Publisher's Summary

My husband was not a monster. No matter what they say....

The day my husband, Michael, stepped in front of a lorry after being questioned by the police, my world fell apart. He was devoted to me and our six-year-old daughter. But they’d connected him to the disappearance of a young mother from our tiny village.

Now I stand at Michael’s funeral, clutching my little girl’s hand, with tears in my eyes as I insist to all our friends that he died an innocent man. Yet the questions have started, and nothing I say will stop them digging for the truth.

But none of them can read the secrets in my heart, or know about the phone I found hidden in his toolbox....

I’m determined that my daughter will not remember her father as a monster. I will erase any hint of wrongdoing in this house whatever the cost.

Because to keep my daughter safe, the last thing I need is for people to start looking at me....

A completely gripping psychological thriller from the author of the number one best seller The Marriage. If you like Gone Girl, The Girl on The Train and The Wife Between Us then you will love The Widow.

dumbed down

as a murder-mystery, I had to keep reading to find out who dunnit, but the lead character was annoyingly soap-opera-ish and the narrative so repetitive, that I had to play at 1.3x speed to get to the end faster.

slow burner

An interesting story, a little slow but overall not bad. I struggled with Michael not telling Kate what had happened as there relationship was "so" strong the one person he could have confided in was her, that took this book down a notch.

Kept me guessing!

It’s been a while since I have found a book I can’t put down. So many twists, I honestly couldn’t have guessed the ending!

Wonderfully Twisty Tale

So like all these sorts of stories you think you know where it's going, but then it twists again, and you go huh... didn't see that coming!!
The narrator is brilliant, each character has a distinctive voice.

Fantastic plot twists!

It’s quite like a gripping crime TV drama, would recommend! A lot of twists you don’t see coming, even if it takes awhile to for it all to fall into place. Great performance as well.
