More About Woman with a Secret by Sophie Hannah
 
 
 
Overview

She's a wife.

She's a mother.

She isn't who you think she is.

Licki Clements has secrets, just like anybody else secrets she keeps from her children, from her husband, from everyone who knows her. Secrets she shares with only one person: A stranger she's never seen. A person whose voice she's never heard.

And then Nicki is arrested for murder. The murder of a man she doesn't know.

As a pair of husband-and-wife detectives investigate her every word, and as the media circle like sharks, all Nicki's secrets are laid bare illusions and deceptions that she has kept up for years. And even the truth might not be enough to save her. For although Nicki isn't guilty of homicide, she's far from innocent. . . .

For fans of The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl, and the best of Hitchcock comes an extraordinary thriller and an extraordinarily unreliable narrator from an author whose work has been described by Tana French as "like watching a nightmare come to life.""

The murder of outspoken newspaper columnist Damon Blundy jump-starts Hannah’s convoluted ninth mystery featuring married British cops Simon Waterhouse and Charlotte “Charlie” Zailer (after The Carrier). Nicki Clements, a mother of two and a less-than-faithful wife who has recently moved from London to rural Spilling, carried on an online affair with a man she believes is Blundy (neither used real names). Clements attracts the attention of Waterhouse’s team when she speeds away from Blundy’s house, where the police have stopped traffic, outside Spilling. Waterhouse, who has become less likable as the series progresses, is obsessed with the message scrawled near Blundy’s body—“he is no less dead”—as well as the oddly staged murder scene. Waterhouse sifts through Blundy’s detractors, from a former British MP and potential lover to a disgraced sprinter, and Clements’s life slowly unravels. In the end, readers will struggle to care about any of these characters or their so-called secrets. (Aug.)
