When a wife goes missing, her husband is often the prime suspect in her disappearance. But what happens when she is never found? These are their stories.

Fascinated by missing persons reports and cold cases for as long as she can remember, JJ Slate's debut true crime book highlights thirty shocking true stories of wives that have mysteriously vanished, presumably at the hands of her husband. Countless cases like these have played out under the public spotlight, and many of them have been solved after the wife's remains have eventually been found. But some of these women remain missing years later, denying the families their right to bury their loved one. Many of these families continue the gruesome search for the remains of their daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt, or mother years, even decades, later.

Missing Wives, Missing Lives focuses on thirty unique cases in which the wife has never been found and the undying efforts of her family as they continue the painful search to bring her home. The book covers decades old cases, such as Jeanette Zapata, who has been missing since 1976, to more recent and widely known cases, such as Stacy Peterson, who has been missing since 2007. Keeping these women's stories alive may be the key to solving the mystery and bringing them home to their family. Someone out there knows something.

Great book sad but true account of missing wives. So many missing and some are sadly never found. JJ did a great job telling the stories of these missing women.

Truly sensational. Truly a sensational and unbelievably well written book. The author did an incredible amount of researching that is quite evident throughout the various cases of these terribly unfortunate women. The book is really eye-opening, intriguing and quite frightening at times! It's filled with unforgettable tragic moments that brilliantly reflect how desperate the situation of these women was. I loved every part of it! Each case is unique in its own way, yet they all come together to tell this tragic story of how some wives just go missing and may never be found. Easily one of my favourite mystery/crime books! I highly recommend it!
