The Widow by Fiona Barton

This book is a psychological thriller about the disappearance of a little girl named Bella. The main suspect is Glenn who is the husband of the main character Jean.   The book is one of those “did he do it?” types.

This story is mainly presented from the voice of Jean and it’s her point of view that steers this story.   We go back in time and revthe widowiew many aspects of their relationship while layering clues about Bella’s abduction. Jeans personality undergoes a transformation over time and this plays a big part in the story.

The book was well written and I was very motivated to finish. I preferred “Gone Girl” and “The Girl on the Train” which are from a similar genre.  “The Widow” is a worthy debut book from Fiona Barton and I look forward to her next novel.
