Book Review- The Widow by Fiona Barton

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this ebook, free of charge,from Berkley Publishing Group, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it


For fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, an electrifying thriller
 that will take you into the dark spaces that exist between a husband and a wife.


Synopsis:

When the police started asking questions, Jean Taylor turned into a different woman. One who enabled her and her husband to carry on, when more bad things began to happen...

But that woman's husband died last week. And Jean doesn't have to be her anymore.


There's a lot Jean hasn't said over the years about the crime her husband was suspected of committing. She was too busy being the perfect wife, standing by her man while living with the accusing glares and the anonymous harassment. 


Now there's no reason to stay quiet. There are people who want to hear her story. They want to know what it was like living with that man. She can tell them that there were secrets. There always are in a marriage. 


The truth—that's all anyone wants. But the one lesson Jean has learned in the last few years is that she can make people believe anything…

Review:

It is hard to believe that this is the author;s FIRST novel! It reads so much like an experienced writer took a typical police procedural and turned it inside out! Told from different perspectives, the story allows the reader to see all sides of a police investigation and how things can go right, even when they go very very wrong. Karma. It's crazy. This is a story that is going to be talked about around the water cooler for MONTHS, and trust me, this is one that you want to read NOW, so you can be the one telling everyone about it! It will lead you down many side roads, that are almost as interesting as the tale itself. It will leave you guessing what really happened and then give you an ending that will having you re-reading it over and over! Don't miss this one!
