批評家のレビュー

A Killer’s Wife is a high-stakes legal thriller loaded with intense courtroom drama, compelling characters, and surprising twists that will keep you turning the pages at breakneck speed.” (T.R. Ragan, New York Times best-selling author)

“Exquisitely paced and skillfully crafted, A Killer’s Wife delivers a wicked psychological suspense wrapped around a hypnotic legal thriller. One cleverly designed twist after another kept me saying - I did not see that coming.” (Steven Konkoly, Wall Street Journal best-selling author) 

“A gripping thriller that doesn’t let up for a single page. Surprising twists with a hero you care about. I read the whole book in one sitting!” (Chad Zunker, best-selling author of An Equal Justice)

あらすじ・解説

An Amazon Charts bestseller.

From the bestselling author of The Neon Lawyer comes a gripping thriller about a prosecutor confronted with the darkest part of her past and the worst fears for her future....

Fourteen years ago, prosecutor Jessica Yardley's husband went to prison for a series of brutal murders. She's finally created a life with her daughter and is a well-respected attorney. She's moving on. But when a new rash of homicides has her ex-husband, Eddie, written all over them - the nightmares of her past come back to life.

The FBI asks Jessica to get involved in the hunt for this copycat killer - which means visiting her ex and collaborating with the man who tore her life apart.

As the copycat's motives become clearer, the new life Jessica created for herself gets darker. She must ask herself who she can trust and if she's capable of stopping the killer - a man whose every crime is a bloody valentine from a twisted mastermind she's afraid she may never escape.

Enjoyed but

I would appreciate if the presenter read little more “unflat”.
Story has twist at the end but it felt little too sudden because it ruined the whole storyline until then.
At the end I enjoyed it but some part can be little shorter.

Finally, a thriller worthy of being called that!!

I listen to an average of 3-4 audiobooks a week and have been disappointed in quite a few lately. I love psychological thrillers and this one definitely fit under this category
It is a well written thriller with lots of unexpected twists and interesting, likable, smart characters.
The narrator is excellent as always.
I devoured this book in a day.
I agree with another reviewer, I liked the fact that there were no unnecessary “F-bombs” nor explicit sex scenes.
I will most definitely read more books by this author.

A Killer's Wife

I would recommend this book for anyone who is a fan of TV shows like "Criminal Minds" or "Law and Order". This book was a mix of courtroom drama and the search for a serial killer. It was not gruesome like a lot of these types of books are, but instead was more of a psychological drama.

The story takes many twists and turns along the way and the way that the author kept the reader guessing throughout the book up until the very end kept my attention throughout. This book approached the serial killer aspect from a unique (at least to me) angle, focusing a lot on the family of the serial killer and really bringing them to life. The author did a great job in weaving this tale and I will definitely look for more of his books.

The narrator, Brittany Pressley, did a great job in her performance and really added a lot to my enjoyment of the book. Her voices for the different characters was perfect and the killer's voice had just the right amount of creepiness to it to make it more realistic.

A powerful legal thriller!

All of author Victor Methos' audio novels are in my Audible library and I gave high ratings to most. This is a special novel in that it has more gravitas than the earlier ones. The very end is really special; it's a major plot twist. I look forward to the next novel in the series. Brittany Pressley's narration is perfect.

The best book!!

I listened to this last year when it first came out. I actually put it on my "Best of 2020 Books" list. I just re-listened in preparation for the 2nd book that just came out. Excellent!!!
And Brittney Presley does an awesome job narrating. Now, onto book 2!!

Just OK

This was the first book I’ve read by author Victor Methos. The premise of the story sounded promising, so I decided to give it a try.

Federal prosecutor Jessica Yardley created a new life with her daughter after her husband went to prison for a series of brutal murders. She’s well-respected and good in her field. When two new homicides occur, the killer appears to be a copycat criminal of her now ex-husband.

FBI agent Cason Baldwin, with whom Jessica has a past relationship, enlists her help. He wants her to talk with the ex-husband in hopes the psychopathic killer will point them to the murderer.

Numerous times I wanted to give up on this book. The author needs a good content editor. I got bogged down by the numerous repetitive words. Consider the following passage:

“Yardley stood outside the bedroom doors. Double doors, white with copper trim. She pictured Isaac in the morning opening both doors and what he must’ve seen. She took both knobs and pushed the doors open, the way a child might.”

Or this:

“Yardley knew she was lucky to be a federal prosecutor. The state prosecutors were overworked and had little time to help in any investigations or interviews. Federal prosecutors could pick and choose their cases and take all the time they needed. Whereas a state prosecutor might interview a victim once before a trial, Yardley could interview a victim ten times if she wanted. She could send the FBI to collect evidence she required and turn down cases she felt didn’t need to be prosecuted. As a state prosecutor, she wouldn’t have had the time to help Baldwin.”

Those are just two examples. I wouldn’t want to bore you with more of them. Another problem I had was the author’s use of the main character’s last name, which by the way, was repeated time and time again within a passage. The author doesn’t seem to know how to use a pronoun.

Nonetheless, I kept listening I guessed the killer’s identity early on (wasn’t difficult) but what did surprise me was Victor Methos revealed the killer halfway into the book. Curious, I continued to see what he was going to do.

What follows is unbelievable. A federal prosecutor doing investigations, obtaining search warrants, and conducting the search herself without backup, and being allowed to prosecute a crime in which she had a personal involvement with the killer.

I also didn’t like the ending. Too many loose threads which leads me to believe there will be a continuation of this story in the second book which is scheduled for release in 2021. I may try once more but I am not sure

Brittany Pressley was good with the delivery of the story and probably the only reason I finished the book

It's a tiny bit mystery and a whole lot of drama

Waaay too much narrated feelings, waaay too little action. A couple hours in, I vacillated on whether or not to even finish...because I was hoping for action or suspense, but instead, the story's protagonist was constantly pouring out her emotions. Constantly. All throughout the book. During second half of the book, I felt like the author was trying to show off his knowledge of the court system...and teach it to the reader, too. How did he do this? By having characters explain things that the other character would already know; thus, the explanation was clearly for the reader's benefit, which I found wholly annoying. On the bright side, Ms. Pressley did an amazing job narrating.

***10/10***

everything about this story is compelling, I cannot deal with the fact that this book came out on my Bday and I have to wait for the rest of the series.
the performance of Brittany is one of her best works, too.

CONGRATS TO BOTH!!!!

Excellent continued suspense held

I did peg the story line almost to a T but nevertheless I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the book. Great twists. My all time favorite was the back & forth bantering scene in the courtroom with the objections! 😅 CLASSIC! (Been there! LOL)

I do recommend this book. A quick, fun, easy read. 👍

Suspenseful

Brittney Pressley has to be one of the best narrators, her ability to change her voice n caltureeach character makes it a pleasure to hear. The Killers wife is suspenseful couldn't stop hearing it sat in my car listening even though I reached my destination. This book won't disappoint...

Nearly gave up.

The premise for this story attracted me to download a book in the first place. I particularly like the legal proceedings. However I nearly gave up listening several times as the plot became more and more contrived. I finished the book really because we’re in lockdown and so why not!? However, you do need to suspend a lot of disbelief and just accept the twists and turns!

Really enjoyable

This is a truly great story, from the characters to the plot. The narrator does an excellent job or bringing the story to life. The twists are not easily forseen and the back stories and characters seem particularly pertinent to the smooth telling of the book. The one thing I particularly liked was that the author presented the facts and evidence, instead of informing the reader of what they should be thinking or assumed judgements. This to me shows a true depth of knowledge and ability in their craft of storytelling.

long and boring

The narrator was good, and made it easier to listen too. The story for me was too long. It didn't need to be this strung out. It could have been much more to the point snd concise. One part in the court chapter made me wanted to poke my eyes out! I couldn't wait for it to finish.

Excellent

Good story and actually believable. Being in Law enforcement in the U.K. I find that books don’t always portray the characters in a life like way and the stereotypes become annoying. This was good. In the U.K. prosecutors are independent and therefore would not investigate cases so I can’t judge that, and the simplicity of how she found her evidence was so easy a child could find it. However if the investigation bit was real life, it would have been an incredibly boring book! I really enjoyed it
