Good Marriage by Kimberly McCreight

What makes a good marriage? Does a marriage survive or die because of its secrets? A Good Marriage addresses some of the questions surrounding marriage, and offers a glimpse into several marriages.

Lizzie is an attorney working at her law firm late at night (as some firm lawyers do), when she receives a phone call from Zach, a former classmate of hers. His wife, Amanda, was found dead at the bottom of their brownstone’s home and Zach is in custody at Riker’s – he’s the prime suspect.


Told in alternating perspectives, this is a gripping thriller that keeps you guessing at every turn.  I find thrillers hard to review without either identifying the red herrings or spoiling the mystery, so I will just leave a few words that I think describe what you’re in for when you pick this up: sex party, lies, conflicting motives, revenge, stalkers, unreliable narrators. I loved this story and couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend if you want a story that causes you to keep saying, “what. the. bleep?!”
