“‘Big Little Lies’ meets ‘Rebecca’ in Sarah Pinborough’s ‘Dead to Her,’ a saucy novel about insecure second wives dragged down by secrets [and] jealousies…” —Washington Post
For fans of Liane Moriarty, Liv Constantine and Lisa Jewell, a twisty psychological thriller about a savvy second wife who will do almost anything to come out on top from the New York Times bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes.
Marriage can be murder…
Marcie’s affair with Jason Maddox catapulted her into the world of the elite.
Old money, old ties, old secrets. Marcie may have married into this world—
but she’ll never be part of it.
Then Jason’s boss brings back a new wife from his trip to London.
Young, attractive, reckless—nobody can take their eyes off Keisha.
Including Marcie’s husband.
SOMETHING YOU CAN NEVER, EVER UNDO…
Some people would kill for the life Marcie has—what will she do to keep it?
This soapy domestic suspense novel from Pinborough (Cross Her Heart) roils with passion, rancor, and greed wrapped in Southern politesse. As the second wife of Savannah, Ga., attorney Jason Maddox, 34-year-old Marcie is the youngest, most attractive woman in the couple's wealthy social circle until Jason's widowed boss, William Radford, returns from London with a gorgeous bride, 22-year-old Keisha, a former cocktail waitress. Marcie loathes the way her husband ogles Keisha, but agrees to befriend the young woman ostensibly to manipulate Keisha into encouraging William's retirement, thus rendering Jason senior partner, but also to monitor her competition. The relationship between Marcie and Keisha takes an unexpected turn as their respective stories unfold via an alternating third-person narrative. Tension increases in tandem with Marcie's suspicion and paranoia; meanwhile, Keisha's sanity shreds as William's domineering nature emerges. Pinbrough's intricately woven mystery will please fans of B.A. Paris and Paula Hawkins.
