A terrifyingly gripping thriller of East End violence and corruption. Eleven years ago Marie Carter was convicted of killing her two best friends. And she's paid the price. Now she is being released from prison. It's time to go home. But life has moved on, and Marie has nowhere to go. Her parents have disowned her; her friends have abandoned her; even her kids don't want to know. But some people out there are watching her, following her every move - they know that Marie Carter wants retribution.

Top 5

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Can't as it's an autobiography type and for entertainment value, you wouldn't need to anyway!

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The parts about dating after divorce

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Brandis hilarious blunders / it's divorce not cancer!

Any additional comments?

Brandi is so funny and I would say every woman and most men will relate to her story, filter free as always she's bloomin hilarious 😂

Would you consider the audio edition of The Husband's Secret to be better than the print version?

Definitely

What did you like best about this story?

The intriguing characters and the fabulous twisting plot, and the brilliantly written link between the characters 😀

Have you listened to any of Caroline Lee’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes, this one is best so far, particularly as I feel it involves more depth to the male characters than other books by this author

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

So much more than just a husbands secret......

Brilliant listen, highly recommended and appreciated, 5 stars all the way!!

He was the Western convert who would plunge deep inside al-Qaeda. He named his first son Osama after 9/11 and became a Jihadist. But then - after a sudden loss of faith - Morten Storm made a life-changing decision. He became a double agent and joined the CIA, MI6 and MI5. Filled with hair-raising close calls and deception, Storm's story builds to the climactic finale when he must betray his friend and mentor al-Awlaki - al-Qaeda's biggest threat to the West.

interesting story which came across very honest with the author admitting to all his bad deeds aa well as his good ones that followed, I personally feel for all his efforts he has not been rewarded or treated nor protected adequately by the government agencies who he helped so much to catch terrorists, gripping story too, highly recommended x

Only minutes after United 175 plowed into the World Trade Center's South Tower, people in positions of power correctly suspected who was behind the assault: Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda. But it would be 18 months after September 11 before investigators would capture the actual mastermind of the attacks, the man behind bin Laden himself: Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

A gothic delight from Karen Maitland, author of the best-selling and much-loved Company of Liars, that will delight fans of Game of Thrones, The Silent Companions or fans of Deborah Harkness seeking a new, dark fix this Halloween. Never trust your secrets to a Raven when you are not its true master....
