Summary

An Amazon Charts bestseller.

From the bestselling author of The Neon Lawyer comes a gripping thriller about a prosecutor confronted with the darkest part of her past and the worst fears for her future....

Fourteen years ago, prosecutor Jessica Yardley's husband went to prison for a series of brutal murders. She's finally created a life with her daughter and is a well-respected attorney. She's moving on. But when a new rash of homicides has her ex-husband, Eddie, written all over them - the nightmares of her past come back to life.

The FBI asks Jessica to get involved in the hunt for this copycat killer - which means visiting her ex and collaborating with the man who tore her life apart.

As the copycat's motives become clearer, the new life Jessica created for herself gets darker. She must ask herself who she can trust and if she's capable of stopping the killer - a man whose every crime is a bloody valentine from a twisted mastermind she's afraid she may never escape.

A powerful legal thriller!

All of author Victor Methos' audio novels are in my Audible library and I gave high ratings to most. This is a special novel in that it has more gravitas than the earlier ones. The very end is really special; it's a major plot twist. I look forward to the next novel in the series. Brittany Pressley's narration is perfect.

Holy Moly!!

I must be honest, I loved this book so much more than i expected to! This was my Kindle First pick for January and the audio just came out yesterday (March 2, 2020). This was such a great book!!! I see it may be part of a series! I can not wait until the next one! I really like Jessica Yardley!

I love the layout of the book. We actually find out who the bad guy is halfway through the book, the rest of the book is the trial. Wow! It was such a great book!

That ending!!!! I never expected that!!!!

Narrator: I usually have a love/hate relationship with Brittany Pressley. More hate then love. But she did a wonderful job with this book. It seems she gets better as time goes on. She is the perfect Jessica Yardley!

This is a 5* book all the way around!!

Finally, a thriller worthy of being called that!!

I listen to an average of 3-4 audiobooks a week and have been disappointed in quite a few lately. I love psychological thrillers and this one definitely fit under this category
It is a well written thriller with lots of unexpected twists and interesting, likable, smart characters.
The narrator is excellent as always.
I devoured this book in a day.
I agree with another reviewer, I liked the fact that there were no unnecessary “F-bombs” nor explicit sex scenes.
I will most definitely read more books by this author.

Suspenseful

Brittney Pressley has to be one of the best narrators, her ability to change her voice n caltureeach character makes it a pleasure to hear. The Killers wife is suspenseful couldn't stop hearing it sat in my car listening even though I reached my destination. This book won't disappoint...

Excellent continued suspense held

I did peg the story line almost to a T but nevertheless I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the book. Great twists. My all time favorite was the back & forth bantering scene in the courtroom with the objections! 😅 CLASSIC! (Been there! LOL)

I do recommend this book. A quick, fun, easy read. 👍

A Killer's Wife

I would recommend this book for anyone who is a fan of TV shows like "Criminal Minds" or "Law and Order". This book was a mix of courtroom drama and the search for a serial killer. It was not gruesome like a lot of these types of books are, but instead was more of a psychological drama.

The story takes many twists and turns along the way and the way that the author kept the reader guessing throughout the book up until the very end kept my attention throughout. This book approached the serial killer aspect from a unique (at least to me) angle, focusing a lot on the family of the serial killer and really bringing them to life. The author did a great job in weaving this tale and I will definitely look for more of his books.

The narrator, Brittany Pressley, did a great job in her performance and really added a lot to my enjoyment of the book. Her voices for the different characters was perfect and the killer's voice had just the right amount of creepiness to it to make it more realistic.

Do it again Victor.

A surprise for sure. I do wish that the newest book release would have been a Jon Stanton though. Still waiting.
