Publisher's Summary

Can you ever really know someone? When Deborah, an unpopular 17-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 casts 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. The Optician's Wife is a compelling psychological thriller that unpacks 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 stylish, brilliantly crafted thriller which really delivers. A very real sense of creeping dread, combined with intelligent, finely drawn characters, had me turning the pages late into the night." (J. Ross, bestselling author of The DCI Ryan books)
