LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE meets GET OUT and THE STEPFORD WIVES in the spectacular new novel from the New York Times bestselling author Chandler Baker.

How far will a woman go to get a little more help from her husband?

'Chandler Baker is the queen of the feminist thriller' SALLY HEPWORTH
'Incredible . . . it made me angry in the best possible way' JESSICA MOOR
'The Husbands may just save your marriage' CELIA WALDEN

Recently, Nora has started to feel that 'having it all' comes with a price, one her husband doesn't seem to be paying quite so heavily. She loves Hayden, but why is it that, however hard men work, their wives always seem to work that little bit harder?

When their house-hunting takes them to an affluent suburban neighbourhood, Nora's eyes are opened to a new world. Here, the wives don't make all the sacrifices. Here, the husbands can remember the kids' schedules, and iron and notice when the house needs dusting.

But when she becomes involved in a wrongful death case involving one of the local residents, Nora begins to suspect that there's a dark secret at the heart of this perfect world.

One which might just be worth killing for . . .

Review quote

Chandler Baker, queen of the feminist thriller, has delivered once again! The Husbands is a poignant exploration of what it would take for women to have it all ... and it's as sobering as you might imagine. My head is still spinning. I can already hear the book club discussions! -- Sally Hepworth Every weary wife needs to read this book. You'll belly laugh in recognition, sob in recognition - but ultimately, The Husbands may just save your marriage -- Celia Walden Incredible. . . The Husbands expresses a truth that needed to be articulated, that will resonate with every woman I know. It made me angry in the best way. -- Jessica Moor Every once in a while there's a book that stays with you - whether the subject resonates, makes you think or quite simply shocks. The Husbands does all that, and more. * Woman & Home * Soon to become a film, this clever novel is well worth a read and perfect for book clubs * Belfast Telegraph * An utterly addictive page-turner * Daily Mail * The deviously dark twists keep the reader hooked until the shocking climax * Candis * This gender-swapping Stepford Wives story is as creepy as it is delicious * Good Housekeeping *
