The True Story Of A Husband's Ultimate Betrayal
Mary Turner Thomson
List Price £7.99
In April 2006, Mary Turner Thomson received a call that blew her life apart. The woman on the other end of the line told her that Will Jordan, Mary's husband and the father of her two younger children, had been married to her for fourteen years and they had five children together.
The Bigamist is the shocking true story of how one man manipulated an intelligent, independent woman, conning her out of £200,000 and leaving her to bring up the children he claimed he could never have.
It's a story we all think could never happen to us, but this shameless con man has been doing the same thing to various other women for at least 27 years, spinning a tangled web of lies and deceit to cover his tracks.
How far would you go to help the man you love? How far would he go to deceive you? And what would you do when you found out it was all a lie?
- 17/12/2008 I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, as I thought it might be a bit 'misery memoir'-ish. However, I ended up finding it really gripping - Mary Turner Thomson is a very down-to-earth narrator who tells her story clearly and even with humour, despite the horrific experience she went through. I look forward to seeing what else she might write in the future.
