The Other Woman's House

Who hasn't wondered what the inside of a certain house you like looks like? After reading this book you may never look at a real estate website the same way. The Other Woman's House by Sophie Hannah is a psychological thriller with an innocuous enough beginning. Connie Bowskill is a highly suspicious wife. She believes her husband is having an affair while he, of course, denies it. After finding another address in his GPS system labelled as "home" Connie has been obsessed with the house at 11 Bentley Grove and and woman who lives there. When she finds the house listed on a real estate website she decides to take the virtual tour. What she sees will change her life.

A dead body in the lounge (the living room for those of us in the United States) lying in a pool of blood. The image is seared into Connie's brain.  Horrified she wakes up her husband, the computer expert. He looks at the website, watches the tour and no dead body. How can that be? Connie watches the site over and over and still no body. She calls the police to speak to Simon Waterhouse, someone she knows. Unable to reach Waterhouse, as he is out of the country, she is left to deal with his co-workers. And she thinks she is losing her mind - but is she?

And that is the question at the heart of this book. This is one great psychological thriller. The suspense starts building on the first page and just keeps building until the end of the story. The plot line races toward the conclusion where everyone comes to their fate.I read this book in 3 days. I could not put it down. This is the first book I have read by Sophie Hannah but it will not be the last.
