Advanced Praise for The Perfect Wife
“The Perfect Wife blew my mind! What a wonderful and unique thriller. I haven’t been able to put it down since it arrived, and now that I’ve finished I can’t stop thinking about it! Those last lines . . . wow! JP Delaney has outdone himself with his latest dynamic, razor-sharp, and thought-provoking thriller. The Perfect Wife is a cutting-edge suspense novel unlike any you’ve read before. . . . A must-read!”—Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of The Good Girl
"A twisty, completely original psychological thriller that grabs you from the start and doesn't let go until the very end."
"Seriously, amazingly, awesomely brilliant . . . speculative fiction mixed up with a mind-bendingly twisty psycho thriller! I devoured it."
"A tour de force . . . The Perfect Wife is a chilling and uniquely disturbing twenty-first century twist on the unreliable narrator that makes for a compulsive and deeply thought-provoking book. It asks troubling questions about selfhood and 'souls' and what makes us human, and plays them out in a compelling psychological thriller."—Cara Hunter, author of Close to Home
“Readers . . . will be rewarded with a fresh take on the domestic thriller that will leave them satisfied.”—Booklist
“Puts—almost perfectly—a high-tech spin on the stories of Frankenstein and Pygmalion with a tinge of the Stepford wives. . . . The intriguing plot leads to a chilling and surprising finale that perfectly caps The Perfect Wife.”—Associated Press
“Artificial intelligence might seem like a risky plot device, and the premise of the novel itself is tricky at best, but Delaney pulls it off brilliantly, with an intoxicating knack for suspense. This is the kind of novel ugly words like ‘unputdownable’ were invented for. With the tale of Abbie, Delaney delivers a sharp reflection on misogyny. . . . With every thriller must come a dizzying plot twist and an unforeseeable denouement, as is definitely the case here. . . . Everything about The Perfect Wife feels earned and satisfying. . . . This journey is a captivating, deeply engrossing one.”—The Independent
