Fans of Liane Moriarty and Jojo Moyes will be captivated by this riveting family drama with a dark mystery at its core, from the New York Times bestselling author of The House We Grew Up In.

In the early hours of a summer morning, a young woman steps into the path of an oncoming bus. A tragic accident? Or suicide?

At the center of this puzzle is Adrian Wolfe, a successful architect and grief-stricken widower, who, a year after his third wifes death, begins to investigate the cause. As Adrian looks back on their brief but seemingly happy marriage, disturbing secrets begin to surface. The divorces from his two previous wives had been amicable, or so it seemed; his children, all five of them, were resilient as ever, or so he thought. But something, or someone, must have pushed Maya over the edge.

Jewells last few novels have been a revelationemotionally sophisticated and complex, says Kirkus Reviews. Like Liane Moriarty, she manages the perfect blend of womens fiction and nail-biting suspense, hails Booklist. The Third Wife is an emotionally intelligent, brilliantly plotted, and beautifully written examination of a very modern family that will keep you gripped to the end (London Daily Mail).
