The Dew Breaker by Edwidge Danticat

A "dew breaker" is a torturer, and this is the story of a man (and former dew breaker) living in the US with his family. His secret is that he was a dew breaker back in his home of Haiti. This book consists of interrelated stories around the dew breaker and his family, neighbors, and victims.

Heavy and serious. Not exactly an enjoyable book content-wise, but if you're looking for some solid literature, check it out.

Thanks for the recommendation, Mia!

Hi Elaine! Thanks for your recommendation for The Husband's Secret- I just finished it and loved it! I would have passed it on as chick-lit based on the cover, if it weren't for your review!
