From the New York Times-bestselling author of Half Moon Bay. "Marriage is as mysterious as murder in LaPlante's captivating psychological thriller" (People). -An Indie Next Pick -A LibraryReads Selection -An Amazon Best Book of the Month (Mysteries & Thrillers) -A Daily Candy Best Book of March -One of More magazine's "Five Thrillers Not to Read After Dark" When Dr. John Taylor turns up dead in a hotel room, the local police uncover enough incriminating evidence to suspect foul play. Detective Samantha Adams, whose Palo Alto beat usually covers petty crimes, is innocently thrown into a high-profile case that is more complicated than any she has faced before. A renowned reconstructive surgeon and a respected family man, Dr. Taylor was beloved and admired. But beneath his perfect facade was a hidden life-in fact, multiple lives. Dr. Taylor was married to three very different women in three separate cities. As the circumstances surrounding his death emerge, Detective Adams finds herself tracking down a murderer through a tangled web of marital deception and revenge. New York Times-bestselling author Alice LaPlante's haunting and complex novel of family secrets dissects-with scalpel-like agility-the intricacies of desire and commitment, trust and jealousy. "Exhilarating and smart, A Circle of Wives is a wild ride of love, loss, marriage and murder, with a finale that's provocative, thrilling and grand. It all shows that while some deaths are a mystery, so, too, are some loves." -San Francisco Chronicle
