What to expect

‘A fiendishly clever thriller in the vein of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train. This one will keep you guessing.’ – Anita Shreve, author of The Stars are Fire

The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekannen is the shocking Richard and Judy Bookclub bestseller with twists you won’t see coming.

Marrying a man with a past was always going to come with problems, but you never expect to become the focus of another woman’s obsession.

Nellie just wanted to live the life she’d always dreamed about with Richard. But who is his ex-wife, Vanessa? Wasn’t she a total disaster, in all aspects of their marriage? Nellie thinks she knows everything about his previous marriage and their troubled past, but as secrets are unearthed, she starts to think there’s more to the wife before her. . .

Only one thing is certain, she’s not who you think she is. . .

Critics Review

  • It’s easy to see why Steven Spielberg has snapped up the film rights to this book, which is an original take on a winning formula . . . The small twists and turns of the plot are riveting but the pivotal surprise is gobsmacking and it succeeds because of the scrupulous attention to the psychological details of all the characters

    Daily Mail
  • A clever thriller with masterful twists

    Karin Slaughter
  • A twisty, mind-bending novel about marriage and betrayal. A gripping plot and fascinating characters; this book will keep you turning the pages and guessing until the very end. A must-read!

    Lauren Weisberger, New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Wears Prada
  • A fiendishly smart cat-and-mouse thriller

    New York Times Book Review
  • Fans of Gone Girl and The Girl On The Train will adore this classy domestic noir set in New York . . . it has a humdinger of a twist which I didn’t see coming . . . the result is a fast-paced and hugely enjoyable thriller

    Sunday Express
  • Loved it! What a fantastic story, and the twist completely blind-sided me – and that is rare, believe me!
