Description

HOW DO YOU CONFRONT YOUR HUSBAND WHEN YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH?

Gripping psychological suspense from a brilliant new voice in crime fiction

'You can hear the ominous music from the first line onward - this is a fantastic thriller.' Lee Child

'An original, assured and compelling tale of obsession. Amy Lloyd is a startling new talent, destined to become a big name.' Peter James

Twenty years ago, Dennis Danson was arrested and imprisoned for the brutal murder of a young girl in Florida's Red River County. Now he's the subject of a true-crime documentary that's whipping up a frenzy online to uncover the truth and free a man who has been wrongly convicted.

A thousand miles away in England, Samantha is obsessed with Dennis's case. She exchanges letters with him, and is quickly won over by his apparent charm and kindness to her. Soon she has left her old life behind to marry him and campaign for his release.

But when the campaign is successful and Dennis is freed, Sam begins to discover new details that suggest he may not be quite so innocent after all ...

'If you're an addict of true crime documentaries, you will binge all night on The Innocent Wife. In this breathless, pounding ride, Amy Lloyd keeps us guessing about a convicted killer thrust into the world as innocent online hero and the woman who begins to reluctantly dig into his murky past.’ Julia Heaberlin, author of Black Eyed Susans

'Loved The Innocent Wife! Dark, twisted and compelling. Kept me guessing and totally gripped! 5 stars’ CJ Tudor, author of The Chalk Man

The Innocent Wife is a stunner that leads the reader down a twisty path to a surprising, yet satisfying conclusion. You won't be able to stop turning the pages!’ --Karen Dionne, author of The Marsh King's Daughter

'I devoured The Innocent Wife in one sitting! A unique setting, deeply flawed characters, a crackling mystery, and an unexpected ending make this a must-read!' Hollie Overton, author of Baby Doll.

    Started off well but sadly became more and more unbelievable and really quite poorly written.
  • Ok

    It's was ok, kept me interested but the end got a bit messy and left with several questions unanswered. Don't know if that was in preparation for a sequel or just the way the author wanted it to end.
