The Widow

Staff Review: The Widow

"The Widow" by Fiona Barton

Cover: 'The Widow'

What would you do if you found out the innermost secrets your husband has locked away; that he has a whole other life he's been keeping from you? What if you realize your husband could really be a monster? These are the questions Jean is forced to face after a local girl suddenly vanishes and the police end up on her doorstep. The novel shifts between the past year of her life, to what eventually made her a widow. I would suggest reading this book instead of listening to it, as there are shifting viewpoints and time frames. While this book certainly kept my interest, I didn't feel it lived up to the comparisons of "Girl on the Train" or "Gone Girl". Overall however, it was a good psychological thriller that kept me intrigued about the husband's guilt until the very end.
