From the Editor

As much as I love thrillers, I also have a knack for getting hopelessly lost in complex plots. (Hey, everyone needs a talent.) So when I come across a book that takes me on a wild ride, keeps me guessing, and surprises me more than once—and manages to do all of this without ever confusing me—I have to shout about it.

The Widow File, S.G. Redling's new novel, is propelled by three main characters: Dani Britton, the smart, flinty, in-over-her-head protagonist; Choo-Choo Charbaneux, her best friend, who also happens to be an obsessive-compulsive nerd underwear model; and Tom Booker, the hired assassin out to kill Dani—who just might be the best thing that's ever happened to her. To say more would rob you of the pleasure of experiencing the story yourself, but if you love a twisty, smart political thriller, this will be right up your alley. And while The Widow File's thrills never let up, it also somehow morphs into one of the most unlikely love stories you're likely to read anytime soon. Redling has delivered a memorable, witty book, populated by characters you believe in and care about.

And while I'm raving about The Widow File, I have to tell you my favorite story about its author. When I first read her first novel, Flowertown, in manuscript and knew immediately that I had to acquire it, I called her up.

Me: "I love that the main character is kind of bitter and slatternly."
Redling: "I do, too—she's based on me!"

And a beautiful friendship was born.

- Terry Goodman, Acquiring Editor


Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Intuitive analyst Dani Britton, retrieving materials from home after a job is scrubbed, returns to the exclusive private security firm Rasmund in the Washington, D.C., suburbs to find her colleagues dead, her workplace ransacked, and the hit team still in place. Using all of her resources, she teams with debonair audio analyst Sinclair “Choo-Choo” Charbaneaux, who got out of his office undetected, to escape from Rasmund and try to figure out what’s happened. Initially it’s a cat-and-mouse game between the fugitive pair and head assassin Booker, who comes to admire Dani so much that he dreads having to kill her. Then things go south for Booker and his client, who’s desperate to get the Widow File that Dani knows nothing about but presumably possesses, and the chase continues unabated as the body count mounts. Redling (Flowertown, 2012) may owe a nod to James Grady’s Six Days of the Condor for the initial action, but she soon diverges from Grady’s plot, with hair-raising scenes of Dani and Choo-Choo on the Rasmund roof just before a deadly explosion. Well-wrought characters add emotional depth to this adrenaline-fueled espionage thriller, which offers a revealing glimpse of the Washington, D.C., intelligence community. --Michele Leber
