The Last Wife

The Last Wife

Who would YOU trust to carry out your final wish?

‘Such a twisty ride! You are going to love this’ Lesley Kara, bestselling author of THE RUMOUR

Two women. A dying wish. And a web of lies that will bring their world crashing down…

Nina and Marie were best friends-until Nina was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Before she died, Nina asked Marie to fulfill her final wishes.

But her mistake was in thinking Marie was someone she could trust.

What Nina didn’t know was that Marie always wanted her beautiful life, and that Marie has an agenda of her own. She’ll do anything to get what she wants.

Marie thinks she can keep her promise to her friend’s family on her own terms. But what she doesn’t know is that Nina was hiding explosive secrets of her own…

Such a twisty ride! You are going to love this
Lesley Kara, bestselling author of THE RUMOUR
Karen Hamilton has a rare gift for character quite unlike other writers. She gets beneath the skin of damaged, fragile and obsessive women in a way that is utterly compelling. I could not tear myself away as Marie claimed the life of her dead friend Nina with devastating consequences. This is a five-star, one-sitting read
Fiona Cummins, bestselling author of RATTLE
A wonderfully twisted female protagonist
