For Better or Worse: Twisted Marriage Thrillers

For Better or Worse:  Twisted Marriage Thrillers

Fictional thrillers dealing with twisted marriages, like Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and Before I Go to Sleep by S. J. Watson, have been very popular lately. Both novels are coming out as movies this fall. These books have a psychological suspense element that includes lies, secrets, and betrayals. It is not clear immediately who is telling the truth, and the reader's perception changes as secrets and betrayals are revealed. Often there is a sense that one of the individuals in the marriage is in danger from the other one, but the reader isn’t always quite sure until the end of the book. Explore this suspenseful genre with these audiobooks.
