About the Book:
SINCLAIR WIFE DEAD! HUSBAND CLEARED!
Police have ruled out suspicious circumstances in the investigation into the death of Elizabeth Sinclair, wife of charismatic entrepreneur Harry Sinclair, found drowned in the lake of the family’s holiday park.
It’s been two years since the Sinclair case closed but when reporter Steph Durham receives a tipoff that could give her the scoop of the year, she’s drawn deeper and deeper into the secretive Sinclair family.
Elizabeth’s death wasn’t a tragic accident. And the truth will come at a deadly price…
The Dead Wife literally takes off at break-neck speed from the very first page of the book. I was hooked until I finished the last page!!!
Elizabeth Sinclair supposedly drowned in a freak accident at her husband’s family’s home two years ago, and the investigation was ruled that it was not a homicide. However, her mother has never given up on getting justice for her daughter. Steph Durham is a journalist, hoping for her big break. When her job takes her to the Sinclair estate, she is also contacted by Elizabeth’s mother, begging her to look into the case. Steph agrees even though her mother, a former detective, encourages her not to. However, she isn’t to be deterred. When she begins, spending more time with Elizabeth’s husband, Harry, she is drawn in deeper to the family. But, danger is closer than she could ever imagine.
This is a taut mystery full of twists and turns I never saw coming. I would think I knew who the culprit was, but the author kept proving me wrong. Her writing is incredible. The story is told in two timelines and in three voices…Elizabeth’s, Harry’s, and Steph’s. It was one of those rare books that left me with some complicated feelings. You never want anyone to be harmed, but I have to be honest, Elizabeth was not a victim who was well-liked at all. I wasn’t even a big fan of hers, and I thought that was brilliant on the author’s part.
This is mystery/suspense/thriller at its very best! It will keep you up late until the night until the very last secret and betrayal is exposed!!! It’s a must-read for every mystery fan!!!! Just be prepared to do nothing else until you finish the very last word!!!!
