Newlyweds, Sam Statler and Annie Potter are ready to begin their lives together in a small town in upstate New York. Whilst Annie spends most of her time alone, Sam, her therapist husband, works long hours in his home office, tending to the egos of his mostly female clientele.

We live and read in an age when publishers bill every other novel as "psychological suspense." Most of these are neither psychological nor suspenseful; some tick both boxes without much finesse; and rarely - so rarely! - a writer like Aimee Molloy favors us with a thriller like Goodnight Beautiful. It's cunning, for sure, constructed with house-of-cards precision, and the story surges forward as though powered by outboard motor. But Molloy proves particularly skilled in the elusive arts of character and dialogue. Goodnight Beautiful isn't only the most suspenseful novel you'll read this year; it's likely to be the funniest, too. I wish that every book, in every genre, were as deeply imagined and fully inhabited as this one - AJ Finn, author of Woman in the Window

A remarkable and groundbreaking thriller. Molloy grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go until the final mind-bending, utterly astounding twist - Liv Constantine, author of The Last Mrs. Parrish
Along with a rip-roaring suspense plot, Molloy adds depth with critiques of gender conventions that causes readers to investigate the assumptions they bring to the text.
