Manhattan family therapist Grace Sachs is on the verge of publishing her first book, a marriage manual called You Should Have Known, which encourages women to heed their intuition when it comes to picking a life partner. It’s the ultimate irony, then, when the seemingly happily married Grace discovers her oncologist husband is missing — and may have been involved in a horrible crime. If you’re looking for a Gone Girl-worthy twist in Korelitz’s tale of a marriage gone wrong, you won’t find it. Though it’s intriguing to watch Grace piece together the mystery of her mate’s wrongdoing, the plot moves slowly, weighed down by superfluous detail (Grace likes shopping at Eli’s!). Really, she should have known…much sooner. B
