Description

**THE INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER**

"An unforgettable—and Hollywood-bound—new thriller... A mix of Hitchcockian suspense, Agatha Christie plotting, and Greek tragedy."
Entertainment Weekly

The Silent Patient is a shocking psychological thriller of a woman’s act of violence against her husband—and of the therapist obsessed with uncovering her motive.

Alicia Berenson’s life is seemingly perfect. A famous painter married to an in-demand fashion photographer, she lives in a grand house with big windows overlooking a park in one of London’s most desirable areas. One evening her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot, and Alicia shoots him five times in the face, and then never speaks another word.

Alicia’s refusal to talk, or give any kind of explanation, turns a domestic tragedy into something far grander, a mystery that captures the public imagination and casts Alicia into notoriety. The price of her art skyrockets, and she, the silent patient, is hidden away from the tabloids and spotlight at the Grove, a secure forensic unit in North London.

Theo Faber is a criminal psychotherapist who has waited a long time for the opportunity to work with Alicia. His determination to get her to talk and unravel the mystery of why she shot her husband takes him down a twisting path into his own motivations—a search for the truth that threatens to consume him....

    Left me in suspense throughout the entirety of the book. I can normally figure out who is guilty pretty early on in most reads, but The Silent Patient left me guessing until the very end. I was shocked! So beautifully crafted!! Highly recommend to any psychological thriller fans!

    Its a quick read around a classic unreliable narrator. As many said, it starts a bit slow but the end is fast. Last 30 so pages go by quickly. Intriguing storyline nonetheless. The touch of greek mythology makes it unique.
  • A definite page turner that gets you thinking.

    I really liked this book... it had me reading for 2 days straight! A very well written book, however the ending happened abruptly and left me somewhat dissatisfied.
