Thomas H. Cook

A man stands trial for the murder of his wife in this powerful novel of love and guilt from the master of the psychological thriller Thomas H. Cook. When Sam met Sandrine, a fellow doctorate student in New York, he couldn't believe his luck. She was beautiful, bohemian and daring - everything he wasn't. Together anything seemed possible. But now Sandrine is dead, laid out on their marital bed, a glass of vodka by her side and a fistful of painkillers in her stomach. The coroner says suicide. The state says, suspicious circumstances. There was always love in Sam and Sandrine's book-filled house in Crescent Road. But what else had there been? Seeds of discontent? Seeds of infidelity? Seeds, at last, of murder...?
