Summary

We promised to keep each other’s secrets. Until they found the body…

The Wife:

My husband and I are fighting for our lives in hospital after a terrible car accident. But despite my pain, all I can think about is what our families will find behind our front door. The scarf that has been all over the news, belonging to a dead young woman with honey-coloured hair. I have to speak to the police before my husband can…

The Husband:

I’m drifting in and out of consciousness, but when I hear my wife talking to the police, accusing me of the murder of an innocent woman, a cold fear grips me. I know I’ve got a temper. That I’ve not always been faithful. Will they think I killed her?

I think of my wife’s jealous streak, of the lies she’s told our loved ones. But if I tell the whole truth, they’ll look into her past. And that will destroy me, too…

Two people fighting for their lives. Two people with secrets to hide. Who will you believe?

A completely compelling and twisty thriller from number 1 bestselling author K.L. Slater. Fans of Lisa Jewell and Freida McFadden will be hooked by Husband and Wife.

as interesting as the twists are the book spends too many words to say nothin

I like that the end is not usually what you expect but the author uses too many words to say absolutely nothing. create a huge amount of suspence then at the end of the chapter say but he knew it was all his fault! it might work for sometime but every single book is the same. i simply fast forwarded to the last hour of the book and still understood the whole book. all the words in between didn't take away anything to enhance my understanding of the story.

Slow burner..

I was already on the back foot when I began listening. Not massively impressed with the author and I wasn’t sure about the narrator. I WAS SO WRONG!

I couldn’t stop listening as I just needed to know more.

Another great story from this author. The characters are well written and easy to relate to. The story has twists and turns keeping you guessing right up until the end. The narration was just perfect with a good range of characters voices with a steady and interesting flow.

Kept me guessing throughout.

A slow beginning but picked up pace and intrigue. A good plot although the characters were on the dull side. Enjoyed it.

A good listen!

A good story but a little bit laboured. And some very “convenient” bank statements and hotel records to push the plot along! An enjoyable listen nonetheless.
Another whole topic would be why, as the listener, there’s no real sympathy for the victim!

Unusually logical thriller

I liked the fact that most of the protagonists’ actions were fairly logical, which - more often than not - is not the case. My only criticism would be the lack of ‘clues’ to the guilty party until right at the end when, perhaps, it was a little too neatly tied up

Well narrated

Very slow, did not shock or excite, the early magic has gone, the same story is being retold.

Too many holes

I just cant understand the police missing so much information…. This murder would have been solved in a blink if in real world!
