Join us for a discussion of A.S.A. Harrison's mystery novel The Silent Wife

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.  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.

“It’s this summer’s Gone Girl – I gobbled it down in one sitting.” – Anne Lamott, People Magazine

“This summer's sleeper hit” – The New York Times

“The Silent Wife is a boning knife of a novel, sharp and quick.” – Newsday
  
“You can't blame the publishers of The Silent Wife for hyping it as ‘the new Gone Girl.’ It's not. It just might be better.” – The Huffington Post

“A.S.A Harrison's The Silent Wife is a clean, understated thriller” – NPR.ORG
