Put a tag -- any format will do, although you may want to create a
unique one -- on the last page of the book. Type something in it, then
change the Font properties to white, so it's invisible. Save the file.

In the footers on the master pages of your chapters, set up your page
number area so that it uses the regular page number variable for the
regular page number and a cross reference to the page that carries the
"white tag" to get the total number of pages.
