Gwen Pegram’s Debut Novel, The Missing Five

25 Nov

The Missing Five Cover SmashwordOn November 3, 2013, my debut novel, The Missing Five, was published.

The story is set in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area, which is in a panic. Over the span of a month, middle-aged, African-American men are disappearing without a trace. The local police are slow to respond in investigating these bizarre disappearances, and not because the victims are black, but because statistics show that men in the U.S. are not kidnapped unless robbery is involved.

During the upheaval, successful real estate agent, Jackie Trumpleton, cancels a dream vacation to South Africa with four women she has vacationed with for twenty-plus years, and decides to stay in the country. She dismisses the danger and invites the women to vacation in the DC area.

The crisis escalates as the disappearances continue to mount. To avoid backlash, Arlington PD contacts the FBI, but it’s too late. Disaster strikes again. Without warning, more men disappear in the blink of an eye. The count now stands at five.

When the FBI finally gets a clue, secrets are uncovered that will blow the case wide open and shock everyone, except the perpetrator who wears an elaborate mask.

The story is about missing men, their wives and a mistress, a successful real estate agent, and five associates who only get together when they travel domestically and abroad.

The Missing Five is available in paper back from Amazon and via download for almost any eReader at
