"A.S.A. Harrison knocks it out of the park with her first novel "The Silent Wife." With a spare, elegant, and deft hand, she paints two dueling psychological portraits of longtime live-in lovers who become putative killer and hapless victim in a tale that no one is likely to forget any time soon. I couldn't put this book down."--Elizabeth George, "New York"" Times "bestselling author of "Believing the Lie"
"What a deliciously wicked pleasure "The Silent Wife" was to read. I love books where I can't guess the outcome although I was rooting for Jodi all the way. A very clever, very funny comedy of manners spliced with a domestic thriller."--Kate Atkinson, "New York"" Times "bestselling author of "Life After Life "and "Case Histories"
"Beautifully written and deeply unsettling, this darkly funny examination of what happens when you've got nothing left to lose is also brilliantly addictive. It left me almost breathless as I raced towards the devastating finale."--S. J. Watson, "New York Times "bestselling author of "Before I Go to Sleep"
"SUPERB... As a novel about the dark side of marriage and relationships, it's better than Gillian Flynn's "Gone Girl." A must read for anyone who is occasionally ruthless, reckless or psychologically weird - and anyone who loves clever books with depth and heart."--Sophie Hannah, author of "The Other Woman's House"
"Like a tiny crack in the windshield of destiny, "The Silent Wife" examines the ultimate shattering of a perfectly civilized marriage. Intense, hypnotic, and thoroughly absorbing, Harrison challenges her characters to venture beyond their comfort zones, into a world where anything is possible, even murder."--Elizabeth Brundage, author of "A Stranger Like You "and "The Doctor's Wife"
"A smart, nuanced portrait of a dying marriage...Harrison breathes life into Adlerian psychology, and weaves theory into a heart-pounding thriller that will keep you up at night."--"PW "(starred review)show more
