Product description


Annie Ward explores a battle-scarred marriage on the brink of disaster in this deft debut. As touching and thought-provoking as it is terrifying, Beautiful Bad will leave readers spellbound. A buzzworthy read.

-- "Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author"

A well-constructed thriller...brilliantly conceived...Would do Patricia Highsmith proud.

-- "Booklist"

Evocative descriptions and strong senses of time and place complement the intricate, intelligent plot, which shocks and chills while thoughtfully examining trauma's toll on people and their relationships.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

Beautiful Bad is beautifully written, beautifully twisty-and beautifully twisted. A dark thriller with real psychological depth.

-- "J. P. Delaney, New York Times bestselling author "

Filled with unexpected twists, Beautiful Bad is a riveting read.

-- "Sarah Pekkanen, New York Times bestselling author"

You won't be able to tear yourself away.

-- "Liv Constantine, author of The Last Time I Saw You"

Recommended for readers who enjoy suspense novels or thrillers, as well as fans of Paula Hawkins, Ruth Ware, and Liane Moriarty.

-- "Library Journal"

Product Description

'Ward writes with the same compelling energy as you get in a blockbuster Netflix series'
Daily Mail

It seemed like such a beautiful marriage...

Maddie and Ian's love story began with a chance encounter at a party, while she was a travel writer visiting her best friend, Jo. Now, almost two decades later, they are married with a beautiful son, Charlie, and living the perfect suburban life in middle America.

But when a camping accident leaves Maddie badly scarred, she begins attending writing therapy, where she gradually reveals her fears about Ian, her concerns for the safety of their young son and the couple's tangled and tumultuous past with Jo.

Following their story across the globe, sixteen years of love and fear, adventure and suspicion culminate in a frantic 911 call summoning the police to the scene of a shocking crime...

'Compelling. Filled with unexpected twists... a riveting read'
Sarah Pekkanen, author of The Wife Between Us
