About the Book

In this relentlessly twisty literary thriller from New York Times bestselling author Kimberly McCreight, a desperate intervention brings together a group of college friends 10 years after graduation—a reunion marked by lies, betrayal, and murder.

Everyone has those friends. Doesn’t matter how long it’s been, or how badly they’ve occasionally behaved, or how late it is when that call finally comes—you show up. No questions asked.

Honestly, that’s how the five of us ended up here in the Catskills. We did have the best of intentions. Especially after what happened to Alice all those years ago, we can’t bear to think of losing anyone else. In fact, we’ll do anything to make sure that doesn’t happen. We’ll go so much farther than we ever thought we would.  

In the end, maybe that’s what caught up with us. That, and the fact that we’re such a complicated group—so much history and so many big personalities. Secrets, too, that can slip out at the most inopportune moments. Of course, we love each other despite all of those things. We love each other no matter what.

There’s something so beautiful about that kind of unconditional love. It can turn ugly, though. Or maybe that’s just us. After all, we’ve already been through so much together. And we have so very much to hide.     

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“A brilliantly constructed puzzle of a novel -- using a shifting kaleidoscope of unique voices, McCreight hands us all the pieces and forces us to assemble them into a shocking portrait of regret, grief, and dark loyalty.”  - Julie Clark, author of The Last Flight

"What a pleasure to race through a novel so tightly written and expertly twisty! Kimberly McCreight takes us through a juicy labyrinth of lies and secrets among a privileged set of friends you’ll love to hate, and hate to love. Sharp, dark, and a great escape.” - Ashley Audrain, author of The Push

A Good Marriage is a smart, provocative, insightful page-turner. I couldn’t put it down.” - Harlan Coben, author of The Boy from the Woods, on A Good Marriage

"What makes a good marriage – in fact and fiction? Kimberly McCreight takes a gimlet-eyed attempt at answering that question in the irresistible domestic drama, A Good Marriage." - Washington Post on A Good Marriage

“The characters look as if their lives are perfect, but their greatest skill is their ability to conceal the adultery, substance abuse and financial ruin percolating underneath. . . . McCreight is particularly adept at parsing the small but telling details of life among Park Slope’s elite.” - New York Times Book Review on A Good Marriage

 "Full of dark secrets and surprising twists, A Good Marriage explores what lies beneath the surface of friendships, families, and communities. A captivating psychological thriller that gripped me from beginning to end." - Megan Miranda, author of The Last House Guest
