The Widow - Fiona Barton

Everyone has seen that man - the monster - staring from the front page of every national newspaper, accused of a terrible crime.

But what about her? The woman who grips his arm on the courtroom stairs – the wife who stands by him.

Jean Taylor’s life was blissfully ordinary. Nice house, nice husband. Glen was all she’d ever wanted: her Prince Charming.

Until he became that man, the accused, that monster on the front page. Jean was married to a man everyone thought capable of unimaginable evil.

But now Glen is dead and Jean is alone for the first time, free to tell her story on her own terms.
