Stars & Movie News for THE WIFE BETWEEN US

Husband dumps troublesome first wife then gets a new wife who adores him. The first wife is bitterly obsessed with the other woman. Sound familiar? That might look like what happens here, but maybe it’s not…

Book-editor-turned-debut-novelist Greer Hendricks and bestselling author Sarah Pekkanen team up to deliver one of Winter 2018’s most gripping thrillers, THE WIFE BETWEEN US.

A novel of suspense that explores the complexities of marriage and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love, THE WIFE BETWEEN US has two starred reviews and the producer of THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN snapped up the movie rights for a big screen adaptation.

“Readers who were enthralled by B.A. Paris’s BEHIND CLOSED DOORS and Gillian Flynn’s GONE GIRL will love the skewed psychology and shifting perspectives of this domestic thriller.” — Library Journal, starred review

“[A] jaw-dropping psychological thriller. This is not another eye-rolling story about the jealous ex-wife stalking her replacement, as readers will discover as Vanessa’s motivations are revealed. Unforgettable twists lead to shocking revelations all the way through the epilogue.” — Publishers Weekly, boxed & starred review

DARK IN DEATH by J.D. Robb
During a screening of Psycho in midtown, someone sunk an ice pick into the back of Chanel Rylan’s neck, then disappeared quietly into the crowds in Times Square. As Lieutenant Eve Dallas puzzles over a homicide that seems carefully planned and yet oddly personal, she receives a tip from an unexpected source: an author of police thrillers who recognizes the crime—from the pages of her own book. “Robb expertly ratchets up the suspense as the endgame approaches in this deadly chess match between Eve and her cunning opponent.” — Publishers Weekly
