Dead To Her
By Sarah Pinborough

Review: Dead To Her

Sarah Pinborough delves into the lives of old-monied elite, in her latest psychological thriller, DEAD TO HER.

Two trophy wives get caught up in a storm of secrets, as they navigate a life of which they will never fully be a part. Marcie’s marriage to Jason Maddox was the result of an affair, and now Marcie wonders if it’s only a matter of time before she too is on the outs. Her insecurity deepens when Jason’s 65-year-old widowed boss, William Radford, returns from London with his new, 22-year-old wife, Keisha. Jason can hardly keep her eyes off her.

As we get to know the women and the men of Savannah’s wealthy elite, we realize not everything is as it seems. Everyone has something to hide, and no one wants to lose their country club status, mansions, and envy of others. Before too long, William’s domineering ways make life for Keisha unbearable, and Marcie can’t ignore that Jason is keeping secrets.

Marcie and Keisha’s relationship takes a turn as some of these secrets emerge and threaten to collapse the all-too-perfect façade.

The novel felt very soapy—sex, lies, greed, murder and a little voodoo to keep things spicy. That drama kept me rapt, despite the characters being not very likeable at all. And in true Pinborough style, the end packs a punch with surprises aplenty.

If you’re a fan of psychological thrillers, this one fits the bill as a dishy page-turner.
