Even perfect mothers have secrets…
Leah. She’s the perfect mum to ten-year-old Samuel, wife to loving husband Thomas, head of the PTA. But her closet is full of skeletons – and if the truth gets out, her world could be destroyed.
Annie. She’s the gangster’s moll with a brain. She might be a woman, but she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty to play the men at their own game. But what no one knows is the devastating secret haunting her.
Terry. He’s the king of Glasgow gangland, working his way up from estate to mansion. From drugs to guns, there’s nothing he won’t stop at to grow his dirty money. He might be a hard man, but his weakness is women.
As their three stories collide, the lives of each will never be the same. Because even perfect women hide dark secrets… Don’t they?
Alex Kane has done it again and delivered a top notch gangland crime novel that I couldn’t get enough of.
This is an author who knows how to create strong female leads. The story flicks between Leah and Annie. Both women have something from their past that they are hiding and I was desperate to know just what these secrets were. Whatever it is, it is obvious that it is leading these two women into something very serious.
All I can say is buckle up those seat belts as boy are you in for one thrilling ride! There is something about gangland crime that is both scary but exhilarating at the same time. These are people you do not want to cross and the tension throughout was electrifying to see what outcome was in store for these characters.
I didn’t think the author could top her previous book but with The Housewife she has yet again knocked the ball straight out of the park. Alex Kane is an author who has really found her niche in this genre and for me is up there with the likes of Martina Cole and Kimberley Chambers. Without a doubt she has vast become one my favourite authors and her books are some of my most anticipated reads. If you haven’t read any yet, then what are you waiting for?

Alex Kane writes gangland crime and psychological thrillers and will read anything she can get her hands on from both genres. If she is not writing, she can be found relaxing at home reading, or drinking tea and/or gin (sometimes all of the above).
Alex is currently working on future books but can also be found procrastinating on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
