What a twisty, creepy book!  I couldn't stop listening to it.  It was a definite binge listen and would have been a binge read.  It's twisty.  Never knowing who the villain is was part of the fun of this book.  The element of how unintended consequences reverberate through the family as well as the larger community was woven throughout.  The unnamed narrator's fascination with his lovely wife, Millicent, makes their relationship almost enviable.

From the publisher:
A couple's fifteen-year marriage has finally gotten too interesting...

Our love story is simple. I met a gorgeous woman. We fell in love. We had kids. We moved to the suburbs. We told each other our biggest dreams, and our darkest secrets. And then we got bored.

We look like a normal couple. We're your neighbors, the parents of your kid's friend, the acquaintances you keep meaning to get dinner with.

We all have secrets to keeping a marriage alive.

Ours just happens to be getting away with murder.
