The Doctor’s Wife, by Daniel Hurst

The Doctor's Wife book cover
Drew and Fern move to the small village of Arberness to get away from the pressure of city living. But Drew has been having an affair and has followed his lover in order to rekindle their romance. Can he keep the secret from his wife…?
The Doctor’s Wife is a psychological thriller set in the north of England.
Fern has given her husband a second chance but he doesn’t even know it. She is fully aware of his affair yet is hoping their marriage will survive. He is blissfully ignorant that she knows the truth, believing that he can fool her. Neither of the main characters is particularly pleasant, both being ruthless and devious.
Most of the book is written in the present day but there are some chapters from the past. The first person narrative swaps between Fern and Drew in the first half of the book so we see the secrets they are each keeping from the other. I loved the dual narrative for showing the contrasting perspectives and opinions on the same scenarios.
This is quite a quick read and I couldn’t put it down. I was completely swept up in the characters’ lives. I did feel that the final twist in the epilogue was perhaps one too far and stretched my credulity, however it was clever.
The Doctor’s Wife was a gripping and twisty novel about secrets and lies.
I have previously read other books by Daniel Hurst including The Accident, and The Break.

The Doctor’s Wife: An absolutely gripping and unputdownable psychological thriller with a shocking twist
He thinks his secret is safe. But she knows the truth…
My husband is a doctor. He’s smart and charming and everybody trusts him. Except me.
On the surface, it looks like I have it all – the perfect marriage, the perfect husband, the perfect life. But it’s far from the truth.
Doctor Drew Devlin is not the respectable figure he makes out to be. The reason we moved to this beautiful, old property with a gorgeous view of the sea was because we needed to put our past behind us. It should’ve been a fresh start for us both.
Except I’ve discovered my husband has been lying to me again. He’s using the power he has in his job to mess with people’s lives, and to get exactly what he wants – no matter who it hurts.
But he’s underestimated me. I’ve had plenty of time, in this big, isolated house, to think about all of his mistakes.
And my husband has no idea what’s about to happen next…
From the number one bestselling author of The Passenger, an absolutely gripping psychological thriller packed with jaw-dropping twists that will keep you reading late into the night. If you love Behind Closed Doors, Gone Girl and The Housemaid, you’ll be hooked on The Doctor’s Wife.
