Now You See Me by Chris McGeorge

A group of six young men and women went for their annual ride through a scary tunnel.  Only one came out and he was unconscious.  He gets arrested for murder.  He doesn't remember what happened but he knows he didn't kill them.  The police can find no bodies but there wasn't anywhere they could go.  He ends up in jail while they investigate.

Hanover Square Press and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published September 3rd.

Robin's wife went missing three years ago.  They loved each other deeply and he couldn't understand it.  He kept hoping that she would still call or come home.  When Matt, the young man in jail, calls him and tells him he needs his help and his wife was the one who gave him his number, he doesn't believe him.  Then he gives him a key phrase only she could have known.  He goes to see the young man.  He agrees to help Matt if he will tell him more about his wife.  Matt says he will tell him all he knows if Robin will just help him get out of jail.

Robin begins looking into things and the town folk aren't happy.  They want him to go away.  He even gets beat up in an alley.  He does solve the mystery though.  The truth is sordid and sick.  What happened to his wife is very sad.  Most important, Matt wasn't guilty.  But the other five were...
