Books Info:

A Circle of Wives free pdf From Alice LaPlante, the author of the "New York Times" bestseller "Turn of Mind," comes a suspenseful, scandalous, and startling psychological thriller about an investigation into the murder of a prominent doctor that leads to a shocking case of polygamy and revenge.
When Dr. John Taylor is found dead in a hotel room in his own hometown, police find enough incriminating evidence to suspect foul play. Detective Samantha Adams, whose posh Palo Alto beat usually covers small town crimes, is innocently thrown into a high profile murder case that is more intricately intertwined than she first expected. Behind this renowned plastic surgeon, family man, and community spokesman, was not only one great woman but three of them. A closeted polygamist, Dr. Taylor had lived three lives with three very different women in three separate cities. And when these three women all show up at his funeral, suspicions run high. Detective Adams soon finds herself delving through marital secrets and broken love in order to track down a murderer inside this deceitful web of lies.
Highly-charged, gripping, and surprising, "A Circle of Wives" dissects the dynamics of love and marriage, trust and jealousy, and asks the terrifying question: how well do you really know your spouse?
