Product description

Review

"An intriguing, twisty psychological thriller, The Wife had me tearing through the pages, never sure which characters to trust. Smart, suspenseful, and absolutely riveting."--Megan Miranda, author of All the Missing Girls

"[A] page-turner.... Classic domestic-thriller elements--the too-perfect couple, the unreliable narrator, the troubled past--are given a good workout in this satisfying round of 'Who's the Psycho?'"--Kirkus

"Alafair Burke always delivers. The Wife is a timely, gracefully written exploration of family, crime, and the current media-soaked, celebrity-obsessed, smartphone-crazed moment. Highly recommended."--William Landay, author of Defending Jacob

"A subtly sneaky, emotionally complex, and utterly addictive novel of psychological suspense, The Wife delivers on all fronts. Burke always comes through with twisty plots and strong female characters, but she's at the top of her game here."--Lisa Scottoline, author of Exposed

"[A] roller-coaster of a domestic thriller."--Publishers Weekly

"This might be the most gripping, insightful work from the best-selling author Alafair Burke yet. She poses a seemingly impossible, if undeniably compelling, challenge: a woman must either save her life or defend her husband, but not both."--Entertainment Weekly

"With plot twists and turns to the very end, this is a tantalizing follow-up to The Ex that will keep pages turning."--Booklist

"Written by a former prosecutor with a genius for plot, this thrill ride of a novel takes a hard look at loyalty and the violence a secret can cause--especially when that secret involves a revered public figure accused of rape."--O, The Oprah Magazine

"Burke's female characters are always very involving, with big, strong voices."--Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl

"A timely, riveting, and deeply resonant psychological suspense novel."--Library Journal

From the Back Cover

HIS SCANDAL, HER SECRET

When Angela met Jason Powell while catering a dinner party in East Hampton, she assumed their romance would be a short-lived fling, like so many relationships between locals and summer visitors. To her surprise, Jason, a brilliant economics professor at NYU, had other plans, and they married the following summer. For Angela, the marriage turned out to be a chance to reboot her life. She and her son were finally able to move out of her mother’s home to Manhattan, where no one knew about her tragic past. 

Six years later, thanks to a bestselling book and a growing media career, Jason has become a cultural lightning rod, placing Angela near the spotlight she worked so carefully to avoid. When a college intern accuses Jason of inappropriate behavior, and another woman, Kerry Lynch, comes forward with an even more troubling allegation, their perfect life begins to unravel. Jason insists he is innocent, and Angela believes him. But when Kerry disappears, Angela is forced to take a closer look—at both the man she married and the women she chose not to believe.

This much-anticipated follow-up to Burke’s Edgar-nominated The Ex asks how far a wife will go to protect the man she loves: Will she stand by his side, even if he drags her down with him?
