Publisher's Summary

Five years ago Elizabeth Piccioni's husband was arrested for being a serial killer. Her life suddenly turned upside down, she did what she thought was best for her newborn baby: she took her son and ran away to start a new life.
Now, living in a quiet part of the Midwest with a new identity, Elizabeth is ready to start over. But one day she receives a phone call from a person calling himself Cain. Cain somehow knows about her past life. He has abducted her son, and if Elizabeth wants to save him she must retrieve her husband's trophies - the fingers he cut off each of his victims.
With a deadline of 100 hours, Elizabeth has no choice but to return to the life she once fled, where she will soon realize that everything she thought she knew is a lie, and what's more shocking than Cain's identity is the truth about her husband.


What the Critics Say

"This is a scary, thrilling, page-turning, race-against-the-clock novel if ever there was one, with a true shocker of an ending. Miss this one at your own peril." (Blake Crouch, bestselling author of Pines and Wayward)
"An explosive summer thriller. Robert Swartwood is a sharp writer, his prose lean and mean as a razor blade. He notches up the tension from chapter to chapter like a master storyteller, keeping you reading long into the night." (The Man Eating Bookworm)

Where does The Serial Killer's Wife rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the top ten, I read it in one evening.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Absolutely, the mother having to go from person, and what happens as as a result of it.

Have you listened to any of Tanya Eby’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but she did a great job. Needs a little work with her male characters.They all started to sound the same.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

*On the church steps
** In the rental, at the end

Any additional comments?

Excellent book, from beginning to end! Couldn't put it down, started at 6:00 pm ended at 5:00 am. (I'm an immersion reader.)

What a great book!!!

This book was one that will keep your attention, and keep you listening/reading when you should go to bed (I am writing this review at 2 am because I had to see how it ended), it's that good!!! Just when you think you have a handle on what is going on, something else is thrown at you and the story gets better, and you cannot wait to see what happens next!
I will be looking for more from this author for sure!! His work ranks up there with James Patterson.
