Gregg Olsen, New York Times Bestselling Author, says, “Baer writes with guts and sensitivity—the kind of suspense that turns a reader into a fan. I can’t wait for his next thrilling read.”

Isaac learns that his wife’s disappearance is the ninth in a string of similar cases. In the wake of this news, he struggles to cope, to be a good father to his daughter and college-bound son, and to reclaim something of an ordinary life even as he conceals his troubled past.

After the FBI makes an arrest, and his wife is presumed dead, Isaac begins to move on. Yet will his secrets catch up with him? Has he conquered his vices for good? And what of the FBI’s theory that the case isn’t completely resolved, after all?

OKbook Hoarder says, “Absolutely heartbreaking. This book has everything. Suspenseful, crime, heartbreak, laughter, romance, and just full of messed up stuff. Follow Isaac as his world crumbles....”

"An American Family by Jackson Baer is a contemporary suspense thriller that follows the Childs family through the tragedy that shatters their perfect life. It will have you on the edge of your seat and reading faster than you’ve ever read a book before!

"As someone who reads a lot of thriller/suspense novels, I have to admit that I go into reading new books with a lot of expectations. I always have high hopes that I’ll stumble across something amazing and unique. And boy did I get just that with An American Family! Not only is the plot itself gripping and full of mystery and intrigue, but it is also full of really good characterisation."
