The Silent Wife

The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison moves like a shark through the water—sleek and sinister as it details the functionally dysfunctional relationship of a man and woman. Each chapter is told from the two protagonists’ alternating perspectives, and both are at turns despicable and sympathetic. A terrifically paced portrait of the terrible things people are capable of when love, and the betrayal of that love, is involved. Harrison handles the psychological maneuvers, motives, and machinations of her twin villains with a superbly deft touch that feels absolutely authentic while still being supremely shocking. The more I read, the harder it was to put down, even for a minute.
