The Silent Widow by Tilly Bagshawe is a psychologically charged thriller incorporating corruption and the drug trade that truly exists in our world today.
Nikki Roberts is a well-known psychologist who is not only dealing with her own grief after losing her husband but is also trying to help others and emphasizes to her patients they should be looking at the truth. When one of Nikki’s patients is horribly, brutally killed, she has no idea that it could have any link back to her. Did kindly offering her raincoat get Lisa killed?
As Nikki continues to work with her handful of clients not only are more people dying but there seems to be a link between them all. Luckily, Nikki has a brave police officer watching her back, keeping her safe, for now.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars for its realistic and intriguing plot. The characters are believable and morph slowly showing each’s true colors. There are a few connections that although plausible, seem to only add an extra layer of “involved characters” that is not necessarily needed to complete the story. This lengthy list of characters is well developed and fit the plot and the author does an excellent job at tying up the loose ends giving the story a decent ending.
