Publisher's Summary

A chilling psychological thriller about a marriage, a way of life, and how far one woman will go to keep what is rightfully hers....

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 decides to play 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 can’t be made, and promises that won’t be kept. Expertly plotted and reminiscent of Gone Girl and These Things Hidden, The Silent Wife ensnares the listener from its opening lines and never lets go.

    Story
    "Not a Thriller, No Suspense, Don't expect Mystery"
    Would you try another book from A. S. A. Harrison and/or Karen White and Donald Corren ?

    This author's idea of a story and my idea of a story are definitely two different things and I would not venture to read or listen to another of her stories. Unfortunately, the author has also passed away and will not have the opportunity to write more stories.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    My last two books including this one have been duds. I really want to listen/read something fun, light, and uplifting.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Karen White and Donald Corren ’s performances?

    It's always hard to tell if the narrator didn't meet the tone of the author or if the author/publication team failed to select the right narrator. These narrators in my opinion just didn't fit. The flow seemed staccato in nature and just difficult to get through.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    When the main character Jodi decided to smoke a cigarette, something she hadn't done in over 20 years (if memory serves me correctly) all of sudden in my mind I saw her as Sharon Stone and that made me smile.


    Any additional comments?

    If your idea of suspense/thriller involves uncovering layers of the human psyche, exploring your childhood, and it relevance to adult choice then this might be for you. Personally, if I had wanted that experience, then I'd rather take a class or read a textbook. I just didn't like it.

    "This book is terrible"

    This book is terrible. It is long and drawn out and the characters are unlikeable and shallow. There was nothing redeeming about this book. Don't bother.

    "Never took off..."

    This book seemed to drag on. I felt like I was always waiting for the climax of the book. I'm shocked this book will be made in to a movie, doesn't seem like there will be enough content for that.

    "okay"

    Characters were good, but wouldn't categorize this as a thriller/suspense, it's more of a drama. There were no "holding your breath" moments. I kept expecting to find a new tidbit, some new piece of info that would give be that a-ha! moment. It never came. NOTHING like Girl on the Train or Gone Girl, which it was compared to.

    "Female narrator annoyingly distracting..."

    This was an interesting story but the female narrator was odd and distracted from the story. The way she read was choppy and disjointed. Just altogether odd.

    "Painful to listen to"

    There were way too many details that seemed to have nothing to do with the story line, especially when It was talking about her brothers. I liked the male narrator. I Would not listen to this female narrator again .
