So she sets about trying to prove he was - or indeed wasn't, though it's hard to prove a negative - and goes to extraordinary lengths to find out about the 'other woman'.
I have been reading Nicci French since they first started writing and this isn't one of their best books. It's very readable - I flew through it - but it's bigger on personal trauma and self-doubt than it is on actual mystery solving or twists and turns.
The revelation at the end wasn't one I saw coming from a great distance, but it also didn't seem to be terribly obvious in any way. I'd better not say more than that.
Nice touches about friendship and interventions to stop the young widow cutting herself off completely but just lacking the plot turns I expect from there writers.
A thoroughly absorbing tale of a young widow who could not, would not
accept that her husband died in a car with his lover.
I was with her all the way, but felt that attention to detail over finances was missing.
(Not being able to buy food on one page, then buying a pay as you go mobile on the next)
Otherwise I felt that both characters and plot were believable. Psycholigical aspects of the characters, as always, right on point.
The only thing I would say was that the ending was very short and just seemed to tie everything up in a few pages when the details behind what had happened had been so detailed. I felt that a lot of what actually had happened could have been brought into the story a bit more rather than just sort of 'clumped together' at the end. However, I would definitely recommend this book anyone to have a read of and I would be interested to read more from Nicci French.
