Dexter
meets Mr. and Mrs. Smith in this wildly compulsive debut thriller about a couple whose fifteen-year marriage has finally gotten too interesting...

Our love story is simple. I met a gorgeous woman. We fell in love. We had kids. We moved to the suburbs. We told each other our biggest dreams, and our darkest secrets. And then we got bored.

We look like a normal couple. We're your neighbors, the parents of your kid's friend, the acquaintances you keep meaning to get dinner with.

We all have our secrets to keeping a marriage alive.

Ours just happens to be getting away with murder.

Customer Reviews

Love not a hater ,

Too slow for me, but still a good read

Very slow. Don’t believe all of the reviews claiming that there are twists and turns all the time. Although there are a few, the book feels sooooo long. Not grammatically advanced, but believable and reasonable. Could be read by a 4th grader although the content wouldn’t permit. Would recommend.

Shocking and Intense

I think this story might be crazier than Gone Girl. Good read.

Great read but hated ending

I enjoyed this book so much until the very end—great page turner. But the end ruined it. Millicent was so careful and smart throughout the book, so it’s hard to believe she would just flat out confess to her husband when he could be recording the conversation and with her kids right there in the house. Plus, why would her daughter stab her without knowing the full story. It just didn’t make any sense. So much lead up and suspense to end like that was disappointing.
