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)
The Silent Wife attracted much political publicity, but its author died a few weeks ago... The hype was largely justified. 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)
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)
Beautifully written and superbly paced, not to mention full of ingenious twists. Fans of Gone Girl will love it (SUNDAY MIRROR)
SUPERB... As a novel about the dark side of marriage and relationships, it's better than Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl (SOPHIE HANNAH)
This summer's blockbuster novel (DAILY TELEGRAPH)
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 BAZAAR ONLINE)
Utterly believable, complex, and compelling (JOJO MOYES)
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)
A deliciously wicked pleasure... A very clever, very funny comedy of manners spliced with a domestic thriller (KATE ATKINSON)
A terrific debut novel (VAL MCDERMID)
This is an utterly compelling story, gorgeously written and with so many shocks and surprises... I raced through it. My highest recommendation (TESS GERRITSEN)
The characterization is exceptionally well done, the writing stylish and mature... this is a very accomplished psychological thriller (S.J. BOLTON)
Reminiscent of Gone Girl in that it's written in the alternating voices of the couple, it's every bit as addictive. You'll be thinking about it for months to come (www.cosmopolitan.co.uk)
If you enjoyed Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl, you'll love this unsettling psychological thriller (SUN ON SUNDAY)
A gripping psychological thriller (DAILY EXPRESS)
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.See all Product description

The crime, when it happens, which is late in the story, is quite predictable, as is the twist. The psychological revelation is better and quite unexpected. There's a lot to like in this book, so why only three stars? For me the writer got bogged down with a lot of detail in the central part of her story. When I find myself skimming through a hundred or more pages, this isn't a book I can recommend with any enthusiasm.
I found this story utterly a compulsive read. I just was glued to it from the very first page to the last. The story is easy to read and so hard to put down. The Silent Wife is a disturbing sad and brillant psychological thriller. The story graually builds up layer by layer. I highly recommend reading The Silent Wife.
Jodie Brett has been living with Todd Gilbert for twenty years. Jodie likes nothing more than to spoil Todd cooking dinners. Faithfully Jodie trust Todd fully and she does not think any thing of letting Todd having his own freedom letting him be own his own man doing his own thing. What Jodie is unaware of is Todd is seeing a younger girl. so many more shocks and surprises are along the way.
I would of loved to of read more from this author but it so very sad that A. S. A Harrison was at work on a new psychological thriller when she very sadly died.
