Product description

Review

"[A] stellar family drama. A clever twist near the end upends the plot's trajectory. Readers will eagerly await White's next. "--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A compelling, fast-paced tale...a gripping psychological thriller that delivers on its examination of the corrosive impact of family secrets with a dramatic finish that upends expectations."--New York Review of Books

"The author does a vivid job of creating real characters and captures the alternately calm and claustrophobic feeling of island life. Some readers will find the twists fair and others, infuriating, but no doubt all will hang on to discover the ending."--Kirkus Reviews

"White delivers a shocking, excellently executed twist that will have readers reexamining their assumptions; this
and the sordid details of decades-old misery and fierce parental love make The Wife and the Widow a story
to remember. Fans of White's debut will be pleased with this follow-up."--Booklist

"White is a master of the art of misdirection. Just when you think you have worked things out, he pulls back the curtain to reveal his cunning sleight of hand. It's often hard to write about the machinations of a really good crime novel without giving too much away, and this is indeed the case with The Wife and the Widow. It's one of those books that you recommend to people with the instruction, read it - and then we can talk. What can be said is that White employs a highly original narrative structure. But he also writes like a dream. The Nowhere Child was not a fluke. The Wife and the Widow is one of the most original crime novels of the year and White is clearly a rising international star of the now very vibrant Australian crime fiction scene. Prepare to be dazzled."--Sydney Morning Herald

Product Description

Set against the backdrop of an eerie island town in the dead of winter, The Wife and the Widow is a mystery/thriller told from two perspectives: Kate, a widow whose grief is compounded by what she learns about her dead husband’s secret life; and Abby, an island local whose world is turned upside down when she’s forced to confront the evidence that her husband is a murderer. But nothing on this island is quite as it seems, and only when these women come together can they discover the whole story about the men in their lives.

Brilliant and beguiling, The Wife and the Widow takes you to a cliff edge and asks the question: how well do we really know the people we love?
