Publisher's summary

The Golden Couple is the next electrifying audiobook from Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, the number one New York Times best-selling author duo behind You Are Not Alone, An Anonymous Girl, and The Wife Between Us.

If Avery Chambers can’t fix you in 10 sessions, she won’t take you on as a client. Her successes are phenomenal—she helps people overcome everything from domineering parents to assault—and almost absorbs the emptiness she sometimes feels since her husband’s death.

Marissa and Mathew Bishop seem like the golden couple—until Marissa cheats. She wants to repair things, both because she loves her husband and for the sake of their eight-year-old son. After a friend forwards an article about Avery, Marissa takes a chance on this maverick therapist, who lost her license due to controversial methods.

When the Bishops glide through Avery’s door and Marissa reveals her infidelity, all three are set on a collision course. Because the biggest secrets in the room are still hidden, and it’s no longer simply a marriage that’s in danger.

A Macmillan Audio production from St. Martin's Press

"My favorite kind of thriller: a guessing game filled with characters you care about and twists you don't see coming. The Golden Couple takes a deep dive into a marriage, where what you see on the surface is not necessarily the truth, and the results are mesmerizing. Add to this a therapist who doesn't play by the rules and you have an utterly compelling, spellbinding read." (Lisa Jewell, author of Then She Was Gone and Invisible Girl)

"Narrators Marin Ireland and Karissa Vacker dazzle as they deliver this twisted domestic thriller." (AudioFile)

Featured Article: Best of the Year—The 15 Best Mysteries and Thrillers of 2022

This year was an amazingly fruitful one for mysteries and thrillers. As we tried to narrow this list down, a popular refrain among editors was: "Don’t forget this, don’t forget that, and what about this?" Some of us liked when the twists and turns began within the first few minutes, while others were happy to go on the rocky, thrilling rides the genre provides with a little guessing along the way. But we’re sure about one thing—this list is simply the best.

Editor's Pick

Looks can be deceiving
There are few authors for whom I will listen to everything they write, and Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen are on my short list. I rediscovered my love of listening with their Audible Original The Getaway in 2020, and devoured their twisty domestic thriller, The Golden Couple, in three days. Marissa and Matthew seem like the perfect couple, until a secret infidelity forces them to seek help to repair their marriage. Narrator Marin Ireland expertly embodies Avery, a well-known therapist recently suspended for her unconventional methods, while Karissa Vacker’s layered portrayal of Marissa kept me guessing. This electrifying listen had me on the edge of my seat until the final twist was revealed. —Margaret H., Audible Editor
