About the Book

Three wives, one letter, and an explosive secret that will change everything.

He said, she said. Who do you believe?

Jessica, Stephanie and Priyanka are complete strangers, but they have one thing in common: they’ve each received a letter accusing their husbands of committing a sexual assault more than two decades prior. Is the accusation true or is there more to the story? It was a secret that remained buried for years.

With their worlds suddenly turned upside down, they don’t know who to trust—a complete stranger or the men they love and built their lives with. The three women come together to embark on a hunt for the truth, but they are hardly prepared for what they will discover. Who is the victim, and will justice ultimately be served?

“An emotional and powerfully evocative story. Ray has expertly crafted a thoughtful and important read that ends with a stunning surprise." —Liv Constantine, bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish

“Multilayered, unflinchingly honest, and teeming with nerve-shattering suspense, Good Husbands by Cate Ray had me flying through the pages. Ray has created a much needed space for complex conversations surrounding consent and whether we really know the people we love. An absolute triumph.” —Heather Gudenkauf, bestselling author of The Overnight Guest

“The most riveting and unflinching he said/she said novel to date, Good Husbands follows three women whose lives are set on a collision course upon the arrival of an unsettling letter about each of their husbands. Absolutely staggering, insanely gripping, and wholly unputdownable, this riveting, unsettling suspense will leave you gasping for air and for answers and will have you turning the pages until the last, final, astonishing twist. With her hypnotic, dazzling prose and captivating characters, Cate Ray is a masterful storyteller at the height of her powers.”
—May Cobb, author of The Hunting Wives

Good Husbands is both a gripping thriller and a thought-provoking exploration of toxic masculinity and female friendship. I couldn’t put it down.” —Sarah Haywood, bestselling author of The Cactus -
