Review

#1 Globe and Mail Fiction Bestseller
#1 Toronto Star Fiction Bestseller
Maclean’s Fiction Bestseller


Praise for The Widow:

“If you liked Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, you might want to pick up The Widow by Fiona Barton. Engrossing. Suspenseful.”—Stephen King

“Fiona Barton's The Widow is a fast-paced, heart-stopping debut. Jean Taylor--the widow--is both heroine and anti-heroine, naive and savvy, dominated and dominating; in short, utterly compelling. Sure to thrill fans of The Girl on the Train and The Husband's Secret, I raced through this in one nail-biting sitting.”—Catherine McKenzie, international bestselling author of Hidden and Smoke

“A marriage is a public union, but can also act as a wall hiding an inner world of secrets. Fiona Barton's The Widow grabs hold of this insight and runs with it, twisting all the way to the end.” —Andrew Pyper, #1 bestselling author of The Demonologist and The Damned

“[A] twisty tale…with a mesmerizing if unreliable narrator…that will blow your mind.”—Oprah.com

“[Jean is] a fascinating puzzle…Barton knows how to ramp up tension.”—The New York Times Book Review

Gone Girl fans will relish this taut psychological thriller from Fiona Barton.”US Weekly  

“The dance between the characters is so interesting that you keep reading to learn how they reveal themselves to one another.”—Newsday 

 “A fast-paced, highly readable novel.”The Washington Times 

“Riding the streak of humdinger, unreliably narrated mysteries started by Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, Fiona Barton's debut, The Widow, has you right where it wants you from the start.”The Chicago Tribune

“A twisted psychological thriller you’ll have trouble putting down.”—People 

“Switching between various vantage points—The Reporter, The Detective, The Mother—and hopscotching across timelines, Barton skillfully loops her narrative noose...a smartly crafted, compulsively readable tale about the lies people tell each other, and themselves, when the truth is the last thing they really want to know.”—Entertainment Weekly
 
“A gripping psychological thriller that looks beneath the surface of a crime, and sheds brilliant light on the victims, perpetrator, the police, and everyone else involved.”Huffington Post

“Barton has written a compelling look inside a horrible crime. While it could be devoured in one heart-stopping gulp, this is a book best savoured slowly, with the time to luxuriate in the myriad carefully placed details—even an act so automatic as picking up a piece of litter will eventually have a major impact later in the saga”Maclean’s
 
“Clever and creepy, this English first novel has the shape of a stealth bestseller, another Girl on the Train perhaps.”—Toronto Star
 
The Widow is compelling and top-notch!”The National Post
 
“Fiona Barton’s debut novel, The Widow, is being compared to Gone GirlBefore I Go To Sleep and The Girl on the Train. It’s actually better than them all.”—The Star-Telegram

“It's not unusual for a "much anticipated" thriller to come along boasting of its own brilliance, with quick-sell words like "gripping" slashed across its cover. Only very rarely do these words ring true, but within the first few pages, it is clear Fiona Burton's debut The Widow is deserving of its accolades… The Widow is feminist, weighty and scarily plausible. It will haunt you.”—The Independent (UK)
