Silent WifeA psychological thriller that was just declared “Better Than Gone Girl” by the Cleveland Plain Dealer‘s insightful reviewer Laura DeMarco, The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison, (Penguin Trade Pbk original) is showing heavy holds on modest ordering in libraries.

Like the surprise hit it’s compared to, The Silent Wife is the story of a marriage gone wrong, but says DeMarco, in this case, “both members of the couple are a lot more human, more fully fleshed — albeit badly damaged — individuals … Like Gone Girl, The Silent Wife is told in alternating chapters from ‘Him’ and ‘Her.’ But while Flynn’s book almost redefined ‘unreliable narrator,’ Harrison’s narrators come across as more personally deluded than manipulative.”

The Silent Wife is an original trade paperback, which makes it not only easier to buy additional copies but also an immediate book club candidate.
