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.

WOW!

I hadn’t read any of Christian White’s books until The Wife & the Widow....but wow! The twists & turns had me thinking deeply to work out “who had dunnit” I was wrong until the last chapter.
This was such an amazing plot & well read by Caz Prescott.
I can’t wait to get my hands on more stories written by Christian.

Dreadful

What an awful boring book. Too much swearing from women. Got to chapter 15 and couldn’t go any further. Won’t be reading or listen to any of Christian Whites books in a hurry

Kept me interested the whole way....

Just enough twists to keep me wanting to hear more...
There were moments where I got a bit lost between past and present but it wasn't a huge issue, I got there in the end. The twists were more subtle in the beginning which I liked, it got a little bit dramatic for my liking in the end but well worth the listen.

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!
