Synopsis of The Widow

There’s a lot Jean hasn’t said over the years about the crime her husband was suspected of committing. She was too busy being the perfect wife, standing by her man while living with the accusing glares and the anonymous harassment.

Now her husband is dead, and there’s no reason to stay quiet. There are people who want to hear her story. They want to know what it was like living with that man. She can tell them that there were secrets. There always are in a marriage.

The truth—that’s all anyone wants. But the one lesson Jean has learned in the last few years is that she can make people believe anything…

My review

The Widow by Fiona Barton review

Quite an original concept. La viuda, by Fiona Barton, apart from being the title, is truly a complex and disconcerting character.

The suspense here is not given by the criminal case itself, but by what the widow knows or doesn’t know about it. Even at the end, it’s not clear (at least for me) if she’s a widow by accident or by intent.

Interesting and subject to interpretation.
