The Ex-Husband by Karen Hamilton

Where is Sam? He was always there with Charlotte making some deal or conning someone but now he is missing.

Charlotte met Sam on a cruise, he proposed on an airplane, and he taught her the tricks of his trade….conning rich folks on cruises to give money to a cause or to steal their jewels.

We move from THEN and NOW.

THEN was when Charlotte and Sam were on cruises and NOW is when we see Charlotte on her own but receiving threats and having the police ask her if she knows Sam is missing, and if she knows where he is.

When Charlotte gets anonymous e-mails demanding money and warnings about complying with what the anonymous person asks, she starts to get nervous.

She again is left cleaning up the mess Sam made and now with people seeking revenge.  Where can he be?

She then gets a job on a cruise line, but someone knows about her past. 

Who could it be?  

Who is threatening her to pay a million pounds?

Who thinks she has that kind of money?

Is Sam alive and behind it?

Charlotte gets worried when a bracelet Sam took from her appears on her pillow with a note that time is ticking for her to come up with the million pounds.

THE EX-HUSBAND takes us on cruise ships and has an undertone of menace as we wonder how Charlotte and Sam got away with what they did and how we follow Charlotte and her fears about what is going on.

If you enjoy Karen Hamilton’s books and her always-great endings, you won’t want to miss her newest. 4/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
