Publisher's Summary

Ana Bacon, a beautiful young wife and mother, tumbled off a cruise ship into dark and deadly waters. Ana is gone - leaving behind her wealthy husband and adorable daughter - but not everything about her disappearance adds up. What secrets did she leave behind?
Investigator Ryan Monahan is a numbers man. So when his company sends him the Bacon case, which could net a 10 million-dollar payout, Monahan doubts that her death is just a tragic accident. But the husband has a substantial alibi and a number of witnesses claim to have seen Ana fall, and the official ruling seems to hold up.
Still, the more Monahan uncovers about Ana's life, the more he realizes how many people would kill to keep her secrets hidden. And the closer he gets to the truth, the greater the odds grow that he, too, will take a fatal fall.

Many twists and turns wasn't sure where or how this would end or if it would. When it finally got to the end it went quick. This goes to show even though you live with someone you marry them have their child you never really know that person. You never know what kind of horror they can bring in to your life. Concrete table!! Why would anyone spend over $4000 for one.
I received this free for an honest review from the author or narrator.

The Widower's wife

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Widower's Wife?

It is told with two storylines intertwined. Ryan's investigation in late November and early December is interspersed with Ana and Tom Bacon's decision in October to defraud the insurance company . It has many suspenseful parts that it was hard to pause while listening to the audiobook.
