What to expect

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of His Perfect Wife by Natasha Bell, read by Katharine McEwan.

She was his perfect wife, until she went missing.

Alexandra Southwood has vanished. Her husband, Marc, is beside himself. It isn’t long before the police are searching for a body.

But Alexandra is alive – trapped, far away from her husband and young daughters.

Desperate, Marc will stop at nothing to find the woman he loves. Even if it means discovering that he never really knew her at all.

Because Alexandra is no ordinary missing person – but then neither is she quite a perfect wife . . .

Previously published as Exhibit Alexandra.
