“That final revelation from Harrison, who, regrettably, died before she could see her debut novel published, inflicts the stealth damage of an icepick to the carotid artery.”Sarah Weinman, New Republic

“If you’re suffering from Gone Girl withdrawal, here’s your fix.”Real Simple

“The secret of this novel’s spell lies not in ingenious twists but in its meticulous plausibility. You probably know—and may even be—someone very much like Todd or Jodi, which makes their relentless tick-tock toward doom all the more riveting.”Laura Miller, Salon

"A.S.A. Harrison knocks it out of the park with her first novel The Silent Wife. With a spare, elegant, and deft hand, she paints two dueling psychological portraits of longtime live-in lovers who become putative killer and hapless victim in a tale that no one is likely to forget any time soon. I couldn't put this book down."Elizabeth George, New York Times bestselling author of Believing the Lie
