Diana Jager is clever, strong and successful, a skilled surgeon and fierce campaigner via her blog about sexism. Yet it takes only hours for her life to crumble when her personal details are released on the internet as revenge for her writing.
Then she meets Peter. He's kind, generous, and knows nothing about her past: the second chance she's been waiting for.
Within six months, they are married. Within six more, Peter is dead in a road accident, a nightmare end to their fairytale romance.
But Peter's sister Lucy doesn't believe in fairytales, and tasks maverick reporter Jack Parlabane with discovering the dark truth behind the woman the media is calling Black Widow...
BLACK WIDOW by Christopher Brookmyre is a powerful tale of love, lies, and people's perceptions. Told from different characters points of view, we really get to learn the nitty-gritty of the crime that has possibly been committed, the case being built by the police officers, the journalist who is digging to uncover the answers, and Diana's take on what has happened to bring her to this stage of her life. Dark and disturbing, this fast-paced novel kept me on the edge of my seat from the beginning, and I was completely invested to the very end. Challenging stereotypes of what society expects its victims and accusers to look like, to act like, this book really makes you question everything. With so many twists and turns, BLACK WIDOW by Christopher Brookmyre definitely didn't make it easy to figure out the outcome, but it was such a thrilling, fascinating journey that I cannot complain. This chilling novel has everything you want in a crime fiction story and I cannot wait to read more from Christopher Brookmyre!
