Publisher's Summary

Set against the backdrop of an eerie island town in the dead of winter, The Wife and the Widow is a mystery-thriller told from two perspectives: Kate, a widow whose grief is compounded by what she learns about her dead husband’s secret life; and Abby, an island local whose world is turned upside down when she’s forced to confront the evidence that her husband is a murderer. 

But nothing on this island is quite as it seems, and only when these women come together can they discover the whole story about the men in their lives.  

Brilliant and beguiling, The Wife and the Widow is a gripping tale of deception and sacrifice from Australia’s most exciting new crime writer.

hard to follow

The story was all over the place, switching at times when didn't seem appropriate. I got lost more than once. The name of father and son too similar so was trying to work out who was killing who all the time.

Such a great twist!

I struggled a lot at the start. It seemed to be going nowhere and too drawn out but when you realised the twist was happening, it all made sense and brilliantly written. I really enjoyed this book!
