“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….

“A murder mystery filled with dirty secrets and moneyed mayhem.” (People)

"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)
“If you were to transplant Big Little Lies (the TV series, not Liane Moriarty’s book) from Monterey, California … to Brooklyn’s Park Slope, it would look a bit like Kimberly McCreight’s A Good Marriage.… What lifts A Good Marriage above high-level chick-lit status is its legal-thriller aspect, which keeps the story churning urgently along.” (Air Mail)

What follows is a page turner with twists and turns that keeps the reader reading well into the night. Kimberly McCreight has written a gripping read.
At the center of the story are Lizzie and Amanda with a cast of interesting characters on the periphery. While reading this I thought I had figured out who the killer was but I was wrong. Brilliantly laid out this is a Five Star must read. I do hope Hollywood takes notice as this would make a terrific motion picture.
I was really pleased to see that they would be making this book into a show on Amazon. Can’t wait! Hats off, Kimberly! :)
Ok, the first couple. They’ve just moved from Palo Alto to Brooklyn because he sold his wildly successful start-up and is now looking to finance something new. The kid is in a private school and the wife is staying at home and has already met her people. They are ensconced in said school and all things social and adore her already. Husband works, works, works.
Residing a stone’s throw from the ladies’ well-appointed brownstones in Park Slope, but not looking to play in their sandbox, is go-getter former federal prosecutor now working her way up the corporate law firm ladder. Her husband is trying to get sober after having single-handedly ruined his career as a journalist. Things take a big turn when she gets a call from an old law school friend who needs her help, desperately. We’re not talking he wants to work on a case together. He is locked up at Rikers.
Marriages on the rocks. An unexpected death. A mysterious childhood secret. The suspense will kill you. Enjoy.
The story revolves around three couples, whose children all attend the same private school. The setting is Park Slope, NY, a tony section of Brooklyn.
It starts with the death of one of the women in a most horrific manner.As the story weaves its way, you learn about secrets, lies and betrayals among the couple's and the defense attorney, Lizzie, and her spouse.
A very good read that I would definitely recommend!
“When Amanda, the gorgeous wife of start-up millionaire Zach Grayson, is discovered dead at the bottom of the stairs in her stately Brooklyn brownstone, her husband is immediately fingered as the primary suspect. Zach calls Lizzie, his law school classmate, hoping their shared history will convince her to come to his aid. A former U.S. Attorney with no violent crime experience, Lizzie reluctantly agrees to represent him, though the two haven't seen each other in years. As she works to exonerate Zach, Lizzie is drawn into the privilege, passion, and excess churning beneath Park Slope, Brooklyn's idyllic, virtuous streets. It's a world that's completely foreign to Lizzie, but, if she's honest, also unexpectedly intriguing-particularly in light of the increasingly steep cost of keeping her own troubled marriage afloat. Zach's case proves less clear cut than Lizzie anticipated, though-especially after revelations surface about the racy party he and Amanda attended the night before she died.”
Thank you talented Ms. McCreight for your thrilling imagination!!! What I loved about this book was the intrigue, I wasn’t ever for sure which direction things were headed! I figured one direction, then BAM, another fact takes us off the beaten path! I don’t want to say more than the blurb on the off chance I give something away!!!!
Lizzie Kitsakis is an attorney who is asked by an old law school friend of hers for representation when he's arrested in the murder of his wife. This book goes back and forth between a group of high society friends, their sordid pasts, their children, a security breach in their child's school's computer system, Lizzie's past, Lizzie's alcoholic husband...There seems to be too many storylines going on at once, although I will say that once I got about 2/3 of the way through it kind of picked up.

The story is well-written but not my cup of tea.
No, actually, I've devoured it and have had to finish it right after I started it.
The characters, the plot, the style—it all works out perfectly like a well-oiled mechanism. Nothing fails, and your enjoyment is guaranteed to be absolute!
I definitely recommend A Good Marriage by Kimberly McCreight to all legal thrillers fans and anyone looking for a fast-paced, absorbing, and well-crafted storyline!
Ti fa girare le pagine perché tutto si rivela all'ultimo momento.
Ti fa anche riflettere sulle motivazioni perché decidono a vivere insieme, sulla comunicazione do coppia: le cose rivelate, quelle non dette e le conseguenze quando non si fa verità fin dall'inizio.
Veramente un bellissimo libro.
Consiglio di leggerlo nella lingua originale per chi ha una decente conoscenza dell'inglese.
