Publisher's summary

Brace yourself for the latest gripping thriller from Sarah Richards, the bestselling author behind Audible hits China White and Born Winners. The Worst of You is a twisted tale full of mysteries that only grow more intense with each thrilling reveal, keeping you guessing until the shocking conclusion. Masterfully narrated by Sarah Desjardins (Yellowjackets), this immersive audiobook will have you captivated from start to finish.

In The Worst of You, just-wed architects Timo and Nia flee a murder scene, setting in motion a chain reaction of lies and betrayals that threaten to unravel everything they have built together. Twisted and propulsive, this thriller is told from the alternating perspectives of the couple and those close to them on Williwaw Island, each with their own motive to use the outcome of the murder case to their advantage. When a huge storm sweeps up the coast, trapping everyone on tiny Williwaw Island, it’s a race against time—and the elements — to stop the murderer from striking again.

So much idiosyncrasies

These kind of writing always drives me nuts! The story has awesome potential but for smart characters they get the most idiot reasoning and do the most stupidest things
I don’t go back to these authors even if their books are good.

Good storyline, but slow.

Seemed to take a long time to get into the story. Storyline was good, but it was very slow to build interest. I kept hoping it would get there and didn’t until the last 2 chapters.

Twists & Turns

I found the storyline fully engaging. I thought I has it all figured out many times but realized I was completely wrong. I fully enjoyed.
