NOW A USA TODAY AND PUBLISHERS WEEKLY BESTSELLER "Every page is packed with both peril and exquisite writing, and the novel reads like a wholly unique cross between Somewhere in Time and Memento. You won't be able to put it down " (David Bell, author of Since She Went Away)
From bestselling author A.J. Banner comes a dazzling new novel of psychological suspense in the vein of S.J. Watson's Before I Go to Sleep
and Mary Kubica's The Good Girl
that questions just how much we can trust the people around us.
Thirty-four-year-old marine biologist Kyra Winthrop remembers nothing about the diving accident that left her with a complex form of memory loss. With only brief flashes of the last few years of her life, her world has narrowed to a few close friendships on the island where she lives with her devoted husband, Jacob.
But all is not what it seems. Kyra begins to have visions--or are they memories?--of a rocky marriage, broken promises, and cryptic relationships with the island residents, whom she believes to be her friends.
As Kyra races to uncover her past, the truth becomes a terrifying nightmare. A twisty, immersive thriller, The Twilight Wife
will keep readers enthralled through the final, shocking twist.

Banner (The Good Neighbor) milks every ounce of suspense out of this harrowing plot that reveals memory to be both unreliable and impossible to fully wash away. Kyra Winthrop is a 34-year-old marine biologist who lives on a secluded island in the Pacific Northwest with her ever-present husband, Jacob. After a diving accident leaves her with memory loss, she cant remember the last four years and spends her days hoping to regain her past. As she tries to cope, memoriesand eerie recurring dreamsbegin to come back but also bring more questions than answers. What was her relationship to her husbands friend Aiden? Why does she think there were more people involved in her accident than shes been told? Not all on the island, and in her marriage, is what it seems. Overly emotive writingIm infused with excitement, trepidation, and fearand a twist that can be seen coming from very early on keep this from being a riveting thriller. However, Kyra is a believable, empathetic protagonist, and Banners ability to maintain tension while teasing out the truth of her hazy past will keep readers engaged. (Dec.)
