Review

“This perfectly pitched debut offers sharp insights into the grievances that accumulate over a long relationship, and the lengths to which a woman will go when her world collapses” SUNDAY TIMES

"Sharp, witty, dark as hell and totally engrossing... A worthy rival to Gone Girl in its psychological complexity and accomplishment" DAILY MAIL

"This will be the book everyone will be talking about by the end of summer, it will be the number one choice for book clubs and well-thumbed copies will be passed between friends and work colleagues with glowing recommendation... The term "must-read" is often bandied around and not always deservedly. The Silent Wife justifies the plaudit without question" SUNDAY EXPRESS

"The slow, murderous disintegration of a marriage is all too believable in A.S.A. Harrison's first - and final - novel... As the novel advances into treacherous territory, Harrison's elegant, incisive prose gets dirtier, more dangerous" OBSERVER

"It is inevitably being compared with last year's mega-hit, Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl... The Silent Wife is psychologically more interesting" THE TIMES

"The Silent Wife is one of those books you hate to put down. Harrison writes well with a light touch, but her touch is devastating nonetheless... Profoundly disquieting" GUARDIAN.CO.UK, US Summer Reads pick

"After Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl, novels about toxic marriages are suddenly in vogue. The Silent Wife is the classiest of the bunch... A smart psychological chiller" MAIL ON SUNDAY

"A hit... and you can see why" THE SUN

"A sizzling debut and a chilling psychological thriller - 9/10" PRESS ASSOCIATION

"Beautifully written and superbly paced, not to mention full of ingenious twists. Fans of Gone Girl will love it" SUNDAY MIRROR

"Well plotted, fast-paced and hugely addictive" STYLIST

"Sharp, psychological and intricate, if you've ever wondered just how far you'd go if you had nothing left to lose, this will make you do a double-take" HARPER'S BIZARRE ONLINE

"SUPERB... As a novel about the dark side of marriage and relationships, it's better than Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl. A must read" Sophie Hannah, SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author of KIND OF CRUEL

"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, SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author of BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP

"[A] deliciously wicked pleasure... A very clever, very funny comedy of manners spliced with a domestic thriller" Kate Atkinson, SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author of LIFE AFTER LIFE and CASE HISTORIES

"The characterization is exceptionally well done, the writing stylish and mature... this is a very accomplished psychological thriller" S.J. Bolton

"A terrific debut novel" Val McDermid, SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author of WIRE IN THE BLOOD

"This is an utterly compelling story, gorgeously written and with so many shocks and surprises... I raced through it. My highest recommendation" Tess Gerritsen, SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author of KEEPING THE DEAD

"[A] heart-thumping tale of deception" WOMAN & HOME

"This unsettling story of two people heading for catastrophe is impossible to put down... Will appeal to anyone hooked by Gone Girl" PRIMA

"If you enjoyed Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl, you'll love this unsettling psychological thriller" SUN ON SUNDAY, FABULOUS MAGAZINE

"A brilliant tale of misreadings and desperate measures" SAINSBURY'S MAGAZINE

"The best psychological thriller we've read this year... You'll be thinking about it for months to come" COSMOPOLITAN.CO.UK"

"So poised, so fully composed… If The Silent Wife is not quite so high concept as Gone Girl, it is more precise, plausible and unnerving and just as compelling… Don’t miss this one." London Evening Standard"

Book Description

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Nicole Kidman. Fans of The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl will love The Silent Wife.
