The Pocket Wife By Susan Crawford


An amazing talent makes her debut with this 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 during a breakdown.

Dana Catrell is horrified to learn she was the last person to see her neighbor Celia alive. Suffering from a devastating mania, a result of her bipolar disorder, Dana finds that there are troubling holes in her memory, including what happened on the afternoon of Celia’s death. As evidence starts to point in her direction, Dana struggles to clear her name before her own demons win out.

Is murder on her mind—or is it all in her head?

The closer she comes to piecing together 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


The Pocket Wife By Susan Crawford Book Review 

A few had been moaning this book is similar to Girl on a Train, how is this similar? Because of a woman got a drunk with her neighbor and the next thing she knew, the neighbor wounds up dead? So each book that has a storyline with alcoholism, drunken night, and blackouts is going too compared to Girl on a Train? Every book is similar to another book, we can say that The Handmaids tale is similar to 1984. Fifty Shades of Grey is similar to the story in Bad Behavior-The Secretary, or Story of O. Well, Fifty Shades copied all great erotic stories anyway. Fanfic of Twilight that says a lot. Give a book to some people and watch them tear it apart. In the book my character is a drunk so is she going to be compared to Rachael Watson? When she’s not even the same or similar? Get back to me on this.


So The pocket Wife. where to start.

What attracted me to this book is its stunning cover. In the Pocket Wife, we have Dana Catrell wakes from a drunken stupor in time to see an ambulance pull into her neighbor’s house a few doors down. Celia Steinhauser has been murdered. But Dana who struggles with bipolar disorder was at her house only a few hours ago. Celia wanted to show her a photo – a photo of Dana’s husband with another woman – and Dana has blank spots about what happened to the rest of the afternoon. Why are the husbands always cheating dirtbags in this situation?
