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

Book Description

The Wife is the standalone follow-up to Alafair Burke's brilliant, Edgar nominated The Ex (2016)
