Tricia Fields (tricia_fields) I'm working on a project and need the titles of books where a wife murders her husband - of course trying to commit the perfect crime. Seems like there would be dozens of mysteries around this topic, but I can't think of any! Any ideas?

James Joyce (james_patrick_joyce) | 27 comments First to my mind was Double Indemnity.

Double Indemnity by James M. Cain

Thanks! I've never read it, but the description looks good. It's on my want to read list now.

James Joyce (james_patrick_joyce) | 27 comments Very worth the read, even without your project.

James Joyce (james_patrick_joyce) | 27 comments Then watch the movie, which is different in a number of major ways (including the ending), but also well-worth the watch.

Hoped to download it on Amazon Prime, but it isn't available. I'll find it though. It looks good.

Thanks!"

I just saw this is by Stephen King - I'll definitely have to read. I just finished his new book, Revival, and really liked it.

Tricia Fields (tricia_fields) Thanks Chrizette and Kathryn! I'll look them both up. I actually set out to find a Patterson book, and couldn't find one. The Honeymoon is perfect!

Honeymoon has a sequel called Second Honeymoon, which was even better than the first, in my opinion.

LOL, Bill!

R.M.F. Brown | 239 comments It's a short story but Roald Dahl's tales of the unexpected features the perfect crime of a wife murdering her husband. Lamb to the slaughter I think it's called.

Alex Dolan (alexdolan) Try The Good Wife. Wonderful book!

Prakash Khanchandani | 52 comments By which author, Alex? Amazon has multiple books with this title.

Alex Dolan (alexdolan) My mistake. The Silent Wife by ASA Harrison.

Apparently Alex has multiple posts, for this title, too.
