About the Book

Grace Sachs, a happily married therapist with a young son, thinks she knows everything about women, men and marriage. She is about to publish a book called You Should Have Known, based on her pet theory: women don't value their intuition about what men are really like, leading to serious trouble later on. But how well does Grace know her own husband? She is about to find out, and in place of what she thought she knew, there will be a violent death, a missing husband and a chain of terrible revelations.

'A superior example of the now popular psycho-thriller genre that Gillian Flynn pioneered with Gone Girl ... Nail-biting.' Evening Standard

'Flat-out compelling psychological suspense that reminds us that smart women sometimes can make the most foolish choices ... This excellent thriller, rich in plot twists, teasers, red herrings, and I-didn't-see-that-coming moments... artfully combines wit and suspense into an irresistible domestic nightmare.' Washington Post

'A witty, often insightful examination of marriage with the pace of a psychological thriller.' Observer

'It certainly kept me up at night.' Daily Telegraph

'Significantly superior domestic noir.' Independent

“A great psychological thriller ... I couldn't put it down.”
- Daisy Goodwin
“Korelitz has managed to combine a nail-biting narrative with an astute exploration into why the people we lie to most are ourselves ... What a winning combination this is: highly recommended for Gone Girl fans who will have been disappointed by most of the other lame knock-offs currently on offer.”
- Evening Standard
