Black Widows Summary

The question is: which one?

*****

The only thing the three women had in common was their husband.

And, as of this morning, that they're each accused of his murder.

Blake Nelson moved into a hidden stretch of land - a raw paradise in the wilds of Utah - where he lived with his three wives:

Rachel, the chief wife, obedient and doting to a fault.
Tina, the other wife, who is everything Rachel isn't.
And Emily, the youngest wife, who knows little else.

When their husband is found dead under the desert sun, the questions pile up.
But none of the widows know who would want to kill a good man like Blake.

Or, at least, that's what they'll tell the police...

Black Widows Reviews

Black Widows is a brilliant joyride in the company of three unforgettable women, sister-wives with nothing in common except their dead husband. Completely compelling and vividly told, the story plays with your loyalties and makes you question what counts as moral behaviour. This is a hugely enjoyable and original mystery with real heart, and I loved it * Jane Casey *
It's unusual to read a story that reveals a completely different life, but that's exactly what Black Widows does. A thrilling tale which twists and turns along an immersive desert landscape, with a surprising Thelma & Louise style ending that makes you feel proud of the sisterhood * Araminta Hall *
Oh my God, THIS BOOK! Mormon man - three wives, living survivalist lives - is murdered. Each wife is a suspect. I could NOT put it down!!! Utterly compelling, nuanced characterisation, such atmosphere. I LOVED it! * Marian Keyes *
Quinn gives her readers an exquisite murder mystery, taking us through uncharted territory of off-the-grid, modern-day intentional communities. Black Widows is a steady, slow boil you'll be happy to immerse yourself in * Christina Dalcher *
I loved this book. It's both a fascinating glimpse into a hidden world and brilliantly twisty crime novel. Three wives, three motives, three utterly compelling stories * Elly Griffiths *
The marriage thriller given a wicked new twist. Claustrophobic, intense and absolutely gripping Black Widows announces the arrival of a major new talent into the halls of domestic noir * Eva Dolan *
Everything about this book - the plot, the characters, the telling - is strikingly original. And highly recommended. Brilliantly imagined, compellingly told, a tale of survival against the odds, told with insight and compassion. The voices of the three wives will stay with the reader long after the book is finished * Chris Hammer *
It's a great hook and a tremendous read - I thoroughly enjoyed this. The tension ramps up all the way to the end and I loved the relationship between the wives * Harriet Tyce *
Intense, gripping, superb * Will Dean *
Black Widows is an absolutely thrilling novel. I devoured it over a weekend, unable to put it down. It's a clever and completely original take on a domestic thriller ... Manages to be more than the sum of its parts: at once a fast-paced thriller and also a fascinating examination of Mormon culture and an extremely complicated and deadly marriage. Highly recommended * Alex Michaelides *
Part page-turning whodunit, part desert domestic noir, Black Widows is a sly, contemporary crime masterpiece. I loved it * Adrian McKinty *
Black Widows is also a riveting murder plot, and a delicate analysis of the relationship between 'sister' wives who have to live together, despite all attendant jealousies and privations. An amazing achievement. * woman&home *
An atmospheric and addictive thriller. * The Sun *
A gripping read * Bella *
