The Silent Wife

16 Jul

A.S.A. Harrison has written a subtle, stealthy novel, taking us inside the head of a calm rational psychotherapist, as she decides to kill her philandering husband. The novel slowly unfolds, in the same way that the mysteries inside Jodi’s mind become revealed to us and her. The pace is unhurried, the writing is confident, and the quiet normalcy of both the story and Jodi’s thinking combine to make this an interesting take on the mind of a murderer.  Not a thriller, and not fast-paced, but definitely worth reading.
