Friendship can cover a myriad of sins, right? Well, almost. But when these three college friends find themselves 20 years down the road, living distinctly different lives, things won’t necessarily turn out the way you’d expect; especially when one of them turns up murdered and the question of who might have killed her starts to sour all their relationships. This sizzling tale will singe your thoughts as well as your feelings. And if you’re not careful, you may start giving your most trustworthy friends a few sideways glances – just in case. This ones a real murderous romp that will keep you going long into the night.


— Linda Bond


A suspenseful, absorbing novel that examines the complexities of friendship, It’s Always the Husband by Michele Campbell will keep listeners guessing right up to its shocking conclusion.

“A riveting tale of love, hate, and murder.”—Us Weekly

“A page-turning whodunit that will speak to anyone who’s ever had a frenemy.”—Ruth Ware, bestselling author of The Woman in Cabin Ten

“Fans of Gillian Flynn, meet your next obsession.”—BuzzFeed

Meet Kate, Aubrey, and Jenny.

They first met as college roommates and soon became inseparable, despite their many differences. Kate was beautiful, wild, wealthy, and damaged. Aubrey came from the wrong side of the tracks, and wanted more than anything to distance herself from her past. Jenny was brilliant, ambitious, and determined to win big at all costs. As an unlikely alliance formed, Kate, Aubrey, and Jenny swore they would always be friends.

Twenty years later, the three women—all married, and deemed successful by any measure—are together again. But one of them is standing at the edge of a bridge…and someone is urging her to jump. How did it come to this? Who is to blame? Is it true that it’s always the husband who commits the worst crimes against his wife—or is someone else behind a sinister plot to tear these three women apart?

Praise For…

"Narrator January LaVoy's considerable talents are a major factor in transitioning this novel successfully from print to audio...As the plot shifts between college days and the present, LaVoy's clarity and pacing keep the action moving and the shifting settings clear while seamlessly folding new actors into the mix." -AudioFile

"LaVoy’s narration is well suited to this fast-paced, twisted thriller. She assigns spot-on voices and attitudes to each character; listeners instantly recognize intelligent and grounded Jenny, meek and desperate Aubrey, and rich and wild Kate. LaVoy is also able to mature the voices so the girls age realistically as the story and timeline progress. The audio begins and ends with an intense and memorable soundtrack that impeccably fits the shocking ending. This is Gossip Girl meets Gone Girl and is poised to be one of 2017’s talked-about thrillers." -Booklist
