A deadly secret.

An island town.

A storm brewing.

Set against the backdrop of an island town in the dead of winter, The Wife and the Widow is a thriller told from two perspectives: Kate, a widow whose grief is compounded by what she learns about her husband’s secret life; and Abby, an island local who is forced to confront the evidence that her husband is a murderer.

But nothing on this island is quite as it seems. Only when these women are pushed to the edge can they uncover the whole, crashing truth about the men in their lives.

The Wife and the Widow is another mind-bending power read from Christian White. It’s a brilliant tale of deception and sacrifice from Australia’s most exciting new crime writer.

‘Jaw-dropping … one of the best twists I’ve ever read.’ Michael Rowland, ABC News Breakfast

‘The Wife and the Widow is a ripping page-turner that stays with you long after you put it down.’ Domain
