Publisher's Summary

There is no perfect marriage. There is no perfect murder.
Diana Jager's life crumbles when her details are released on the Internet as revenge for her antisexism blog. Then she meets Peter. Within six months, they are married. Within six more, Peter is dead in a road accident - a nightmare end to their fairy-tale romance.
But Peter's sister, Lucy, doesn't believe in fairy tales and tasks maverick reporter Jack Parlabane with discovering the dark truth behind the woman the media is calling 'Black Widow'.

Grea story, poor narration

This is without doubt the most disappointing Audible book I've experienced. A well-written, fast-moving and totally enthralling tale, just what you would expect from this author.
But completely let down by the audio. For me, the choice of actors was wrong, the accents embarrassing and there was a failure to maintain individual character's accent, many of which were wrongly pitched from the outset. So much of the story is set in Inverness but I've yet to hear even an approximation of a Highland accent. And so many wrong pronunciations - Formica, Royal, Monifeith, Cromarty - that I found myself on edge waiting for the next one.
If you are thinking about getting this book, and if you are a Jack Parlabane fan you should, get the paper version .

great listen

This book captures much of what it is like to be a doctor and much of what it is like to be in an uncertain new relationship. Apart from the realities that are presented in the book there is a great plot. The actors reading the book breathe life into it. Worth a listen and as good as Brookmyre at his best.
