QBD reviews: The Wife and The Widow

Have you picked up our Book of the Month, Christian White's The Wife and the Widow, yet?

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.

What our reviewers thought:

An unsettling and shocking murder mystery set on a small island off the coast of Melbourne, where a Wife hunts for answers about the murder of her husband and discovers things are not as she thought. The twists in this novel were second to none - completely unexpected and skilfully plotted. Easily one of the best crime thrillers I have read all year. One word - Brilliant!

From the author that gave us The Nowhere Child comes another thrilling masterpiece that will leave you questioning if you truly know those close to you. A widow is left unravelling the secrets her husband left behind, while a wife starts to question if her husband could in fact be a murderer. A truly incredible narrative, full of twists and turns. Another amazing Aussie crime author to watch.
