It's a good read. I enjoyed it enough to hunt down other books by Lucy Clarke. Not perfect, but much better than the Publishers Weekly review above.

One of the best books I have read! What a gripping tale of a woman having been deceived by the lies of her husband who has just died. This book will keep you reading and guessing till the very end. I have never read this author before, but she is an excellent writer.
