The Silent Wife was published in June 2013 and has been compared to Gone Girl and These Things Happen. I am looking forward to reading this thriller story of a marriage that is headed for tragedy. This is a debut novel for A. S. A. Harrison and sadly, she passed away only weeks before its publication, of cancer at age 65. Prior to publication, The Silent Wife received a lot of attention and very positive early reviews. A. S. A. Harrison was a Canadian writer and was married to visual artist John Massey.
