Canadian Author Passes Away

From the Booking Desk:

I was very sad to read this morning that A.S.A. Harrison, the author of the forthcoming The Silent Wife, has passed away.  While the cause of death has not been mentioned, the Toronto Star has a brief article on A.S.A. Harrison.

The Silent Wife has garnered incredible advance reviews including a starred review in Publisher’s Weekly.  Fellow authors such as Elizabeth George, Kate Atkinson and Sophie Hannah have all supplied glowing blurbs for the novel.

BOLO Books will be running a full review of the novel closer to the US publication date of June 25.  Until then, here is the cover of the novel and the jacket copy:

The Silent Wife

A.S.A. Harrison – The Silent Wife (Penguin Books, Paperback, $16.00, 6/25/2013)

Jacket Copy:

A chilling psychological thriller about a marriage, a way of life, and how far one woman will go to keep what is rightfully hers.

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.
