Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes international best-selling author Alafair Burke to the studio. About my guest: Alafair Burke is the New York Times and internationally bestselling author of sixteen novels. Her most recent psychological thriller, THE WIFE, has been praised as "sneaky" , "schemey", "twisty" , and "tantalizing". THE WIFE was selected as a best-of-the-month pick by Amazon and others. It is being adapted as a feature film, with Alafair writing the screenplay. About the book: This is a stunning domestic thriller in which a woman must make the impossible choice between defending her husband and saving herself. When Angela met Jason Powell while catering a dinner party in East Hampton, she assumed their romance would be a short-lived fling, like so many relationships between locals and summer visitors. To her surprise, Jason, a brilliant economics professor at NYU, had other plans, and they married the following summer.She and her son were finally able to move out of her mother’s home to Manhattan, where no one knew about her tragic past. Six years later, thanks to a bestselling book and a growing media career, Jason has become a cultural lightning rod, placing Angela near the spotlight she worked so carefully to avoid. When a college intern makes an accusation against Jason, and another woman, Kerry Lynch, comes forward with an even more troubling allegation, their perfect life begins to unravel. Jason insists he is innocent, and Angela believes him. But when Kerry disappears, Angela is forced to take a closer look—at both the man she married and the women she chose not to believe.
