My Husband’s Wife by Jane Corry

I was intrigued by the title of Jane Corry’s debut psychological thriller, ‘My Husband’s Wife’, the undercurrents of emotional intrigue that it conjured up drawing me to the book in the first place.

I was intrigued by the title of Jane Corry’s debut psychological thriller, ‘My Husband’s Wife’, the undercurrents of emotional intrigue that it conjured up drawing me to the book in the first place. I wasn’t disappointed; with a cast of deeply flawed characters displaying some of the worst traits that human nature can offer, ‘My Husband’s Wife’ offered a mind-boggling array of twists and turns that kept me turning pages right to the bitter end – and what a bitter end!
We come full circle and finish where we began; Ed lying stabbed to death – and the soul searching aftermath.
Although a pager turner, I found this book deeply disturbing. On the whole I found none of the characters particularly likeable, although I feel that Lisa’s self-vindication in the case of her brother’s death was justified; and the young Carla was vulnerable and impressionable, her older self clearly a result of her upbringing. Larry however was contemptible; and Ed, narcissistic, weak and manipulative.
I give this book four out of five stars.
