A NoveleBook - 2013
The wife may be the last to know, but she’s the first to come out on top in this tale of marital betrayal and delicious comeuppance by bestselling author Fay Weldon When Worst Fears opens, Alexandra Ludd has been a widow for less than seventy hours, her husband, Ned, former theater critic and stay-at-home father to their young son, Sascha, having died of an apparent heart attack. Alexandra, beautiful, adored darling of the London stage, is too overcome with grief to realize she’s been lied to: Ned didn’t keel over in the dining room, as her good friends told her. He died in their marital bed—and he wasn’t alone. At first Alexandra’s in denial, but when Ned’s mistress starts stalking her, she must face the truth: The man she loved was unfaithful. To add insult to injury, it seems everyone knew about Ned and dumpy, middle-aged, married Jenny Linden. A scathing exposé of infidelity, Worst Fears is Fay Weldon at her most fiendishly funny and cutting.
