The Optician's Wife by Betsy Reavley

May 20, 2017

 

The Blurb

 

Can you ever really know someone?

When Deborah, an unpopular seventeen-year-old, meets the charming and handsome Larry, he sweeps her off her feet. The trouble is Larry has a secret.

Then a series of grisly murders cast a shadow over everything.

As Deborah’s world starts to fall apart she begins to suspect the man she loves of a terrible betrayal. And to keep their marriage alive, sacrifices must be made.

A compelling, psychological thriller that unpicks what goes on behind closed doors and reminds us that sometimes the worst crimes can take place closer to home than you think.

The Optician's Wife is a powerful psychological thriller by the best-selling author of Carrion, The Quiet Ones and Beneath The Watery Moon. If you are a fan of authors like Angela Marsons, Kathryn Croft, Helen Durrant, Barbara Vine or Rachel Abbott you will be gripped by this brilliant and bracing psychological thriller.

My Review

 

Another gem from Bloodhound Books. This is the story of two apparent misfits in society, Deborah and Larry, coming together, living in a world of people that do not understand them. There is a serial killer in the area that removes the eyes from the victims. Larry is an optician... I so want to tell you more. You will just have to read it. It was a terrific read.
