Overview

Succesful illustrator, Julia Green, believes she's living the American dream in suburban Houston until she begins having sleepwalking nightmares featuring her husband, Austin, as a knife thrower with scantily clad Julia strapped to his target.

And Austin's aim is regrettably poor.

Julia paints scenes from her dreams, and in analyzing them, realizes that what her friend, Trix, said is true, that 'she doesn't see what is right in front of her'. Soon, as Julia questions her lifestyle and state of mind, her observations light the wick on an explosive cache of suspicions and repressed secrets.

When an unexpected tragedy occurs, Julia becomes the focus of the media and police, and she must cast off her submissive persona, find inner strength, and navigate treacherous waters to her long-overdue awakening.

About the Author

While Sheila McGraw is well known for her children's and how-to craft books, with her new murder-mystery, The Knife Thrower's Wife, she trades the kid-lit sandbox for the grown-ups' steamy hot tub, confirming that for McGraw, no genre is off limits. Set in Houston, The Knife Thrower's Wife is a twisty, dark, yet at times humorous, domestic-suspense story of one woman's midlife awakening. McGraw started her career as an illustrator and writer for fashion houses and magazines. She transitioned to publishing when she was hired to illustrate the children's classic, Love You Forever, which has gone on to sell more than 32 million copies. McGraw followed with 15 books, including several bestsellers. In 2006, McGraw permanently swapped Canadian snow for Texas sunshine. She resides in a waterfront community in Galveston County, where, if she isn't at her keyboard or easel, she can be found gardening or relaxing by the water. She is the mother of three grown sons.
