THE SUNDAY TIMES AND NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER, AND RICHARD & JUDY BOOK CLUB PICK 'If you liked GONE GIRL and THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN, you might want to pick up THE WIDOW by Fiona Barton. Engrossing. Suspenseful' Stephen King 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. Until he became that man accused, that monster on the front page. Jean was married to a man everyone thought capable of unimaginable evil. But now Glen is dead and she's alone for the first time, free to tell her story on her own terms. Jean Taylor is going to tell us what she knows. ***** 'The book really got under my skin and had me turning pages at a rate of knots, unable to tear myself away.' ***** 'An utterly addictive read that I couldn't put down.' ***** 'Clever twists and turns . . . kept me on my toes until the end.' Read Fiona Barton's other tantalising thrillers: THE CHILD, THE SUSPECT and LOCAL GONE MISSING - out now.

Feted as this years The Girl on the Train * OBSERVER * The big thriller of the year * STYLIST * The ultimate psychological thriller. Barton carefully unspools this dark, intimate tale of a terrible crime, a stifling marriage, and the lies spouses tell not just to each other, but to themselves in order to make it through. The ending totally blew me away. * LISA GARDNER * The most buzzed about book of 2016 * HEAT * Stunning from start to finish. I devoured it in one sitting. The best book I've read this year. If you liked GONE GIRL, you'll love this. Fiona Barton is a major new talent. * M J Arlidge * An unsettling, compulsive tale * GOOD HOUSEKEEPING * Dark, compelling and utterly unputdownable. My book of the year so far * C. L. Taylor, author of THE ACCIDENT and THE LIE * A book youll drop everything to whip through * GLAMOUR * A cleverly conceived, interesting novel * LITERARY REVIEW * A complex, intriguing heroine and a dark, unsettling story makes this a real page-turner. * Woman & Home * A skilful, tautly written thriller * RED * She tells her tale with a realism and restraint that add to its shattering impact * PUBLISHERS WEEKLY * A brilliant, enthralling debut * Jill Mansell * A terrifically chilling exploration of the darkness at the heart of a seemingly ordinary marriage, the life of quiet desperation behind a neat suburban door. Gripping and horribly plausible * Tammy Cohen * A terrifically chilling exploration of the darkness at the heart of a seemingly ordinary marriage, the life of quiet desperation behind a neat suburban door.

Her second novel, The Child, and her third, The Suspect, were both bestsellers. Born in Cambridge, Fiona currently lives on the south coast in West Sussex.
