The Stranger in My Bed by Michael Fleeman

In this New York Times bestseller, Fleeman, a correspondent from PEOPLE's Los Angeles bureau, investigates the true story' of a geeky Ohio introvert named John David Smith who managed to charm and marry three women, two of whom vanished without a trace. It took an army of law enforcement agents in half a dozen states to link Smith to his second wife's 1991 disappearance in New Jersey and 20 years to identify the remains of the "Lady in the Box," the body of his first wife, found in a ditch beside an Indiana road in 1980. (St. Martin's, $6.99)
