Black Widows


Blake Nelson moved into a hidden stretch of land – a raw paradise in the wilds of Utah – where he lived with his three wives: Rachel, the chief wife, obedient and doting to a fault. Tina, the other wife, who’s everything Rachel isn’t. And Emily, the youngest wife, who knows almost nothing else. When their husband is found dead under the desert sun, the questions pile up. What are these women to each other now that their husband is dead? Will the police uncover the secrets each woman has spent her life hiding? And is one of them capable of murder?

He had three perfect wives.
Until one of them killed him.

‘I could not put it down… I loved it!’ MARIAN KEYES


Blake’s dead. His wife killed him.
The question is… which one?

Rachel, Emily and Tina have nothing in common – except that they share a husband and a homestead.

When their beloved Blake is found dead under the desert sun, the questions pile up. But none of the widows know who would want to kill a good man like their husband.

At least, that’s what they’ll tell the police…
