Dexter as written by Gillian Flynn - introducing the next generation of domestic thriller.

Every marriage has secrets. Everyone has flaws. Your wife isn't perfect - you know that - but then again nor are you.

But now a serial killer is on the loose in your small town, preying on young women. Fear is driving your well-behaved young daughter off the rails, and you find yourself in bed late at night, looking at the woman who lies asleep beside you.

Because you thought you knew the worst about her. The truth is you know nothing at all.

Reviews

An assured and deliciously engrossing debut. You'll surely devour My Lovely Wife, but it will linger long after you've reached the last page

Sarah Pinborough

Wow! My Lovely Wife is a stunner - full of twists, well-drawn characters, and riveting suspense

Harlan Coben

The twist at the end of the first chapter made me read through the night. Clever. Manipulative. Dark. Disturbing. What more can you ask for?

Jane Corry

I loved this this brilliantly dark and twisted novel. One of the best books I've read this year

C.J. Tudor, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Chalk Man

Dark, twisted-and impossible to put down. A wickedly plotted and suspenseful psychological thriller

Meg Gardiner
