Where's Catherine?
Catherine has gone missing, a year after confessing to having an affair. Her husband, a marriage and family therapist, hides her infidelity from the police to protect her reputation—and to shelter his pride.
As the secrets begin to pile up, Mr. Catherine, the unnamed husband of the missing woman, is plunged into a world of underground dealings, kidnappers, ex-lovers and drug running in Little Rock, Arkansas, all while grappling with his part in the highs and lows of the life they led together.
With each passing day, a sleepless Mr. Catherine grows more frantic, drinking and popping pills, which stir up painful visions and remembrances that hold a mirror up to the narrator as he comes to terms with his own emotional betrayals.
Mr. Catherine is a fast-paced domestic noir that explores the dangerous secrets between a husband and a wife, as well as a deeper meditation on marriage, connection and honesty.
"Deftly crafted, Mr. Catherine will keep you up late into the night pondering the missteps we all take and the chances for redemption we all seek."
—Jennie Fields, Author of The Age of Desire
"At once a page-turner and a perceptive, sensitive meditation on marriage and identity, guilt and forgiveness, Mr. Catherine is a terrific debut by Jones."
—Trenton Lee Stewart, New York Times bestselling author of The Mysterious Benedict Society and The Secret Keepers
"A masterpiece of a first novel."
—John Vanderslice, Author of The Last Days of Oscar Wilde
"Mr. Catherine is a page-turner of psychological intrigue, a modern-day thriller that delivers more questions than answers about what unravels and then hopes to heal a wounded marriage."
— Nancy Freund, Author of Rapeseed
"A blood-thrumming thriller and a wise study of middle-class contemporary marriage, Mr. Catherine is a page-turning debut that is both entertaining and heartbreaking. Stacey Margaret Jones takes the age-old tale of a fallen woman and drives a compelling and disturbing plot in a finely observed world of conservative southern America.
—Rebekah Clarkson, Author of Barking Dogs
