When Deborah, an unpopular seventeen-year-old, meets the charming and handsome Larry, he sweeps her off her feet. The trouble is Larry has a secret.
Then a series of grisly murders cast a shadow over everything.
As Deborah’s world starts to fall apart she begins to suspect the man she loves of a terrible betrayal. And to keep their marriage alive, sacrifices must be made.
A compelling, psychological thriller that unpicks what goes on behind closed doors and reminds us that sometimes the worst crimes can take place closer to home than you think.
The Optician’s Wife is a powerful psychological thriller by the best-selling author of Carrion, The Quiet Ones and Beneath The Watery Moon. If you are a fan of authors like Angela Marsons, Kathryn Croft, Helen Durrant, Barbara Vine or Rachel Abbott you will be gripped by this brilliant and bracing psychological thriller.
Having read and enjoyed The Quiet Ones I was looking forward to reading the advance copy I received and I can honestly said there was nothing I did not enjoy about this book.
The plot, the writing style and the pace is brilliant and all this combined just makes for a superb read, that deserves a spot in the bestseller charts. Highly recommend it and I am now bumping the others by Betsy up my TBR list.
The mentions at the end of the book were great to read and so nice to see people I know either virtually or in person getting some very well deserved praise
