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

The Must-Read Summer Thriller of 2016

Gone Girl. Luckiest Girl Alive. The Girl on the Train. It may not have “Girl” in the title, but Wendy Walker’s ALL IS NOT FORGOTTEN is destined to be Summer 2016’s blockbuster thriller. In fact, Reese Witherspoon already snapped up the film rights and is in talks to star.

In the small, affluent town of Fairview, Connecticut, a teenage girl named Jenny Kramer is attacked at a local party and in the hours immediately after, she is given a controversial drug to medically erase her memory of the violent assault. Except she can’t really forget and the person narrating the story wants her to remember what happened. Why? You’ll have to read it to find out!

Your fellow librarians are already crazy about it:

I’m already halfway through ALL IS NOT FORGOTTEN and am absolutely loving it – I’m a sucker for dark, twisty, intricately-plotted psychological thrillers, so this is right in my wheelhouse. I can tell that all of Wendy Walker’s threads are carefully placed, and I can’t wait until the finish when she weaves them all together. I’m betting we’ll be seeing this title in a LOT of beach bags over the summer.” — Gregg Winsor, Johnson County Public Library, Overland Park KS

Thriller Thursday (1/14/16 Edition)

Our first #ThrillerThursday titles of the new year ALL have *starred reviews* and major accolades:

ONCE A CROOKED MAN by David McCallum
“David McCallum — yes, actor David McCallum of ‘The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’ and ‘NCIS’ fame — confidently embarks on a second career in his highly entertaining debut that mixes the espionage novel with the mystery thriller. While occasional bits of humor add levity to the plot, McCallum keeps a near hard-boiled edge to the story. It seems McCallum had a lot of fun writing ONCE A CROOKED MAN, as will his readers devouring his energetic novel.” — Associated Press

VAGABOND by Gerald Seymour
A legendary spy handler is called out of retirement for the most dangerous and high-stakes operation of his career. “British spymaster Seymour delivers another first-rate effort—this one focused on an old-fashioned hero facing up to new challenges.”Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“Seymour’s legion of fans will love VAGABOND.” — Booklist, starred review

EVEN THE DEAD by Benjamin Black
Solving a case has a profound effect on pathologist Quirke in this Dublin-set thriller. “Black fashions a meticulously written installment notable for its palpable sense of place, a slate of fully drawn characters, and a meaningful denouement.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review
