The Wife

Alafair Burke

When Angela met NYU professor Jason Powell while catering a dinner party in East Hampton, she assumed their romance would be a short-lived fling. Six years later, their marriage is still going strong. When a college intern makes an accusation against Jason, and another woman, Kerry Lynch, comes forward with an even more troubling allegation, their perfect life begins to unravel. When Kerry disappears, Angela is forced to take a closer look at the man she married. And when she is asked to defend Jason in court, she realizes that her loyalty to her husband could unearth old secrets. A stunning domestic thriller from the author of The Ex (2016).
