    Description

    He jumped to his death in front of witnesses. Now his wife is charged with murder.

    Five years ago, Erin Kennedy moved to New York following a family tragedy. She now lives happily with her detective husband in the scenic seaside town of Newport, Long Island. When Erin answers the door to Danny's police colleagues one morning, it's the start of an ordinary day. But behind her, Danny walks to the window of their fourth-floor apartment and jumps to his death.

    Eighteen months later, Erin is in court, charged with her husband's murder. Over that year and a half, Erin has learned things about Danny she could never have imagined. She thought he was perfect. She thought their life was perfect. 

    But it was all built on the perfect lie.

    Mixed Bag at the end of the 🌈

    Joe Spain deserves a 🏆 for somehow managing to include EVERY SINGLE front page political and social cliche imaginable. Bravo; that couldn’t have been easy.
    *No Spoilers*
    Truly, this is a pretty anti-🇺🇸 book. Like Erin’s sister, I kinda just wanted her to go bank to Ireland. I’m pretty secure in my nationality, otherwise I would’ve just given up a few hours in. However, by then, I was into the plot and my craving for a decent story kept me listening.

    All that said, I enjoyed the character development, narrator (although Ireland snuck into American character voices occasionally), and overall premise. I’m just over the “cops are bad, people with money are bad, entitlement and privilege” low hanging fruit that every new release is not just peppered with, but splattered with 🍅🍎🫐🤮

    great, riveting writing, one flaw

    I found the trial dialogue unbelievable. They would use names. I know it's to keep the reader guessing, but I found it distracting and annoying.

    A real page turner!

    This is the first time I’ve listened to anything by this author and I’m going to go back and listen to all of the previous novels. This novel, in particular, should be made into a movie. It has a Hitchcockian quality, leaving the reader never quite sure of who is who and what really happened until the end.

    My only feedback is as follows:

    (1) The tagline on the front cover of the book is truly misleading.

    (2) I’ve gotten pretty frustrated lately with authors writing stories that take place in America and not having Americans review it for the nuances of American English prior to publication.

    Here are some American nuances.

    We don’t say “in hand”. We say on hand. For example, Gloria says “ he probably used whatever wrapping paper he had in hand”.

    We don’t say “compensation prize“. We say “consolation prize“.

    Last but not least, Americans don’t say “he should have done”. This is definitely British English. Americans would just say “he should have”.

    We Can always use more of Jo Spain!

    I usually don't write reviews but was so incensed by the 'idiot' review written before mine (Tawny) that I would just like to say that I love my Country and to call this book anti-American is about as intelligent as the person who wrote it and then decorated it w/American flags and vomiting emoji's. Also, there have always been books that criticize the entitled and the wealthy. I could name them for you but I am certain it would be pointless but read The Great Gatsby for a start. It's not much longer than a People magazine. I am not entitled but I have enough to buy anything I need. Jo Spain doesn't deserve her excellent writing criticized by the obviously entitled, who can't take criticism themselves and need to use vomiting characters to make their point. Her writing is always worth reading.
