Summary, etc.:
"In Secrets of a Marine's Wife, award-winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author Shanna Jogan tells the rue story of a young Marine wife whose illicit affair ended in tragedy. In June 2014, 19-year-old Erin Corwin was living a quiet life in Twentynine Palms, California, expecting her first child with her husband, U.S. MarineCorporal Jon Corwin--until the day she drove off into the desert and never returned. As temperatures climbed into the hundreds, friends and family teamed up with local law enforcement in a grueling search of Joshua Tree National Park. Nearly tow months after her disappearance, Corwin's body was found at the bottom of an abandoned mine shaft, a homemade garrote wrapped around her throat. Suspicions mounted within the tight-knit Marine community as residents questioned if the killer was one of their own. Fellow Marine Christopher Lee and his wife lived next door to the Corwins, and the two young couples had leaned n each other for support. But detectives soon discovered that Chris and Erin's relationship had developed into q whirlwind romance that consumed them both and called the paternity of Corwin's baby into question. Lee told investigatiors he'd gone out hunting the day of Corwin's disappearance, but his claims of innocence soon began to crumble. And while Corwin was researching baby names, Lee was reportedly searching the internet for ways to dispose of a human body. Through interview, court recrods, and extensive research, bestselling ture-crime author Shanna Hogan constructs a chilling story of betrayal, deception,and tragedy."-- Provided by publisher.
