Mysteries & Thrillers Winner: The Wife Between Us

Every single person I turned on to this complex domestic thriller—and there were a lot—has called it one of their favorite books of the year. With its shifting POVs and time frames, along with heart-stopping intensity, The Wife Between Us has you questioning everything you think you know about the lives of one woman, her Master-of-the-Universe ex-husband, and her replacement (his new fiancée). Julia Whelan’s wholly engaging way of navigating this mind-play makes you want it to simultaneously linger on this listen, staying wrapped in its delicious suspense, and race to end towards its oh-so-satisfying conclusion. —Abby, Audible Editor
