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».

Typically, men are good at creating rifts in relationships but terrible at mending them, especially after they've repeatedly betrayed their partner through sexual infidelity. For the most part, cheating men are both intimacy-challenged and empathy-challenged, and, as such, they lack the skills needed to overcome the damage wrought by their infidelity. Robert Weiss has spent over twenty years in the treatment of sex and intimacy issues, helping both cheating men and their betrayed spouses. In Out of the Doghouse he shares his expertise, illuminating the ways in which men can move beyond their usual feeble efforts to smooth things over. Sure, saying "I'm sorry" and trying to "buy forgiveness" with flowers and jewelry may temporarily calm the stormy seas, but these actions do nothing to re-establish trust, which is what a distraught woman needs if she hopes to feel better about her relationship over the long-term. The simple truth is men and women are very different when it comes to relationships. While men are able to compartmentalize things like sexual infidelity, women typically view cheating as an affront to their entire relationship. They think: "If he is lying to me about sex, he's probably lying to me about everything." For betrayed women, trust just flat-out disintegrates. And without proper guidance, men have little hope of restoring it. Weiss provides exactly the needed guidance in Out of the Doghouse, helping men move past the usual roadblocks in ways that will not only save a damaged relationship, but make it better than ever.
