The book will be released on Tuesday, July 25 and is described as the following:

In THE MARRIAGE PACT, after receiving an enticing wedding gift, newlyweds Alice and Jake decide to join an exclusive and mysterious group known only as The Pact. The goal of The Pact seems simple: to keep marriages happy and intact. However, the young lovers are about to discover that for adherents to The Pact, membership, like marriage, is for life. For Jake and Alice, the marriage of their dreams is about to become their worst nightmare. Alice and Jake are initially seduced by the glamorous parties, the sense of community, their widening social circle of like-minded couples. And then one of them breaks the rules. The young lovers are about to discover that for adherents to The Pact, membership, like marriage, is for life. And The Pact will go to any lengths to enforce that rule. For Jake and Alice, the marriage of their dreams is about to become their worst nightmare.

Kira Goldberg from 20th Century FOX will oversee.

Richmond is a New York Times bestselling author of novels like the 2014 political thriller Golden State, the international bestseller The Year of the Fog and No One You Know, a mystery that combines an unsolved murder with centuries-old mathematical conjecture. She’s also got two story collections out. The Marriage Pact will be translated in 27 languages.
