For some reason (maybe the blurb at the back of the book, or the comparisons with Gone Girl), I read this book thinking it was going to be a thriller. Turns out that there are some thrills in it, but it’s more of a woman’s fiction kind of book – somewhere along the lines of The Escape Artist. I must be living under a rock or something, but it seems like there’s a new lighter, more emotional sort of thriller that’s getting popular these days.
Here’s a teaser, that I thought was quite true in general about long-married couples. What do you think?
