Ten years ago he killed my son. Today I married him.
Ten years ago my darling son Jesse was murdered and our perfect family was destroyed. My strong, handsome boy, so full of life, became a memory, a photo I carried with me everywhere.
But today I’m finally close to finding happiness again. My ash-blonde hair has been curled into ringlets. Carefully placed white flowers frame my delicate features. The small, drab chapel has been prettied up with white satin, and there are tiny red hearts scattered on the small table where I will soon sign the register with my new husband.
The man who killed my son.
My friends and family can’t understand it. My neighbours whisper in the street whenever I walk past. How can I love a man like Tom?
They don’t really know me at all…
The most unputdownable psychological thriller you’ll read this year from the bestselling author K.L. Slater. If you love The Wife Between Us or Gone Girl, you’ll be totally hooked on The Marriage.

Really enjoyed reading this book and had me hooked. So wonderfully written as are all of K.L Slater’s books. Great characters was sad for it to end!
This wasn’t up to the usual KL Slater standard. Dull and uninteresting. I very nearly gave up on it early on but I persevered in the hope it would improve. It didn’t at all and there was a disappointing predictable ending.
Great story. Brilliant twist!
