The Housewife by Alex Kane, Even perfect mothers have secrets…
Leah. She’s the perfect mum to ten-year-old Samuel, wife to loving husband Thomas, head of the PTA. But her closet is full of skeletons – and if the truth gets out, her world could be destroyed.
Annie. She’s the gangster’s moll with a brain. She might be a woman, but she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty to play the men at their own game. But what no one knows is the devastating secret haunting her.
Terry. He’s the king of Glasgow gangland, working his way up from estate to mansion. From drugs to guns, there’s nothing he won’t stop at to grow his dirty money. He might be a hard man, but his weakness is women.
As their three stories collide, the lives of each will never be the same. Because even perfect women hide dark secrets… Don’t they?
This is a fast read, full of characters and a complex plot. Lies and twists will be waiting for you on every corner, ready?
Every family has their own secrets, it doesn’t matter how perfect we are. For the outsiders, there are always some skeletons to hide, and Leah is not an exception. She can be the perfect mother/housewife. But I don’t think you’ll want to know her secret life; gangsters, drugs, money… The perfect scenario to keep the reader turning pages, believe me.
The story is centered in 3 characters; Leah, Annie and Terry. Their worlds will collide changing their fates forever. Because in the world of gangsters you never know who are your allies and your enemies.
I don’t normally read gangster stories, but it was easy to enter this book. The characters felt real and Glasgow has always been a grey city for me. So, it was easy to see all the action in my mind, like it was real.
This is an interesting and well-plotted story, addictive and real.
