Publisher's Summary

What would you do if the man of your dreams hides the soul of a killer?

Jim Beckett was everything she'd ever dreamed of...But two years after Tess married the decorated cop and bore his child, she helped put him behind bars for savagely murdering ten women. Even locked up in a maximum security prison, he vowed he would come after her and make her pay. Now the cunning killer has escaped - and the most dangerous game of all begins....

After a lifetime of fear, Tess will do something she's never done before. She's going to learn to protect her daughter and fight back, with the help of a burned-out ex-marine. As the largest manhunt four states have ever seen mobilizes to catch Beckett, the clock winds down to the terrifying reunion between husband and wife. And Tess knows that this time, her only choices are to kill - or be killed.

Fast Paced Thriller

This thriller has a little bit of everything - love, kidnapping, murder.... It was a great book, though a bit on the predictable side.

So many years to wait for the audible

All of Lisa Gardner fans have waited a long time for The Perfect Husband to have it's own audible. Lisa hit a home run on an old home run book.

Great Thrilling Story

I like Lisa Gardener and most of her books. I read the reviews on this book and decided I would have to try it. A good decision. Once I started listening I couldn’t stop. If you like a thriller with some true feeling this is it.

Powerful

I was in suspense from the 3rd or 4th chapter on. The only caveat was how useless the FBI and the police appeared. Sociopaths are drawn to the week and helpless. May the abused seek shelter and learn to fight and learn that they do deserve more.

Excellent read

Loved this edge of your seat suspense thriller. The narrator has perfect command of the nuances of each character and keeps you enthralled in the story. The characters are well developed and relatable.
An overall great read which won't disappoint.
