A Good Marriage


"McCreight’s law credentials lend authenticity to the legal proceedings and to Lizzie’s high-stakes tango with a formidable assistant district attorney eager to put her in her place. Lizzie’s narrative alternates with one that details Amanda’s movements for a few days before her murder, and McCreight expertly weaves multiple plot threads with a few sly red herrings, paving the way to a series of surprising, and satisfying, reveals. A smartly plotted and altogether successful union of legal thriller and domestic suspense."
Kirkus Reviews

"Bestseller McCreight (Reconstructing Amelia) expertly blends domestic drama with a gripping murder mystery... Filled with credible plot twists and realistically flawed characters, McCreight’s page-turner presses readers to question everything they think makes a 'good' marriage. This will stay with the reader long after the finish."
