The Widow by Fiona Barton

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.

Peer & Press Reviews

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, author of Liar Liar

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, author of Fear Nothing

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, author of First One Missing
