A loving husband, or a heartless killer, she should know, shouldn’t she?
Jean Taylors life was perfectly ordinary, a nice life in a nice home, with Glen, her prince charming. That is until her husband Glen is accused of an awful crime and becomes the monster you see on front page news.
She played the loyal wife who stood by him. But now Glen is dead now and she no longer has to stay quiet.
The public want to hear her story. They want to know what it was like living with a man who was capable of the crime. She can tell them that there were secrets, there are always secrets in a marriage. Everyone wants the truth , but Jean has learned that she can make people believe anything…
As with The Child I again thoroughly enjoyed Fiona Barton’s writing style telling the story from different points of view, e.g. ‘The Widow’, ‘The Reporter’ and ‘The Detective’. This dropped crumbs of “the truth” feeding my appetite for more. Fiona’s experience as a journalist is evident in both of her novels, bringing an original take on a domestic thriller.
There were many twists and turns, with a very unreliable narrator, It made me question if I could believe anything from ‘The Widow’ point of view. I devoured this book in just two sittings and I for one cannot wait for Fiona Barton’s next novel.
I rate this book 5 stars.
I wanted to bring a new aspect to this blog which would get you lovely readers involved. As you can see from this picture, my reading buddy is Binks our kitten. She was found abandoned at the bottom of our garden under a tree before Christmas and she has now adopted me as her mother. I know that lots of you read with your pets or possibly family so I would love for you to comment with your pictures or even send them through my Get in Touch page. I cannot wait to hear from you.
On to the next book…
