Jess, Priyanka and Stephanie are all happily married to men they think they know inside out.
Then each woman receives a letter accusing her husband of involvement in a sexual assault that took place 20 years ago.
Who do they believe, what should they do and can they come together as their lives are upended?
A compelling, beautifully crafted thriller about consent, friendship and prejudice which asks - would you sacrifice your family life in support of another woman?
"The most riveting and unflinching he said/she said novel to date, Good Husbands follows three women whose lives are set on a collision course upon the arrival of an unsettling letter about each of their husbands. Absolutely staggering, insanely gripping, and wholly unputdownable, this riveting, unsettling suspense will leave you gasping for air and for answers and will have you turning the pages until the last, final, astonishing twist. With her hypnotic, dazzling prose and captivating characters, Cate Ray is a masterful storyteller at the height of her powers.' - May Cobb, author of The Hunting Wives
'In an emotional and powerfully evocative story, three women grapple with a discovery that could shatter their lives.' - Liv Constantine, author of The Last Mrs Parrish
'Multilayered, unflinchingly honest, and teeming with nerve-shattering suspense, Good Husbands by Cate Ray had me flying through the pages. Spellbound, I walked the heartbreaking journey right along with the women of Good Husbands - felt their shock, fear and uncertainty as they grappled to do the right thing ... Ray has created a much-needed space for complex conversations surrounding consent and whether we really know the people we love. An absolute triumph.' - Heather Gudenkauf, author of The Overnight Guest
'A searing, compelling and beautifully written story that explores huge themes with honesty and sensitivity. Full of insight and subtle detailing, it will repay multiple rereadings.' - C. J. Cooper, author of The Book Club
“A thought provoking and intelligent story about friendship, consent and how well we truly know those closest to us. I rooted for the three main characters as they each found their own way of discovering the truth and I had a lump in my throat as I turned the final page. I loved it.” Claire Douglas"
