A Publishers Weekly Most Anticipated Book for 2020
An exhilarating new novel from a global superstar--a sexy, over-the-top psychological thriller that tells the story of the scorned wife of a billionaire and her delicious plot to get her revenge and bring him to his knees.
Faye has loved Jack since they were students at business school. Jack, the perpetual golden boy, grew up wealthy, unlike Faye, who has worked hard to bury a dark past. When Jack needs help launching a new company, Faye leaves school to support him, waitressing by day and working as his strategist by night. With the business soaring, Faye and Jack have a baby, and Faye finds herself at home, caring for their daughter, wealthier than she ever imagined, but more and more removed from the excitement of the business world. And none of the perks of wealth make up for the fact that Jack has begun to treat her coldly, undermining her intelligence and forgetting all she sacrificed for his success. When Faye discovers that he's having an affair, the polished façade of their life cracks wide open. Faye is alone, emotionally shattered, and financially devastated--but hell hath no fury like a woman with a violent past bent on vengeance. Jack is about to get exactly what he deserves--and so much more. In this splashy, electrifying story of sex, betrayal, and secrets, a woman's revenge is a brutal but beautiful thing.
"The Golden Cage is a twisting, brutal tale of betrayal and revenge. Lackberg paints a vivid portrait of a dark and complicated anti-heroine who is both the abused and abuser, victim and victimizer. A chilling, timely read sure to thrill her international legion of fans!”
— Lisa Unger, New York Times best-selling author of The Stranger Inside
"A sexy, sensational novel with intoxicating vengeance and an unexpected tenderness—The Golden Cage is tensely and skillfully drawn."
— Karin Slaughter
"It's about time that Americans get to savor the delicious twists and bad behavior that mark a Camilla Läckberg thriller. The Golden Cage is a wonderful, take-no-prisoners mashup of Gone Girl, Billions, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo."
—Chris Bohjalian, best-selling author of The Flight Attendant and The Red Lotus
“Camilla Lackberg is a master of psychological suspense: she grabbed me by the throat with this sharply written, wildly entertaining tale of wealth, power and revenge and kept me up straight through the night. The Golden Cage may be my first exposure to Europe's "Queen of Crime" but it certainly won't be my last. I'm a Läckberg fan for life.”
— Cristina Alger, New York Times bestselling author of Girls Like Us
