The Good Husband by Abigail Osborne – review.


A shopping trip on Black Friday shoppers leads to Elsie’s tragic death—and leaves Jack, her husband of thirty-seven years, devastated. Unable to cope with his grief, he flees to his childhood home to be with his father, an overbearing religious zealot who puts his faith before everything—even his son.

Jack’s father convinces him that Elsie had not died in vain. Her life was sacrificed to give Jack the strength he needs for his mission: to rid the world of greed. Embittered by his loss, Jack soon sets out to punish the depraved and eradicate the sinners from the world. The greedy killed his wife, and now they must pay. But how far is Jack willing to go to fulfil God’s plan—and how many innocent people will die?

My thoughts

This is one helluva disturbing psychological thriller, or should I say psychological horror? It’s not for the easily scared. Jack’s journey with his scary religious father made for a compelling read and the events that followed – eek!

There were some heartbreaking scenes. I really enjoyed Adina’s POV and I’m sure a lot of people will find her relatable. Each chapter takes the reader deep into their world of darkness in which there is seemingly no escape for the protagonist. There are shocks galore and surprises to be had.

I loved that is was set at the Malvern Hills, what a wonderfully bleak landscape.

Great for Halloween and fabulous for those who love a deep character journey. Go and grab a copy!

Thanks for reading!
