Ten years ago he killed my son. Today I married him.

Ten years ago my darling son Jesse was murdered and our perfect family was destroyed. My strong, handsome boy, so full of life, became a memory, a photo I carried with me everywhere.

But today I’m finally close to finding happiness again. My ash-blonde hair has been curled into ringlets. Carefully placed white flowers frame my delicate features. The small, drab chapel has been prettied up with white satin, and there are tiny red hearts scattered on the small table where I will soon sign the register with my new husband.

The man who killed my son.

My friends and family can’t understand it. My neighbours whisper in the street whenever I walk past. How can I love a man like Tom?

They don’t really know me at all…

The most unputdownable psychological thriller you’ll read this year from the bestselling author K.L. Slater. If you love The Wife Between Us or Gone Girl, you’ll be totally hooked on The Marriage.

What everyone’s saying about The Marriage:

Pulled me in from the very start and did not let go until the final page. Admittedly, I would read a shopping list if it was penned by K.L. Slater, and this latest book exceeded even my highest expectations. Brilliant.’ Goodreads reviewer, FIVE STARS

I stayed up almost all night reading this book – an absolute page turner… I will definitely be reading more by this author.’ The Written Blurred, FIVE STARS

‘The Thriller of the Year! K.L. Slater has written a rollercoaster, cold, cunning, calculating, and downright brilliant piece with characters that hop off the page and keep you on your toes… This is one you don’t want to pass up. Trust me!’ The Secret Book Sleuth, FIVE STARS

Just when I thought I'd hit "the twist" another one jumped right up and shocked the hell out of me! I've always been a big K.L. Slater fan but she's outshone herself this time with this thrilling and unsettling psychological thriller that just kept on giving
