A Good Marriage-Kimberly McCreight

SUMMER THRILLER ALERT!!

All Lizzie wanted to do growing up was to work in the US Attorney’s office. She knew she had the work ethic and the brains to boot. But when her husband who has a pretty heavy drinking problem gets into a costly accident, Lizzie must enter the world of corporate lawyers to financially support them both. She gets a call from one of her old law school friends, Zach, asking Lizzie to defend him for an assault charge against a police officer. Zach then tells her he was distraught because he had just found his wife’s battered and deceased body. She is hesitant to say the least and doesn’t want to get involved. She tells Zach she isn’t that kind of lawyer but when venting to her boss, her boss insists she takes the case. The more Lizzie digs, the less she wants to see of her former friend but now has to prove his innocence in a court of law.

She receives an ominous letter and fears her past has finally caught up to her. Now she must hide in the Arctic tundra until the last boat of the season leaves the island. But as much as she loves this landscape she will not let it be the last thing she sees before she dies. She will fight to survive by any means necessary.

The Split is 461 pages long and took me three days to read.

I’m giving this book a 3.5 out of 5! I really enjoyed it but I had Ms. Bolton’s last novel “The Craftsman” in my head while reading this. While I liked this book I just want readers to be aware that while it is suspenseful , it wasn’t what I was hoping it would be and maybe if I weren’t in my own head I would have given it a higher rating. Again, I really liked this book but it is different then the feeling I got from her previous book. DO NOT let that stop you from buying this one though, Sharon Bolton is truly gifted and I can’t wait to read her next!
