Today I am reviewing on its publication day The Serial Killer’s Wife by Alice Hunter, published by Avon Books.
Every marriage has its secrets…
Beth and Tom Hardcastle are the envy of their neighbourhood – they have the perfect marriage, the perfect house, the perfect family.
When the police knock on their door one evening, Beth panics. Tom should be back from work by now – what if he’s crashed his car? She fears the worst.
But the worst is beyond imagining.
As the interrogation begins, Beth will find herself questioning everything she believed about her husband.
They’re saying he’s a monster. And they’re saying she knew.
The Serial Killer’s Wife had me at its title and I just knew I was going to be hooked and completely addicted to it right from the get go. I was not wrong! What a thrilling tale this is. Intense, complex, compelling and engrossing are just some words to describe how I feel about it.
As I sit down to write more to this review, I am finding it quite hard as I don’t want to give anything away. It is just one of those books that you need to experience for yourself and go in with just the blurb details.
What I will say is, it is very clever and has been well plotted out, written and executed with a brilliant twist. This book is the whole package and is another perfect example as to why I love this genre so much. All up a very chilling and entertaining read.
Thank you to Alice Hunter, Avon Books and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The Serial Killer’s Wife, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
This review will be added to, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Amazon Australia & Amazon US. I will also add to NetGalley, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play and Barnes & Noble if available. As I am from Australia, I am unable to add to Amazon UK, but will post to Waterstones & Foyles if also available.
