Can love be so all encompassing between two people that the surviving mate is unable to move forward in life? Bestselling novelist J.T. Ellison plumbs the depths of love and loss in her enthralling novel, No One Knows.

Years after her husband is declared legally dead, Aubrey Hamilton encounters a mysterious figure who reenters her life, yet she doesn’t know whether to accept his presence without question or push him out of her life for good.

No One Knows is filled with so many plot twists it is reminiscent of Hitchcock’s best work and would make the master of suspense fiction himself, Edgar Allan Poe, proud. After all, this is one of those intricately plotted thrillers where the author seems to love toying with us!

Several times while reading this book I thought I knew how and why Aubrey’s husband disappeared the night of his best friend Josh’s bachelor party. However, Ellison never fails to poke holes in every one of my theories in the very next chapter.

Determined readers will gladly examine every mysterious scenario that Ellison serves up with all the aplomb of a master illusionist, holding each possible explanation up to the light while ruefully misleading us with a writer’s slight of hand. But don’t let the smoke and mirrors in this story frustrate you. The payoff in the end is worth giving this tale one tenacious read.

Do yourself a favor and kick back with a glass of wine and your favorite snack and let Ellison entertain, mesmerize and ultimately shock you with a novel that is as outrageous as it is spellbinding. Complex and chilling, No One Knows is destined to be one of your favorite thrillers of the year.

    A husband goes missing. His wife can’t accept that he is dead. A mysterious stranger shows up out of the blue. And we’re just getting started! If you love enthralling suspense, don’t miss J.T. Ellison’s NO ONE KNOWS, a labyrinthine novel filled with more twists and turns than a funhouse maze.
