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.
I was a little apprehensive about starting this book, I’ve been reading so many psychological thrillers that I thought I’d be bored by it. This wasn’t the case, I really enjoyed this book. There were so many times that I changed my mind about who the killer was. Crawford really did a good job of messing with my mind a bit. I think that’s the main reason why I stayed invested til the end. I just needed to know who did it! For those who like psychological thrillers, I think you’ll enjoy this.
