Many congratulations to JP Delaney whose latest thriller, The Perfect Wife is published today by Quercus and is available to buy in ebook and hardback with the paperback following in January 2020. My thanks to Ella for the invitation to take part in the publication day social media blast. My review will follow but in the meantime, a little about the book:
“There’s something I have to explain, my love,” he says, taking your hand in his. “That wasn’t a dream. It was an upload.”
Abbie wakes in a hospital bed with no memory of how she got there. The man by her side explains that he’s her husband. He’s a titan of the tech world, the founder of one of Silicon Valley’s most innovative startups. He tells Abbie she’s a gifted artist, a doting mother to their young son, and the perfect wife.
Five years ago, she suffered a terrible accident. Her return from the abyss is a miracle of science, a breakthrough in artificial intelligence that has taken him half a decade to achieve.
But as Abbie pieces together memories of her marriage, she begins questioning her husband’s motives – and his version of events. Can she trust him when he says he wants them to be together for ever? And what really happened to her, half a decade ago?
A gripping psychological thriller, perfect for fans of The Woman in the Window and The Wife Between Us.
