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'.

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.

Amazing twists

I absolutely loved this book. Had to get used to the male narrator and the Scottish accent at first but was soon immersed and did not want it to end. Brilliant writing style, educated and smooth. Would definitely recommend and am looking forward to read more by this author.

Superb

Absolutely loved Black Widow, another belter from Brookmyre. His female characters are always superb and the storylines always gripping and unique

Would have been 1 star ⭐️

I only added a star because of the twist at the end. The first half (over 7 hours) was excruciatingly boring. I felt like it wasn’t going anywhere. It only picked up in the second half but still drawled on. The ending was its only bit of saving grace.

The plot sounded good & had rave reviews so went against my initial thought (based on the front cover) to find I wish I didn’t. I honestly couldn’t wait for it to end.
