My only complaint, and honestly the reason why this book isn't a four star read, is that the book is entirely too long. Brookmyre’s exploration of the female tendency to allow self-doubt to infiltrate and concede fault when we know it isn’t warranted is as gripping and harrowing as any tale of murder. My husband enjoyed reading this book telling the story behind the Black Widow and who she came in contact with.

Don’t misunderstand: BLACK WIDOW is wholly engaging and moves at a pace that’s comparable to its psychological thriller peers, it’s simply not a book I found myself wanting to binge-read; I took my time with this read, savoring each page and letting myself get lost in its dark maze—and the payoff for this journey was absolutely worth it.

Marvel Platinum proudly presents the very best Black Widow stories from the House of Ideas, including her first appearance and initial battles with Iron Man!

Ognuna delle tre vedove dà un racconto della storia e ogni particolare aiuta il lettore ad addentrarsi nei meandri del fanatismo religioso che fa da sfondo all'intera storia. The more I read, the more I was hooked Crime Review Black Widow is a stand-out thriller, reminiscent of the best of Nordic Noir but with its own vivid landscape Renee Knight (author of Disclaimer) Tense, intense and quite, quite brilliant Jenny Colgan Has all the verbal and narrative energy of his best work.

Coffee machines in Utah also serve Postum (a drink that no one in Utah has consumed since 1984) because, you see, Latter-day Saints don't drink coffee. Brookmyre builds layers of intrigue like a chef crafting a multilayer cake, with each layer providing another tantalizing clue or red herring to keep readers guessing.It soon becomes apparent that there is tension between the wives and that they do not trust one another and are quite happy to point the finger. A crime novelist with a flair for psychological thrillers tinged with a wicked pinch of black comedy, Chris (Christopher) Brookmyre made his name with a series of novels featuring detective Jack Parlabane (a character he said he based in part on Douglas Adams’ Ford Prefect). The mainstream Mormons she describes, however, are a caricature based on images of 19th century early Utah settlers and an amalgamation of early (largely discredited or abandoned) LDS church writings. I liked Rachel and Emily, but Tina's character seemed somewhat out of Blake's lane and just didn't fit, which lost me a bit.

There are no cuffs on my wrists but I can still feel the cold steel like I can still feel the sting of humiliation that comes with wearing them. Told in elegant slices, cutting between a court room trial and the events surrounding it, the story’s characters are compelling and the mystery is evoked with scalpel-like precision by the talented Brookmyre.

As the police investigate and question each wife, the women also wonder which of them killed Blake and why.
