That book cover creeped me out, and that is one major reason why I wanted to read another one of those domestic thrillers. It's the age of such books, where there's not a single person whom one can root for in the story, where each and every character is downright nasty and unlikable and most of them with a whole lot of crazy issues. The Woman Inside is a crazy thriller. Rebecca and Paul have been married for 20 years but their marriage has hit the rock bottom with Rebecca's opiod addiction and Paul's adultery. Both of them lie to each other at every chance they get. Of course there's someone dead and when the police discover it, the body is not the one expected. There are enough twists and turns in the story to keep the reader hooked and it's no wonder it has been compared to the one book that started this craze, Gone Girl!
The story at most places felt shallow with the initial focus on Paul's and Rebecca's POV but then opening up to many voices including the lead detectives of the case. I really would have loved to 'like' at least one character in the story but just for the thrill elements, it succeeds enormously.
