When Phil Kramer is shot dead on a deserted suburban street in the middle of the night, his wife, Emily, is left with an emptied bank account and a lot of questions. How could Phil leave her penniless? What was he going to do with the money? And, most of all, who was he if he wasn't the man she thought she married? Jerry Hobart has some questions of his own. It's none of his business why he was hired to kill Phil Kramer. But now that he's been ordered to take out Kramer's widow, he figures there's a bigger secret at work—and maybe a bigger payoff. As they race to find the secret Phil Kramer so masterfully hid, both Hobart and Emily must question where their true loyalties lie and how much they owe those who have been unfaithful to them. In Fidelity, Thomas Perry delivers another riveting thriller. Download and start listening now!

    Booklist (starred review)

  • A spunky but believable heroine, an emotionally conflicted killer, a plot whose twists you will not anticipate.... Fidelity is a winner. Library Journal Starred Review
  • “Perry intrigues as always with spare, intelligent prose.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Saundra | 2/12/2014

    " I'm pretty new to Tom Perry but I am really enjoying his work. His writing is smart and doesn't insult his readers. This was a good read...well listen actually. Excellent narrator too. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 2/9/2014

    " Definitely not his best nor as good as his Jane Whitefield books. Refreshing that the main characters were so different from each other and they didn't get together romantically like in so many other author's mystery fiction books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deborah | 2/7/2014

    " Started out ok, but became rather disappointing, and very anticlimactic. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alisa | 1/26/2014

    " I got halfway into this book and decided I didn't like the main character, didn't find the bad guy particularly interesting, and honestly didn't care what the solution to the central mystery was - not even to the point of bothering to flip through and read the end. I really loved Perry's earlier books, but this one just didn't work for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nette | 1/25/2014

    " Oh, I love Thomas Perry, he's such a good writer and his books move like bullet trains. But he seriously scares me. Many of his books feature professional hit men, and this guy knows WAY too much about the details of being a hit man. I'm convinced it's first-hand knowledge. Plus, according to the book jackets, he lives here in Southern California. He could be watching my house right now -- not directly in front, where he might be seen, but up by the corner in a nondescript sedan in a neutral color. So listen, Mr. Perry, the reason I only gave you four stars is that I'm saving the five stars for next year when you bring back the Jane Whitfield series after 10 years. OK? Look, just don't hurt my cat. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrick | 1/25/2014

    " This was a great read - the characters were very well done, and the plot was developed in a very effective manner "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jenna | 1/17/2014

    " I've enjoyed all the other Thomas Perry books I've read, but couldn't get into this one. I just couldn't connect with the main character -- she was too cold and shut down. I ended up returning the book to the library without completing it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 1/15/2014

    " I started reading Thomas Perry for the Jane Whitefield novels, and all of his other books since then have been pretty hit or miss for me. Fidelity, one of his stand-alones, did manage to hold my attention for the whole book, and was a quick read, so it wins in that regard. Another airport book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 1/15/2014

    " I am a sucker for any Thomas Perry book and this was no different. It was not my favorite but it was still a very compelling story told in a manner that would not let me put it down until I got to the final word. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ceilidh Lerwick | 12/16/2013

    " Just didn't hold my attention like other books he has written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phil | 12/12/2013

    " A typical thriller. Action leading plot - just don't stop to think about the actions and events, or you may doubt the thrills. I think I should give up on the mainstream novels of this sort. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Virginia | 12/9/2013

    " This was okay. Not my favorite mystery, but interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol | 11/8/2013

    " I got this book signed by the author. It was the first time I had ever asked and author to sign a book. I've become such the fangirl in my 40's. I will always recommend Thomas Perry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lois Duncan | 11/7/2013

    " You can't go wrong with a suspense novel by Thomas Perry! He knows how to write a true page-turner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom | 6/28/2013

    " Probably Perry's weakest (I think I've read all his novels). OK for fans, but newcomers should look elsewhere, say The Butcher's Boy or one of the Jane Whitefield series (I forget which is the earliest...). "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Becky | 4/21/2013

    " Could there be a less exciting thriller written? 'Nuf said. "

    " I have been a fan of Perry's books for some time and found this a tremendous disappointment. I didn't like any of the characters and he did so little to develop them. A page flipper, not a page turner. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Lea | 12/12/2012

    " This is a great author. I've read all his books. I love his Jane Whitfield series as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Verena | 9/8/2012

    " This book was surprising terrific. I borrowed it as an ebook from the library, just because it was new and I liked the description. A very well written suspense novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara | 6/14/2012

    " Fast paced read all about a PI who is murdered and his wife finds out why.... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debi | 4/25/2012

    " I adore most of what Thomas Perry writes, unfortunately this book just didn't live up to his usually well written novels. The plot was unbelievable for me. I'm still a Perry fan and eagerly await his latest Jane Whitefield novel "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott Archer | 4/22/2012

    " I enjoy Thomas Perry over Sue Grafton, Michael Connelly or Lee Child. He is a much better writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Craig | 4/11/2012

    " This was the best thriller I've read (or listened to) in a while. It has lots of twists and I think that the characters were pretty well developed. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Steffy | 8/7/2011

    " This book was one very long run-on sentence. Just dreadful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 8/23/2010

    " Truly gripping story. Couldn't put it down till I was done. Throughout the book you go through hate, love, sympathy and disgust towards the main characters. Story well told and feel very satisfied the way it ends. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Virginia | 8/16/2010

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tina | 1/10/2010

    " After reading other reviews it seems that for my first Perry book I picked the weakest. I may give him another chance in the future but it certainly isn't because of the book. It was readable but not quite a thriller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lois | 11/4/2009

    " Splendid! Interesting. Well written. Surprising--which I can't say often in connection with a genre book. Probably deserves five stars; I might revise after I've read some more by him. "
