From the bestselling author behind the addictive Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning HBO series Big Little Lies. The Husband's Secret will have you on the edge of your seat . . . Speak up and hurt the ones you love most - or stay silent and hide a crime? Mother of three and wife of John-Paul, Cecilia discovers an old envelope in the attic. Written in her husband's hand, it says: to be opened only in the event of my death. Curious, she opens it - and time stops. John-Paul's letter confesses to a terrible mistake which, if revealed, would wreck their family as well as the lives of others. Cecilia wants to do the right thing, but right for who? If she protects her family by staying silent, the truth will worm through her heart. But if she reveals her husband's secret, she will hurt those she loves most . . . 'A staggeringly brilliant novel.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Husband's Secret is a staggeringly brilliant novel. It is literally unputdownable -- Sophie Hannah
The story is cleverly plotted, full of suspense and so well-written that it pulls you in from the first page * Sunday Mirror *
If you like Jodi Picoult, you'll love this addictive new book * Essentials *
Dark and compelling, this is a must read * Sun *
The writing is beautiful: sometimes funny, sometimes sad but always compelling * Good Housekeeping *
This is such a clever idea. This is powerful, moving and gripping stuff * Star Magazine *
It's a tense, page-turning story which gradually draws everyone together in a devastating climax. The writing is insightful on the subjects of families and friends, parents and children, husbands and wives. But what makes this a great read are the agonising dilemmas the characters face over blame and guilt, forgiveness and retribution, love and betrayal * The Mail on Sunday, You Magazine *
The book's finely-wrought tension holds up until the final page * The Telegraph *
Fresh, very funny and entertaining, but also intelligent and unsentimental * Marian Keyes on Three Wishes *
Fascinating and compassionate * Daily Telegraph on The Hypnotist's Love Story *
A bittersweet tale by a gifted writer * Women's Weekly on What Alice Forgot *

“Amazing!”

A brilliant book I would recommend to anyone. I read it in less than 2 days and really wished I could have made it last longer to dwell on it more in the inbetween reading times. It's a book that you think is... More
