"Following the twists and turns of an unimaginable crime, The Widow is an electrifying debut thriller that will take you into the dark spaces that exist between a husband and a wife. When the police started asking questions, Jean Taylor turned into a different woman. One who enabled her and her husband to carry on when more bad things began to happen. . . But that woman's husband died last week. And Jean doesn't have to be her anymore. There's a lot Jean hasn't said over the years about the crime her husband was suspected of committing. She was too busy being the perfect wife, standing by her man while living with the accusing glares and the anonymous harassment. Now there's no reason to stay quiet. There are people who want to hear her story. They want to know what it was like living with that man. She can tell them that there were secrets. There always are in a marriage. The truth--that's all anyone wants. But the one lesson Jean has learned in the last few years is that she can make people believe anything. . . "--… (mere)

I was browsing the available audio books on Overdrive and remembered seeing The Widow being shelved by a few of the people I follow on Goodreads. I didn't know what it was about except it was in the mystery category and that was good enough for me at that moment.

The story was interesting and engaging. For anyone who is hesitant about reading it for fear of graphic descriptions of crimes, have no fear, there aren't any. The POVs switch between several people who are involved in the crime and the investigation so there's a lot of information to absorb but it never felt overwhelming. This isn't a fast-paced "who dunnit" but more of a slow reveal.

I definitely enjoyed the book but didn't feel any sort of urgency in reading it. I could have easily set it aside and probably not thought about it again. The widow was certainly an interesting character. I would have liked to have spent more time in her head. I wanted to get back to her whenever another character's POV took over.

If you're looking for a lighter mystery that deals with potentially upsetting themes but doesn't go into graphic detail, this might be for you.

Ao longo dos anos, Jean Taylor deixou de contar muitas coisas sobre o terrível crime que o marido era suspeito de ter cometido. Ela estava muito ocupada sendo a esposa perfeita, permanecendo ao lado do homem com quem casara enquanto convivia com os olhares acusadores e as ameaças anônimas.

Jarringly twisted. ( )

Solid and very engrossing slightly predictable.
The audiobook production was very high quality. ( )

Gripping, and I enjoyed author Fiona Barton's writing style, but wish she had delved deeper into the obsessive psyches of Jeanie, the dishrag of a wife, Glen, the husband, and the police chief. ( )

Barton skillfully weaves a tale that reminds us that yes, we can be deceived by others, but we can just as easily deceive ourselves. Perception is a two-way street. A stranger or a loved one can play a role or act a part until it feels real.

And here is where the brilliance of The Widow lies. Whom do you trust? Whom can you trust? And not just others but ourselves as well. The Widow reminds us that relationships are not black and white to those in them — they're forever grey.
 
Crime novels featuring ludicrous scenarios where numerous ciphers get offed in a variety of ways seem to be going out of fashion. The new trend is for more realistic accounts of crimes, focusing on the minutiae of investigation and the frequently dull and frustrating aspects of detection. Fiona Barton’s debut is firmly of this type and it’s utterly gripping...She cleverly details how each individual copes with a long investigation without ever lessening the tension. The Widow is a tribute to those professionals who never let go of a story, or a case, however cold.
