Georgina Lees excels at writing character-driven thrillers, and The Lost Wife is no exception.
A woman is on the run with a wounded arm, a bloody veil in the passenger seat, and a child in the back seat.
Review of The Lost Wife
I don’t want to reveal too much about the plot because it would be easy to give something away.
This psychological thriller has two timelines. The tension and secrets build with each chapter. The reader feels all the oppressive anxieties the characters do.
It discusses difficult parent/child relationships, gaslighting, and control.
This novel has a lot of brutality and a violent scene that may trigger animal lovers.
Many of the problems could have been resolved if the characters had tried communicating with one another rather than keeping everything locked up.
I feel like Georgina Lees is an underrated author. But she is quickly becoming my go-to thriller author.
If you enjoy evenly-paced, character-driven thrillers featuring characters that might not always be likeable, then you may enjoy this novel.
