Book 29 on my “March to 100 for 2019″—Fiona Barton: The Widow—The widow of an accused child abductor faces police, the media, and an outraged public.
Married young, Jean comes to a realization over the years that her husband is many unsatisfying things including rude and domineering over her, unsteady in his employment, and delusional in his perspective of his place in the world. But when a child goes missing, evidence begins to mount of his involvement, but she staunchly defends him against his accusers.
Will Jean reveal his secrets now that he has died in a horrible accident?
The detective haunted by his failure to secure a conviction—damning evidence thrown out at trial because of the way it was gained—pursues her story, but finds himself in race against a ruthless reporter who will stoop as low as she has to get the story. The public demands answers as the missing child’s mother fans the flames.
Everyone but Jean argues loudly that her husband committed the heinous crime. But did he?
