Review quote

-Full of twists and turns, [My Husband's Wife] draws you into its complicated world within the first chapter, and it doesn't let you go until you've turned the final page. Corry's talented storytelling and brilliant writing make even the most seemingly obvious aspects of the novel appear in surprising ways. A must-read book for fans of the kind of psychological thrillers that have been all the rage.- -Bustle -[My Husband's Wife] nicely fits into the psychological suspense genre that's riding a slipstream of popularity, thanks to the success of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train. . . Addictive. . . [a] seemingly unending trove of delicious disasters and deceits.- --Washington Post -If you loved Gone Girl and The Talented Mr. Ripley, you'll love My Husband's Wife by Jane Corry. It's got every thriller's trifecta: love, marriage and murder.- --Parade -Brilliant, original and complex, with a dark triangle at its center. A compelling thriller that kept me turning the pages until the end.- --B.A. Paris, New York Times bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors -Lies fester and multiply, undermining intimate relationships in this psycholgical thriller. Corry's suspenseful debut novel is already a best-seller in the UK and is likely headed for similar success here.- --Booklist (starred review) -A devilishly devious U.S. debut. . . this swiftly moving psychological thriller offers surprises right up to the finish.- --Publishers Weeklyshow more
