Her Husband’s Killer
DID SHE OR DIDN’T SHE?
She’d planned the perfect murder of her husband so many times. And now he’s dead. But did she really kill him?
Dr Helen Wilkinson stands over the body of her husband, Edward. It’s just as she’d imagined it so many times before. He looks calm, asleep almost. And yet something isn’t right: in her fantasies there was never so much blood.
Her husband was a professor with few friends. A manipulative and sadistic man who delighted in the humiliation of others. Many wished him dead. But Helen has fantasised, planned and committed the crime so many times in her head she doesn’t know what is real anymore.
Now she’s the prime suspect. How can she convince the police she didn’t murder her husband — when she doesn’t know herself?
