A RICHARD & JUDY BOOK CLUB PICK AND SUNDAY TIMES TOP TEN BESTSELLER

'Wow. This one will keep your bedside light on until the small hours - it's unputdownable.'
Richard & Judy

For fans of Apple Tree Yard and The Silent Wife, The Loving Husband draws readers into a marriage where nothing is as it seems...

Fran Hall and her husband Nathan have moved with their two children to a farmhouse on the edge of the Fens - a chance to get away from London and have a fresh start.

But when Fran wakes one night to find Nathan gone, she makes a devastating discovery. As questions about her husband and her relationships start to mount, Fran's life begins to spiral out of control.

What is she hiding from the police about her marriage, and does she really know the man she shared her bed with?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Wow. This one will keep your bedside light on until the small hours - it's unputdownable. * Richard & Judy *
Kent is an extremely fine writer and makes terrific use in particular of the Fens' waterlogged, empty landscape in which secrets can be easily buried if never quite forgotten...Terrifyingly good * Metro *
Shocking in the extreme. The Loving Husband is a twisted psychological thriller * Sun *
Atmospheric and psychologically acute throughout * Sunday Times *
Christobel Kent is one of our most assured thriller writers. The Loving Husband is a perfectly paced and plotted novel * Good Housekeeping *
Firmly in the currently fashionable "domestic noir" genre, but this is no catchpenny trend-chasing; Kent effortlessly rises above other entries in the field . . . the familiar is confronted and inverted and Kent's ace in the hole is her keen penetration of the characters' psychology, particularly that of beleaguered heroine Fran -- Barry Forshaw * Financial Times *
Unsettling domestic thriller . . . Spooky and skilfully written, this is one to race through * Sunday Mirror *
Fans of a good old-fashioned page-turner will love this * Closer *
A finely-crafted series of flashbacks . . . excellent thriller . . . tense, dense, extremely well-plotted and beautifully written, this is a fine example of the Domestic Noir genre * Sunday Irish Independent *
A tautly plotted trail of red herrings, scares and eventual revelations that keep the Gone Girl fever-type buzz alive -- Jon Wise * Weekend Sport *
A clever and claustrophobic tale * Literary Review *
[A] compulsive psychological thriller about family, secrets and the lies we tell ourselves...With a distinctive style and menacing plot, Kent delivers a mesmerising read * Peterborough Telegraph *
Brilliant. A spooky, gripping and affecting story * Louise Doughty, author of APPLE TREE YARD on The Crooked House *
An utterly compulsive psychological thriller. I loved it * S. J. Watson, author of BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP on The Crooked House *
Echoes of Christie and du Maurier in this fine thriller * Sunday Times on The Crooked House *
Oh my goodness - what a book! So beautifully tense . . . just glorious * Clare Mackintosh, author of I LET YOU GO, on The Crooked House *
claustrophobic... a compelling story that twists and turns * Essex Life *
A truly chilling, absorbing read' * Kirkus *

“The most cliche thriller”

This has a very samey storyline, how many books have you read where a husband has a secret second life?

I did enjoy this for a good while but it got to the point where the subjects of the novel got to me in a... More
