The Spy's Wife | [Reginald Hill]

The Spy's Wife

Molly Keatley is deeply contented with her life, her loving husband and her comfortable home. That all changes one morning when her husband comes rushing home, mutters a hasty apology...and disappears. Minutes later, two strange men arrive with news that her husband is in fact a Soviet spy. Her husband, it appears, has spent nearly a decade using her for his own purposes, and now the British intelligence service want to use her for theirs.

Publisher's Summary

Molly Keatley is deeply contented with her life, her loving husband and her comfortable home. That all changes one morning when her husband comes rushing home, mutters a hasty apology...and disappears. Minutes later, two strange men arrive with news that her husband is in fact a Soviet spy. Her husband, it appears, has spent nearly a decade using her for his own purposes, and now the British intelligence service want to use her for theirs.

It would be so easy to give in but the shock of Sam's betrayal has woken Molly out of her long, complacent dream, and she is no longer prepared to be anybody's pawn.

    "I did finish it!"

    I absolutely never identified with the main character (Molly). Her every action was the opposite of what mine would have been. I found it a little disorienting and maybe just a little interesting (hence the star). The only believable and likable character was (Molly's) father. I enjoyed the narrator.

    "we're all allowed the odd slip up..."

    Sadly I found this book tedious in the extreme and a far cry from the usually excellent Reginald Hill books. I am a huge fan, originally for the Dalziel and Pascoe books although The Stranger House is in my top ten books ever. Find it hard to believe that both books are by the same author. I tried to persevere to find out what happened, but somewhere in Europe I stopped caring.... :(

    "Feisty woman"

    I did not enjoy this story as much as I have other titles by Reginald Hill, but it is worth listening to the end for the quiet humour of the author and his characters. Where is the husband? Is he alive? The wife, and it seems like a lot of other people are watching and waiting for him to appear and, despite my ambivalence I, too, was sucked into wanting to know.
