THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“A twisted psychological thriller you’ll have trouble putting down.”—People

“If you liked Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, you might want to pick up The Widow by Fiona Barton. Engrossing. Suspenseful.”—Stephen King

Following the twists and turns of an unimaginable crime, The Widow is an electrifying debut thriller that will take you into the dark spaces that exist between a husband and a wife.

There’s a lot Jean hasn’t said over the years about the crime her husband was suspected of committing. She was too busy being the perfect wife, standing by her man while living with the accusing glares and the anonymous harassment.
 
Now her husband is dead, and there’s no reason to stay quiet. There are people who want to hear her story. They want to know what it was like living with that man. She can tell them that there were secrets. There always are in a marriage.
 
The truth—that’s all anyone wants. But the one lesson Jean has learned in the last few years is that she can make people believe anything...

Need better ending

The ending just stopped so abruptly I didn’t even know it was over. Makes me not even want to try another story that will end in the same manner

It was ok

It took me almost two weeks to finish this book. I forced myself to get to the end of it. It had no twist or turns and was a book I could definitely put down. This was nothing in comparison to the girl on the train.

Often hard to follow

There were slightly too many viewpoints and too many timelines in the structure that made it difficult to follow. Many parts were also too disturbing to enjoy, even for the mystery. The resolution also was not satisfying and I still was unclear on how it’d been resolved. However, the first half of the book was quite strong and engaging. Worth a read nonetheless, if you enjoy the psychological thriller genre.
