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.

    "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 .

    "Too long and performance is rough"

    If you're a very analytical type this book will be great for you but for me it was way too rambly and long with details that didn't assist the story line.

    The performance is smooth but words and phrases are drawn out and breathy, it's almost done in a way that makes it seem like the female is trying to soothing but it comes off annoying and took too long to get through.

    Reader novice. Looking for substance delivered with entertainment. Love psychological thrillers and dramas, but always love the classics!

    "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.

    Story
    "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.
