Publisher's Summary

A stylish psychological thriller with the compelling intrigue of The Silent Wife and Turn of Mind and the white-knuckle pacing of Before I Go to Sleep - in which a woman suffering from bipolar disorder cannot remember if she murdered her friend.
Dana Catrell is shocked when her neighbor, Celia, is brutally murdered. To Dana's horror she was the last person to see Celia alive. Suffering from mania, the result of her bipolar disorder, she has troubling holes in her memory, including what happened on the afternoon of Celia's death.
Her husband’s odd behavior and the probing of Detective Jack Moss create further complications as she searches for answers. The closer she comes to piecing together the shards of her broken memory, the more Dana falls apart. Is there a murderer lurking inside her...or is there one out there in the shadows of reality, waiting to strike again?
A story of marriage, murder, and madness, The Pocket Wife explores the world through the foggy lens of a woman on the edge.

Best "who done it" this year!!!

Would you listen to The Pocket Wife again? Why?

Yes, most definitely. Great story line. 5 + Stars!!! A must read!


What other book might you compare The Pocket Wife to and why?

The Pocket Wife is in a class by itself, although I think Stephen King would like this book, although it's not a horror story. To me, Susan Crawford writes very much like King. This is a true compliment!


Which scene was your favorite?

When Jack Moss confronts Leanora.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"Don't Judge a Book by it's Cover"


Any additional comments?

Cassandra Campbell does a SUPERB job of narrating this audiobook.
Looking forward to Susan Crawford's next novel.

Maddening nonsense... I may not make it!!

I have never written a review before finishing, but I am exactly half way through this book now, and I may not be able to finish.
There is a bit of a storyline, and some unlikable characters so far, but mostly just crazy gibberish. I am trying to hang in there, and IF I do, and IF it improves in the 2nd half... I will edit my review.

**2nd half update**
I made it, and the 2nd half was definitely better than the first.
