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 page one and never lets go.

It was almost as good as Gone Girl, not as much character development. But good enough to wean you off that high you need after Gone Girl.
I'm sure it's a great book..
I'm only a few chapters in but the narrator reads as if she's constantly sighing. The rise and fall of her voice is perfect for an audiobook but I find myself getting easily distracted because her voice drags on as if she's tired. The voice of the person reading the book is always a deciding factor.. I'm going to have a hard time finishing this :(
Loved this book!
Well written, well read and the plot is great with no holes. This is going to be one of my favorites.
