The Silent Wife by ASA Harrison

Synopsis:
When her common law husband gets his mistress pregnant, a woman comes face to face with the choices she has made to keep silent about his infidelities, and as her anger surfaces, so does her desire for revenge.

Review:
The Silent Wife was a slow creep of a thriller. In some ways, it lacked a classic hook, but proved that suspense doesn’t need to be plot-driven. It reminded me a lot of Patricia Highsmith’s non-Ripley books, particularly This Sweet Sickness. I’m not sure I think it’s as gripping as Gone Girl, but I did tear through it and was riveted to every page.
