, Zack, can offer are the last words his father said to him: keep the doors locked and set the alarm.

Sarah's marriage was more troubled than anyone suspected, but now she is afraid that her husband's recent past could be darker than she dares to admit. Suspecting that nothing about Ben's vanishing is what it seems, Sarah must delve into the space between old memories, newfound fears, and misleading clues to piece together the mystery of her husband's disappearance--and find what she hopes in her heart is the truth.

WOW this book was so good! It is a mystery and if you think it is one of those books that you will have figured out in chapter 5,6 or 7 you are wrong. I of course started reading this at bedtime, my husband rolled over and asked if I planned to get any sleep that night because it was already 3 a.m. I couldn’t stop reading because I needed to find out what was next. This book had mystery, suspense a good bit about space, and a strong female lead. This honestly was one of the best books I’ve read this year. 

About the author (2018)

Dete Meserve is the award-winning, bestselling author of Good Sam and Perfectly Good Crime. When she's not writing, she is a film and television producer in Los Angeles and a partner and CEO of Wind Dancer Films. Meserve has been fascinated by the stars ever since she first saw the Milky Way arching overhead while on a camping trip when she was ten. Her grandmother worked at NASA's Manned Spacecraft Center (now Johnson Space Center) during the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs, and the photos she sent from those missions made Meserve curious about the moon and all the wonders in the night sky. Her love for the stars has followed her into her adult life where she is an executive producer of Ready Jet Go!, an award-winning astronomy and earth science series watched by millions of kids on PBS Kids and around the globe. While working on the series, she began to see that there is a profound connection between all we are discovering in the realm of the stars, and the universe of emotions within ourselves. In her third novel, The Space Between, the stars offer an ideal backdrop for a story about rediscovering a love that's been right in front of us all along. In the universe, as in love, so many of our most important discoveries are made when we look past what seems to be true, when we find ways around our blind spots, and when we discover new ways to see through the darkness into the light. Meserve lives in Los Angeles with her husband and three children--and a very good cat that rules them all.
