Exclusive to Audible! Listen to a discussion between the author and the narrator of The Widow at the end of this recording. We've all seen him: the man - the monster - staring from the front page of every newspaper, accused of a terrible crime. But what about her: the woman who grips his arm on the courtroom stairs - the wife who stands by him? Jean Taylor's life was blissfully ordinary. Nice house, nice husband. Glen was all she'd ever wanted: her Prince Charming.

In this second series, they try to get recognition and publicity, get to grips with technology, use prison-based TV shows as inspiration for forming their policy on crime and punishment and come up with a convenient catch-all solution to tackle drugs and housing.

This made me laugh out loud a lot - I listened to it on holiday and had some strange looks from people around the swimming pool.

Poor Delivery

1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 18-10-12

Unfortunately I had to give up on this because the narrator's careless delivery got on my nerves so much.
