Welcome to my second blog post of the day.
Today is my spot on the blog tour for new psychological thriller The Woman Inside, the first published novel by writing partnership E.G. Scott. Thank you to Tracy Fenton from Compulsive Readers and Trapeze Books for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book.
About the book:
A page-turning thriller about secrets and revenge, told from the perspectives of a husband and wife who are the most perfect, and the most dangerous, match for each other.
Rebecca didn’t know love was possible until she met Paul, a man with a past as dark as her own. Their demons drew them together, but twenty years later, the damage and secrets that ignited their love begin to consume their marriage.
When Paul catches the attention of the police after two women go missing, Rebecca discovers his elaborate plot to build a new life without her. And though Rebecca is quickly spiralling out of control, it doesn’t stop her from coming up with her own devastating plan for revenge… they made a promise to each other, afterall.
Til death do us part.
With a Shakespearean twist that rivals the best books in the genre, THE WOMAN INSIDE is the unmissable thriller of 2019.
Perfect for fans of The Woman in the Window and The Wife Between Us, and of TV shows Big Little Lies and The Affair.
About the author:
E. G. Scott is a pseudonym for two writers, who have been friends for over twenty-years, and have been writing plays, screenplays, and short stories separately since they were kids. They’ve collaborated on multiple projects from the beginning of their friendship, but this is their first published work together. This book came out of their shared love of thrillers and noir and wanting to collaborate on a novel for a long time. They are currently working on their next thriller.
The Woman Inside is a psychological thriller that tells the shocking tale of damaged and dysfunctional Paul and Rebecca. It is a story that builds up the tension slowly, with many twists and turns throughout that lead to a devastating denouement you would never expect.
The two main protagonists are flawed characters who, to be quite honest, don’t have many redeeming qualities and are not likeable people. But that only adds to the enjoyment and unpredictability of this book as they are two very unreliable narrators, so you can never be certain that the story you are being told is one hundred percent the truth.
The majority of the story is told from the alternating viewpoints of Rebecca and Paul and they take you on a relentless rollercoaster of a ride that leads to a shocking conclusion that will leave you breathless.
The Woman Inside is very different to my usual type of read and I was taken by surprise at how much I enjoyed it. The writing is excellent and the two very different voices of this writing partnership work extremely well together. A psychological thriller with a difference. I can’t wait to see what this exciting and talented duo come up with next!
