The Widow (Large Print / Library Binding)
March 2016 Indie Next List
“Readers on the hunt for the newest, hottest thriller can take heart: Barton's debut novel is impeccably paced and quietly terrifying, sure to fill any void left after reading The Girl on the Train. Jean Taylor is reeling over the loss of her husband, but the man she knows and the man the police know are two very different people. Told in alternating voices, The Widow is perfect for fans of Paula Hawkins and Tana French and will have readers on the edge of their seats.”
— Annie B. Jones (W), The Bookshelf, Thomasville, GA
When the police started asking questions, Jean Taylor changed into a woman with the ability to carry on when bad things began to happen. But that woman's husband died last week, and Jean doesn t have to be her anymore. There's a lot Jean hasn t said over the years about the crime her husband was suspected of committing. She was too busy being the perfect wife, standing by her man while living with the accusing glares and the anonymous harassment.
