Must-Read Psychological Thriller: The Perfect Widow

Must-Read Psychological Thriller: The Perfect Widow

Posted by Janie Smith | 21 November 2019 | Arts & Culture

The shelves of your local bookshop are rammed to the rafters with psychological thrillers and it can be difficult to choose your next read. Janie Smith, Culture Editor at Lady Wimbledon, has the answer!

“Perfect Life. Perfect Marriage. Perfect Lie.”

When PC Becca Holt visits the home of a perfect family, the Bridges, to break tragic news, she doesn’t get the response she is expecting.

Louise, Patrick and their two children are a model family until Patrick is killed in an accident. Becca is braced for the worst when she breaks the news to Louise, but her reaction is, in Becca’s eyes, the last thing she expected.

When she spots that the supper table is only laid for three, Becca begins to suspect that Louise knew Patrick wasn’t coming home. As she digs deeper into the Bridges marriage the more secrets she discovers. The question in her mind is how far Louise will go to get what she wants.

The Perfect Widow by A.M. Castle is a cut above when it comes to a gripping, tense psychological thriller. Alice Castle has the perfect understanding of human nature and it is this that allows her to write so vividly and create utterly believable characters. With more twists and turns than a Swiss Alpine Pass you will be drawn in right form the start, in fact, once you start reading, you’ll be hard pushed to put it down! There will only be one question in your mind when you read The Perfect Widow; is Louise a perfect loving wife or a cold-hearted killer?

The Perfect Widow is published by Harper Collins and available on Amazon here >.

About The Perfect Widow

Louise Bridges has the perfect life.

A loving husband, Patrick. Two adorable children. A comfortable home.

So when PC Becca Holt arrives to break the news that Patrick has been killed in an accident, she thinks Louise’s perfect world is about to collapse around her.

But Louise doesn’t react in the way Becca would expect her to on hearing of her husband’s death. And there are only three plates set out for dinner, as if Louise already knew Patrick wouldn’t be home that night…

The more Becca digs, the more secrets she uncovers in the Bridges’ marriage – and the more she wonders just how far Louise would go to get what she wants…

Is Louise a loving wife – or a cold-hearted killer?
