A tensely gripping story of psychological suspense 12 Aug. 2003
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Englishman's Wife by Louis Sanders is a deftly literate novel which explores the dark aspects of jealousy and paranoia that so often oppress human relationships. When John, a freelance writer, is unable to find work, vicious ruminations and suspicions of infidelity congregate within his mind, drawing inevitably and corrosively to ruthless conclusions. The Englishman's Wife is commended to sophisticated readers as being a superbly crafted and tensely gripping story of psychological suspense. Also highly recommended is Louis Sanders' debut novel, Death In The Dordogne (185242673X, $13.00).
Brilliant Novels 13 Feb. 2014
By Srdjan Pesic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the second novel that Louis Sanders wrote about the British ex-pat community in Dordogne, France. His is not a quaint, bucolic France from postcards and stylish cook books. On the contrary the rural, claustrophobic villages, small-minded envious peasants and their annoying snobbish British counterparts seem downright frightening. These short succinct novels with sharply drawn characters are brilliant and deeply disturbing. Turbulent people who lack communication skills could be like a time bomb.
And in this amazing book it all explodes and implodes in the same time. Quite a treat.

Disappointed 29 Nov. 2010
By Enova_32 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The characters in the book were unlikeable without any redemptive qualities and I found the story to be dark and depressing.
