Ο αστυνόμος Στίβεν Μόραν περίμενε καιρό να του δοθεί η ευκαιρία να περάσει το κατώφλι του Τμήματος Ανθρωποκτονιών του Δουβλίνου και η επιθυμία του γίνεται πραγματικότητα όταν ένα πρωί η δεκαεξάχρονη Χόλι Μακέι τού φέρνει αυτή τη φωτογραφία. Τη βρήκε αναρτημένη στον Τόπο των Μυστικών, έναν πίνακα όπου τα κορίτσια του ιδιωτικού σχολείου Σεντ Κίλντα μπορούν να αναρτήσουν ανώνυμα τα μυστικά τους. Συνήθως πρόκειται για κουτσομπολιά και κακεντρεχή σχόλια, αλλά σήμερα κάποιος τον χρησιμοποίησε για να πυροδοτήσει εκ νέου την έρευνα για τη δολοφονία του όμορφου και δημοφιλούς Κρις Χάρπερ. Ο Στίβεν θα ενώσει τις δυνάμεις του με τη σκληροτράχηλη αστυνόμο Αντουανέτ Κόνγουεϊ για να βρει τη λύση. Όλα τα στοιχεία οδηγούν τους δύο ντετέκτιβ στην κλίκα της Χόλι και στην κλίκα των αντίζηλών τους καθώς και σε έναν περίπλοκο ιστό σχέσεων και μυστικών που δένουν όλα αυτά τα κορίτσια με τον νεκρό Κρις Χάρπερ. Σε κάθε τους βήμα η πίεση αυξάνεται. Ο κόσμος των έφηβων αυτών κοριτσιών θα αποδειχθεί πολύ πιο επικίνδυνος απ’ ό,τι είχαν ποτέ φανταστεί οι δύο αστυνομικοί…

In Broken Harbour, a ghost estate outside Dublin - half-built, half-inhabited, half-abandoned - two children and their father are dead. The mother is on her way to intensive care. Scorcher Kennedy is given the case because he is the Murder squad's star detective. At first he and his rookie partner, Richie, think this is a simple one: Pat Spain was a casualty of the recession, so he killed his children, tried to kill his wife Jenny, and finished off with himself. But there are too many inexplicable details and the evidence is pointing in two directions at once. Scorcher's personal life is tugging for his attention. Seeing the case on the news has sent his sister Dina off the rails again, and she's resurrecting something that Scorcher thought he had tightly under control: what happened to their family, one summer at Broken Harbour, back when they were children. The neat compartments of his life are breaking down, and the sudden tangle of work and family is putting both at risk . . .

Ο γάµος της Τζόντι και του Τοντ βρίσκεται σε κρίσιµη στιγµή. Πολλά διακυβεύονται, συµπεριλαµβανοµένης της άνετης ζωής τους στο πανέµορφο διαµέρισµα στο Σικάγο δίπλα στο νερό, καθώς εκείνη και εκείνος προχωρούν µε ιλιγγιώδη ταχύτητα προς το κεντρικό γεγονός. Εκείνος ζει διπλή ζωή. Εκείνη ζει και αναπνέει την άρνηση. Εκείνος αποφασίζει να φύγει. Εκείνη δεν έχει τίποτα πια να χάσει.Μέσα από την εναλλαγή των φωνών, η Σιωπηλή σύζυγος µιλάει για έναν γάµο που διαλύεται, για ένα ζευγάρι που οδεύει προς την καταστροφή, για παραχωρήσεις που είναι αδύνατον να γίνουν, για υποσχέσεις που δεν πρόκειται να εκπληρωθούν... «Με την κοµψή και επιδέξια πένα της σκιαγραφεί τα αντιµαχόµενα ψυχολογικά πορτρέτα δύο εραστών που µετατρέπονται σε υποτιθέµενο δολοφόνο και άτυχο θύµα, σε µια ιστορία που κανείς δεν πρόκειται να ξεχάσει σύντοµα. Δεν µπορούσα να αφήσω το βιβλίο από τα χέρια µου». Elizabeth George «Το ανατριχιαστικό πορτρέτο µιας σχέσης που πήγε τροµερά λάθος. Μια ιστορία που κόβει την ανάσα και που θα σας κρατήσει πάνω από το βιβλίο µέχρι πολύ αργά τη νύχτα, ξάγρυπνους για πολλή ώρα ακόµα κι όταν φτάσετε στην τελευταία σελίδα». New York Times «Η ανάγνωση της Σιωπηλής συζύγου είναι µια αµαρτωλή απόλαυση!» Kate Atkinson «Σαν µικροσκοπική ρωγµή στο γυαλί του πεπρωµένου, η Σιωπηλή σύζυγος εξετάζει την έσχατη συντριβή ενός απολύτως πολιτισµένου γάµου. Έντονη, σαγηνευτική και απολύτως συναρπαστική, η πένα της Harrison προκαλεί τους χαρακτήρες της να ξεπεράσουν τα όριά τους και να βγουν σε έναν κόσµο όπου τα πάντα είναι πιθανά, ακόµη και ο φόνος». Elizabeth Brundage «ΥΠΕΡΟΧΟ… Καλύτερο από το Gone Girl της Gillian Flynn». Sophie Hannah
