THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER. "The ultimate psychological thriller". (Lisa Gardner). We've all seen him: the man - the monster - staring from the front page of every newspaper, accused of a terrible crime. But what about her: the woman who grips his arm on the courtroom stairs - the wife who stands by him? Jean Taylor's life was blissfully ordinary. Nice house, nice husband. Glen was all she'd ever wanted: her Prince Charming. Until he became that man accused, that monster on the front page. Jean was married to a man everyone thought capable of unimaginable evil. But now Glen is dead and she's alone for the first time, free to tell her story on her own terms. Jean Taylor is going to tell us what she knows. Du Maurier's REBECCA meets WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN and GONE GIRL in this intimate tale of a terrible crime. "My book of the year so far". (C. L. Taylor, author of THE LIE).

Reviews

"Feted as this year's The Girl on the Train" OBSERVER "The big thriller of the year" STYLIST "The ultimate psychological thriller. Barton carefully unspools this dark, intimate tale of a terrible crime, a stifling marriage, and the lies spouses tell not just to each other, but to themselves in order to make it through. The ending totally blew me away." LISA GARDNER "The most buzzed about book of 2016" HEAT "Stunning from start to finish. I devoured it in one sitting. The best book I've read this year. If you liked GONE GIRL, you'll love this. Fiona Barton is a major new talent." M J Arlidge "An unsettling, compulsive tale" GOOD HOUSEKEEPING "Dark, compelling and utterly unputdownable. My book of the year so far" C. L. Taylor, author of THE ACCIDENT and THE LIE "A book you'll drop everything to whip through" GLAMOUR "A cleverly conceived, interesting novel" LITERARY REVIEW "A complex, intriguing heroine and a dark, unsettling story makes this a real page-turner." Woman & Home "A skilful, tautly written thriller" RED "She tells her tale with a realism and restraint that add to its shattering impact" PUBLISHERS WEEKLY "'A brilliant, enthralling debut'" Jill Mansell "A terrifically chilling exploration of the darkness at the heart of a seemingly ordinary marriage, the life of quiet desperation behind a neat suburban door. Gripping and horribly plausible" Tammy Cohen "A terrifically chilling exploration of the darkness at the heart of a seemingly ordinary marriage, the life of quiet desperation behind a neat suburban door. Gripping and horribly plausible" Tammy Cohen "Gritty, emotional and so believable" ESSENTIALS "Next year's The Girl on the Train" THE BOOKSELLER "The Widow is generating a huge buzz" SUNDAY MAIL "Will keep you gripped till the end" CANDIS "A highly enjoyable first novel...

Daily Express "A strikingly strong story, executed with fierce professionalism and rings true from page one... This has bestseller written all over it." Daily Mail "Just amazing. A mix of Patricia Highsmith with the very best of Ruth Rendell. This is going to be a huge hit" Ken Bruen
