Today I’m sharing tidbits from The Other Woman’s House, a suspense thriller by Sophie Hannah.
Book Description: The latest gripping psychological thriller from the internationally bestselling author of The Wrong Mother and The Cradle in the Grave
Featuring the return of detectives Charlie Zailer and Simon Waterhouse, Sophie Hannah’s latest novel offers the spine-tingling thrills her ever-increasing fan base adores.
It’s past midnight, but Connie Bowskill can’t sleep. To pass the time, she logs on to a real estate website in search of a particular house, one she is obsessed with for reasons she’s too scared to even admit to herself. As she clicks through the virtual tour, she comes across a scene from a nightmare: a woman lying facedown on the living room floor in a pool of blood. But when she returns to show her husband, there is no body, no blood—just a perfectly ordinary room. With plot twists that will keep readers up all night, The Other Woman’s House is another unforgettable story by a new master of the crime novel.
Beginning: I’m going to be killed because of a family called the Gilpatricks.
P. 56: Charlie sighed. Was she expecting too much? After years of avoiding all physical contact with her, Simon had decided last year that it was time they consummated their relationship.
I love this series of books! Besides new characters with new mysteries, we have the recurring characters, like Simon and Charlie: quirky and funny, too.
