Rumour has it that The Wife Between Us, will make it to the big screen. It’s no wonder. It has all the qualities of a great psychological thriller: suspense, mystery, drama and romance all in one package. It is the seventh novel by best-selling author Sarah Pekkanen and the first by her co-author and past editor of Simon & Schuster, Greer Hendricks. It goes without saying that The Wife Between Us is a page turner, but it’s more than that. It keeps us on the edge of our seats as the plot thickens and we realize that what we assumed to be true, is shrouded in mystery.
Written in the voices of two characters (there’s more to this but I can’t give it away), the book scatters hints throughout, but manages to keep all of its secrets to the end. It had me fooled with its many twists and turns, plots and sub-plots with culprits I hadn’t imagined. Authors Pekkanen and Hendricks have the winning formula for a best seller. If you liked Gone Girl, you’ll like The Wife Between Us.
