Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books

This week I received an ARC of Fiona Barton's debut novel, The Widow. It's a psychological thriller due to be published by Bantam Press on 14th January 2016. There's a lot of anticipation and hype surrounding this book already and I have to say since I started reading it yesterday I can see why.
We've all seen him: the man - the monster - staring from the front page of every 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.
he became that man accused, that monster on the front page. Jean was

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