The Wife Who Knew Too Much by Michele Campbell is a totally gripping contemporary psychological crime thriller that will consume you from the start. The farther in you read, the faster your pulse will become.
Michele Campbell has constructed a marvellous plotline. She manipulated my emotions and responses along the way. I loyally followed her through red herrings and blind alleyways. My reaction to her characters was led by the author’s mighty pen.
Money and power are driving forces for some. As they rule and corrupt lives, there is only one way to go – downwards to crash and burn. In contrast there are pure hearts led by the love of others. Money and power mean nothing. Good hearts and pure lives are top of the list.
There is the question of trust. Neither the reader nor the lead character can work out who is trustworthy. Suspicion and deception are the order of the day. As the noose tightens, it becomes harder to see the path ahead.
The Wife Who Knew Too Much was an exciting read. I failed to predict the perpetrator or the outcome. I thoroughly enjoyed the novel as it consumed my every waking moment.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
