Product description

Review

"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

"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."--Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Find Her and Right Behind You

"A twisted psychological thriller you'll have trouble putting down."--People

"Fiona Barton's debut novel, The Widow, is being compared to Gone Girl, Before I Go To Sleep and The Girl on the Train. It's actually better than them all."--Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"[A] twisty tale...with a mesmerizing if unreliable narrator...that will blow your mind."--Oprah.com

"[Jean is] a fascinating puzzle...Barton knows how to ramp up tension."--The New York Times Book Review

"[Barton] delivers the goods...Richly character-driven in a way that is both satisfying and engrossing."--The Washington Post

"[The Widow] will keep you in suspense late into the night."--Good Housekeeping

"Barton skillfully weaves a tale that reminds us that yes, we can be deceived by others, but we can just as easily deceive ourselves."--USA Today

"Both a taut reconstruction of a crime and a ruthless examination of marriage...A smartly crafted, compulsively readable tale about the lies people tell each other, and themselves, when the truth is the last thing they really want to know."--Entertainment Weekly

"Barton's writing is compelling and top-notch."--Associated Press

"Gone Girl fans will relish this taut, psychological thriller."--US Weekly

"The Widow never loses sight of the dark secrets that define ordinary lives, the gray areas where deception gives way to the truth. This is one book in which such subtleties matter as much as the plot."--Chicago Tribune

"[Barton's] journalistic eye is what makes this debut novel so assured and compelling."--NPR.org

"Every once in awhile, a suspense thriller comes along that grips readers and won't let go....Joining that mini-library is The Widow by Fiona Barton, a thoroughly chilling novel with one of the most unreliable narrators in recent memory."--The Sacramento Bee

"I read The Widow with an increasing sense that I was turning the pages through next year's The Girl on the Train. It has all the ingredients for a bestseller--a clear proposition and a central premise that will stimulate word of mouth."--The Bookseller (UK)

"A twisty psychological suspense that held me spellbound. Fiona Barton delves into the darkest reaches of the husband and wife relationship and the secrets they keep."--Linda Castillo, New York Times bestselling author of Among the Wicked
