Jodi and Todd have been together for twenty years when over the space of a few months he leaves her for another woman and, as we learn on page two of The Silent Wife, she proceeds to turn into a killer.
Todd is an entrepreneur who gentrifies old buildings, Jodi is a psychologist and they have a waterfront condo in Chicago. The story is told in alternating chapters of Him and Her, and my sympathies veered from one character to the other, finally settling reluctantly between them both. A well-told story.
My rating: 4 stars
