Rate this:
Thomas H. Cook offers one of his most compelling novels ever in Sandrine's Case , in which a college professor falls in love with his wife all over again...while on trial for her murder.

Samuel Madison always wondered what Sandrine saw in him. He was a meek, stuffy doctorate student, and she a brilliant, beautiful, bohemian with limitless talents and imagination. On the surface their relationship and marriage semed perfectly tranquil: jobs at the same small, liberal arts college, a precocious young daughter, a home filled with art and literature, and trips to some of the world's most beautiful cities and towns. And then one night Sandrine is found dead in their bed and Samuel is accused of her murder.

As the truth about their often tumultuous relationship comes to light, Samuel must face a town and media convinced of his guilt, a daughter whose faith in her father has been shaken to its core, and astonishing revelations about his wife that make him fall in love with her for a second time. A searing novel about love lost and rediscovered, from one of our greatest chroniclers of the human heart.

i don't usually read psychological thrillers, but a friend recommended this and so I gave it a try. This is a very good book that tells the story of the struggle for one man's soul through his trial for the murder of his wife. The death was a suicide, but it causes him to question himself and his life. Excellent reading.

Though interesting, Cook's last five books have centered on women an the thrust appears more as academic tool in english then his prior mystery books
