"I gobbled it down in one sitting." – Anne Lamott, People

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 reader from page one and does not let go.


  • Don’t waste your timr

    By cheerio4ever
    Boring and pointless. Not even worth the 1.99$ I paid for it.
  • How did I make it till the end.

    By clickchicky
    Somehow I read the whole book. I finished it in a day, mainly because I wanted to get it over. It just really seemed pointless! Comparing it to Gone Girl, was an embarrassment to Gone girl. I tend to share my read books with friends, but this one is going in the free donation box!
  • Long and boring

    By Ebd09
    This book felt soooo long and boring, I had to really push myself to even continue reading until the end. There were some good entertaining parts but overall very blah. I have read many other similar style books that I would recommend instead
  • Where is the ending?

    By Cmtulsa
    What the hell? Never wraps up the cliffhangers!
  • Glad I read it

    By kerpoi
    It wasn’t necessarily a page turner, but I would say that I was entertained throughout. Ending was a little anticlimactic
  • Terrible.

    I kept reading this book in hopes it would get better ..... it didn’t. To compare this to “Gone Girl” is just wrong. It fell horribly flat. No work up in suspense whatsoever. Too much detail, not enough dialogue.
  • Awful

    By MaeMandy
    Don’t buy this book, it’s a waste of money. One of the worst books I’ve ever read. Seriously...go to amazon and read more reviews before you pay for this.
  • The Silent Wife

    By Bacswifey
    Short, felt unfinished and ended abruptly. Excellent character development by author. Left me wanting more.
  • So boring!!!!

    By Nanny from Flushing
    Literally had to skip ahead some parts to get past all of the babbling and excessive backstories that really had nothing to do with the current story. Awful!!!
  • Started great, ended wack

    By Sdfrdeghfrjed
    The story was short. It was interesting at first, then it gets a little boring and ends with nothing. You don’t get to know much about the characters nor the secrets. A lot of unanswered questions.
