Read The Widower's Wife Online Free - Ana Bacon, a young housewife, tumbles off a cruise ship into the dark and deadly waters, but did she take her secrets with her?
Investigator Ryan Monahan is a numbers man. So when his company sends him the Bacon case, which could net a ten million dollar payout, Monahan doubts that her death is just a tragic accident. But the husband has a substantial alibi and a number of witnesses claim to have seen Ana fall. So the official ruling seems to be substantiated.
Still, the more Monahan uncovers about Ana’s life, the more he realizes how many people would kill to keep her secrets hidden. And the closer he gets to the truth, the greater the odds grow that he, too, will take a fatal fall.
Cate Holahan looks at the dark underbelly of a marriage from the perspectives of the detective and the victim in her tense and enthralling page-turner, The Widower's Wife.

I’m giving this book two stars because the author used my favorite word – “penultimate.” I was...

This is a fast-paced read about a woman in jeopardy. I loved the way I never knew what would happen next. There were some really intense scenes and a satisfying villain. I also liked the whole Brazilian angle of the story, which added something unexpected. A good read.
