The Black Widows by Jane Finch is a fictitious thriller about three women who plan and plot the deaths of their ruthless, wealthy husbands. How could these women be so unscrupulous? Was it greed or revenge? As their painful childhood truths unfold, I couldn’t help but empathize with Finch’s characters, Jessica, Caprice, and Suzannah. Like the spider weaving her web, the author spins three well-developed stories of love, loss, death, betrayal and triumph. These women are true examples of narcissists, and this book is not your normal run of the mill thriller. I couldn’t put the book down until I found out what happened next. “Never underestimate a woman scorned.”

Through the eyes of Jane Finch, The Black Widows should have you scrambling to get your worldly affairs in order. The author beckons us on with page after page of murderous incidents that left me shaking my head and pondering the meaning of Karma as the plot thickens for these three villainesses - Jessica, Caprice and Suzannah - who seem to get away with murder for decades, or have they? While reading this novel, I felt as though I was looking into the mind of psychological killers via a peephole. Just when I thought the story was over, the author provides historical articles with true crimes of passion and their outcomes. A welcome surprise, and definitely not the ending I expected for these Black Widows. Welcome to the world of adult fiction. If you fancy stories like Fatal Attraction and Natural Born Killers, you’ll enjoy reading this book; there's never a dull moment.
