In , Dr. Joyce Brothers's husband of more than thirty years, Dr. Milton Brothers, passed away. As a widow, Dr. Brothers found herself emotionally lost and alone, at sea in an ocean of grief -- until she dealt with her despair, overcame her loneliness, and, gradually, put her life back together again. In WIDOWED, Dr. Brothers shares this intimate journey and offers the knowledge she has. The Widow of The South is a brilliant novel that captures the end of an era, the vast madness of war, and the courage of a remarkable woman to claim life from the grasp of death itself. Also available as a Time Warner Audiobook, in a Large Print Edition and as an eBook.

A very interesting book of the Jack Widow series written by author Scott Blade is entitled ‘Winter Territory’. This book was released by the Black Lion publication in the year The primary characters described by author Blade in this book include Alex Shepard, Jack Widow, and several others.   The Last Widow Author: Karin Slaughter Publishers: HarperCollins The Sara Linton/Will Trent books have been one of my favourite series of the past few years. This one did not disappoint. Covering relevant and contemporary themes including domestic terrorism, racism and paedophilia this is a tense thrilling read and came to a very satisfactory.

  Black Widow is a stand-out thriller, reminiscent of the best of Nordic Noir but with its own vivid landscape (Renee Knight, author of Disclaimer) Brookmyre opens with a dramatic court scene, followed by a series of clever twists that challenge the reader to work out who is the victim of an extremely sophisticated crime (Sunday Times)/5(). It’s the kind of book you race through as quickly as you can so you can start it again."—Christian White, internationally bestselling author of The Nowhere Child and The Wife and the Widow “The tension ratchets up and up in this beautifully paced thriller—an outstanding debut, populated by complex and sympathetic characters.

The Widow is not a book filled with twists & turns so I wouldn't consider it a thriller. The Widow just has a simmering sense of dread through out the entire book. The reason I didn't give it 4 stars is because the characters weren't very deep.

Editorial Reviews. 03/17/ Barclay (More Than Words Can Say) turns in a lukewarm, clunky supernatural romance. Adam and Constance Canfield died simultaneously thousands of miles apart in she fell to her death from the widow’s walk of their Massachusetts house, Seaside, while he was lost at sea.4/5(4).

Carol Goodman is the critically acclaimed author of fourteen novels, including The Lake of Dead Languages and The Seduction of Water, which won the Hammett Prize. Her books have been translated into sixteen languages.

She lives in the Hudson Valley with her family, and teaches writing and literature at the New School and SUNY New : HarperCollins Publishers. As the haunting intensifies, Clare sees shadowy women on the edge of the weir, hears invisible babies crying in the wee hours, and peels back layer after layer of identical wallpaper in the nursery.

Goodman ratchets up the psychological tension, making Clare question everyone she has ever trusted. Why were her adoptive parents so distant. Novelist Richard Morgan seems to take the Bourne films as his inspiration, and ratchets up a fantastic espionage thriller, albeit a very violent one.

This is probably as true a depiction of the reality of someone like Black Widow as has been published, and the behavior of Nick Fury (pretty controversial at the time) is also spot on. Fiona Barton’s slippery debut is a top-notch addition to the growing field of psychological thrillers starring untrustworthy female characters, such as The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl.

In the first chapter, readers learn a possible kidnapper and child molester is dead. Four years earlier, he was accused and tried for the disappearance of 2-year-old Bella Elliot, but found not guilty.
