A New York Times top-ten bestseller and a Richard and Judy Book Club Pick 2018.
'A fiendishly clever thriller in the vein of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train. This one will keep you guessing.' - Anita Shreve, author of The Stars are Fire
When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.
It’s about a jealous wife, obsessed with her replacement.
It’s about a younger woman set to marry the man she loves.
The first wife seems like a disaster; her replacement is the perfect woman.
You will assume you know the motives, the history, the anatomy of the relationships.
You will be wrong.
The Wife Between Us is the first collaboration between Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen; a gripping thriller with film rights sold to the creators of The Girl On the Train.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
It sounds like a well-trodden literary path: a jilted, jealous wife falls apart as she obsesses over her ex-husband’s new and predictably youthful fiancée. But Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen have no business with cliché here. They spring clever surprises on every other page, as Vanessa, her younger model Nellie and husband Richard quickly reveal themselves to be multi-dimensional, deliciously untrustworthy characters very different to how we initially suspect. And a tip: don’t stop reading before the epilogue.
