      Marilu Henner is watchable as the Governor's Wife / homicidal mother in law to be from hell. The story gets too outrageous as she offs /10(). But this one is the well named Governor's Wife as she takes front and center in a book more about social justice and politics than the law. Lindsay Bonner is the wife of Texas Governor Bode Bonner. In her life before she became first lady of Texas, she had worked as a Trauma Nurse/5().

    The Governor's Wife is a hard-eyed look at the intersection of the political and the personal, at the perils of trusting even those closest to us, and the collateral damage of our highest aspirations. Stylish, knock-out suspense from a modern master. It’s been two years since disgraced Illinois governor Ray Perry disappeared from a federal courthouse in Chicago moments after being sentenced to 37 years in prison on corruption charges. P.I. Michael Kelly gets an anonymous email offering to pay him nearly a quarter of a million dollars if he will find Perry. Kelly’s investigation begins with the woman Perry left behind his wife.

      This is the first Mark Gimenez book I have read, and I won't be rushing out to buy another. Although the Governor's wife features in the novel, the story is not really about her, hence I question the title. It's more about American politics in general, with no depth of feeling coming through in any of the main characters/5().   Buy The Governor's Wife by Mark Gimenez (ISBN: ) from Amazon's Book Store. Everyday low prices and free delivery on eligible orders/5().
