“The Silent Wife” by A.S.A. Harrison
I listened to the audio version of this book.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. When I read the summary, it sounded somewhat like “Gone Girl” by Gillian Flynn. However, it was not. The writer’s style hooked me into the story from the beginning. I thought that the ending could have been better. I googled the author, because I wanted to read her other books, if there were any. I was sad to find out that she had passed away 😦
Summary from Goodreads:
Jodi and Todd are at a bad place in their marriage. Much is at stake, including the affluent life they lead in their beautiful waterfront condo in Chicago, as she, the killer, and he, the victim,rush haplessly toward the main event. He is a committed cheater; she lives and breathes denial. He exists in dual worlds; she likes to settle scores. He plays for keeps; she has nothing left to lose. Told in alternating voices,The Silent Wife is about a marriage in the throes of dissolution, a couple headed for catastrophe, concessions that cant be made, and promises that wont be kept. Expertly plotted,this debut novel ensnares the listener from page one and never lets go.
