Review: The Dead Ex by Jane Corry

This book did not fit any of my challenge criteria.


‘I wish he’d just DIE.’

Vicki’s husband David once promised to love her in sickness and in health. But after a brutal attack left her suffering with epilepsy, he ran away with his mistress.

So when Vicki gets a call one day to say that he’s missing, her first thought is ‘good riddance’. But then the police find evidence suggesting that David is dead. And they think Vicki had something to do with it.

What really happened on the night of David’s disappearance?
And how can Vicki prove her innocence, when she’s not even sure of it herself?

What I liked:

I am not ashamed to say I was hooked on this. Jane is incredible at writing mysterious thrillers that you can never unwind yourself. This was no different. I never once put all the pieces together. The ending genuinely shocked me.

One of my favourite characters was Scarlett. I hoped for so much for her, and I desperately hoped she would break out of the stigma of her beginnings.

You can tell in so many instances that Jane did a lot of research into epilepsy. Vicki was so very well written.

What I didn’t like

I really struggle to find something here that I didn’t love.

Out of five?

4.5. If you want something that will keep you gripped this summer, you can’t beat this.
