My rating: 5 of 5 stars
“The Wives” is a thriller in the best tradition of Alfred Hitchcock, it’s the kind of book that’s nearly impossible to put down.
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Seth live in a polygamy relationship. The only thing that all three women have in common is Seth. They have never met, live in different cities, have distinct hobbies and careers, they never contacted each other, and more than that – they do not even know each other’s names. However, this idyllic arrangement is about to hit an iceberg. Buckle up your belts – you’re in for a mystifying ride.
This novel is amazing suspense, it has everything: unreliable narrator, twisty turns, “what in the world?” moments. A perfect marriage/relationship/arrangement that is a lot more then meets the eye. The best part about this novel is the punches never stop coming. Even when I neared the end – BOOM another big reveal. I’m very good at predicting the ending, and with this book, I’ve made many assumptions, several guesses as to what is going on – and yet I was still so wrong! Thank you NetGalley and Graydon House publisher for a free and advanced copy of the novel, and Tarryn Fisher for a hopelessly tragically perfect thriller.
