Could the perfect wife also be the perfect killer? An addictive, beautifully written thriller from one of Britain’s most acclaimed crime writers

PERFECT WIFE. PERFECT KILLER?
From the two-time winner of the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award
Susie Harriot, a respected psychiatrist, has been convicted of the brutal murder of a serial killer in her care. It looks certain that she will be given a life sentence, depriving her of her home, her family and her two-year-old daughter.

Susie’s husband, Lachlan, is convinced she is innocent and is desperate to prove it. Each night, he climbs the stairs to her study and goes through her papers – her case notes, her interviews, and the press cuttings from the trial.

But the more Lachlan discovers, the more he suspects that his wife has been hiding a dark secret.
