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.

    "Really enjoyed this"
    What did you love best about The Silent Wife?

    I loved hearing the story from both sides. Obviously, there is more in-depth offering from the woman's perspective, but it was very interesting getting inside the man's head. Creepy but interesting.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Silent Wife?

    I enjoyed the author's way of setting the reader down into the middle of the MCs' lives. You got a real sense of their chemistry and the tension between them. I also felt like I was acquainted with the female lead. Like she was my neighbor and I'm suddenly privy to her thoughts and background.


    Which character – as performed by Karen White and Donald Corren – was your favorite?

    I liked how Donald Corren portrayed Natasha. He seemed to use just the right amount sass, bitchy, and childish. I could picture her easily.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Jodi's grief over the relationship and her sense of loss were very identifiable. She almost passed through many of the changes as though in a state of shock. I liked how she never truly "freaked out" over anything. She was a refreshing character.

    "The female reader is very annoying."

    Sometimes it sounded like she was a weird computer voice, breaking slightly between words, and an extremely strange way of raising and lowering her tone in ways it does not make sense at all. Distracting. Story was good.

    "Interesting but intellectual"

    Enjoyed the story however the character's prose was at times too academic and felt out of touch with overall story. A bit disappointed that many side stories were eluded to rather than a explicit connection with the main story line told.

    "Boring and slow, uneventful plot line"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story was lacking substance and very boring, it was nothing like what I expected in the description. The characters were shallow and the narration was irritating.

    "found this very boring"

    this book was terribly boring for me. I struggled through it. The readers also change voices for the characters yet read the name off when it's Julie: .... Gerad:.... it's quite bothersome.

    "somewhat predictable, but entertaining"

    I liked this book. Only problem is you know where it's going before it starts. Entertaining throughout.

    Story
    "Boring, boring, boring!"
    What was most disappointing about A. S. A. Harrison’s story?

    Where do I begin? The plot is WEAK. The characters are boring and predictable. This is definitely not a thriller and NOTHING like Gone Girl. I regret wasting a credit on downloading this awful book.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The male narrator did well. No complaints about him. However, the female narrator was terrible. Half the time she sounded like a dang robot and spoke....in....pauses....She sounded tired and bored herself.
