Netgalley Review: The Perfect Wife by J.P. Delaney

I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for my review of this book, all opinions are 100% my own.


The Perfect Wife by J.P. Delaney

Pages: 432

Genre: Thriller

Publisher: Ballantine Books

Publication Date: August 6, 2019

Rating: 5/5

This is a fast paced thriller where the main character, Abbie, is an AI replica of a tech owner’s wife. The original Abbie went missing after a surfing accident and her husband was so devastated at the loss of her that he used his company and their background of building robots to create the first AI person. This book is told in two different perspectives. The first one being the robot Abbie and the second being an employee of her husband Tim’s tech company. I loved the way the two perspectives shaped the story and worked so well together. I found myself really looking forward to what was going to happen next on both sides of the story.

I read this book so quickly because the suspense stayed pretty consistent throughout the entire read. There are a lot of twist and turns during the story and most of them worked really well. A couple of them felt out of place but overall this is another fantastic thriller from J.P. Delaney. Also, for all the people who are like me and thought that this is a far fetched sci fi thriller, Delaney lets us know that this technology is currently being developed and talked about. So if we think about it, this has the potential of being labelled as a domestic thriller.

If you are a fan of Delaney’s previous books than I definitely think you would like this one as well. I think his books are consistently good and I will forever read anything he writes.  If you are in the mood for a fast paced thriller that will constantly keep you on your toes I highly recommend this on to you.
