Then detectives come into the house and start asking questions about a murder that happened in an abandoned restaurant, the day Karen got into the accident and not far from where Karen had her accident…

How much do you know your wife?

The plot of the story was good. However, it was not fast paced like I expected it to be and not much of twists and turns you would expect in a thriller. The author’s writing was however simple and not very complicated which was actually a good thing. And the other thing it was, the story was way too predictable so for me, it was just an OK thriller, not a die hard thriller.

Overall I give this book as three stars
