THE MARRIAGE PACT – the new psychological thriller by Michelle Richmond


“The Marriage Pact is a tense, twisting, quirky novel of growing dread—and a love story with a richly imagined relationship between a wife and husband. Michelle Richmond looks with a gimlet eye at our therapy-obsessed culture and wonders if the experts who claim to have all the cures might themselves need therapy. Gripping, thought-provoking, and irresistible.”
–Dean Koontz, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Corner

“Michelle Richmond is, simply put, a great storyteller. And The Marriage Pact, without gimmick or tricks, is a twisting, suspenseful, keep-you-up-all-night thriller. But it’s more than, too. It’s a deep, insightful, nearly voyeuristic view into the modern marriage—what brings us together, what keeps us together, what tears us apart. A smart, engrossing, scary read!”
—Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of The Red Hunter

A brilliant premise for a novel of psychological suspense, tautly plotted and deftly written. The Marriage Pact shows in gripping detail just what could go wrong when we try too hard to protect the love we cherish most.”
–JP Delaney, New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Before

Riveting psychological suspense! First you meet the lovely couple, then you agree a little marital support couldn’t hurt and then… Beware. This book will keep you all night, while making you second guess everything you know, and everyone you’ve ever loved.”

–Lisa Gardner, New York Times bestselling author of Find Her
